It’s not tide pool season until late fall but sometimes it’s good to look back and see what has been missed.
There’s something about the colors here — and also perhaps the composition — that pulls me in. The path of the water, the two bright white shells nestled in close harmony, the bit of pink-purple in the corner, and the ever-present kelp pods: they are the essence of the shallows.
I’ve been missing the shore; haven’t been on the beach since May. I’ll have to try out the new bad-chemicals-but-it-might-work bug repellent soon. Then I can ponder some of the current magic — from this season.
