It Soothes My Soul...

Saturday was warm, 58 degrees warm,
the sun was shinning and the skies were a beautiful shade of blue.
It was the perfect day for a long walk along the shore to look for sea glass.
It was low tide and the ocean was calm like a lake.
The air was filled with the scent of salt 
and there was just enough of a breeze to tassel about your hair.
The clouds were thin wisps of white magic, stretched across the sky.
Way off in the distance, there's a barge, overhead, squabbling sea gulls!
I have not visited in some time, 
but it is just as I always remember, soothing and peaceful.

Scrubby pine trees line the path away from the beach.
We only found 7 pieces of sea glass, but that was ok.
It's my place!

This post is for my sister Kathy, she too has a great love for the sea!

I have the flu so I am turning comments off. Just enjoy the beauty of the ocean.

Few things beat the senses raised, walking a calm beach.

(Except the whisper of pines on a forest trail)

Beautiful...especially like the old pier pictures.

It's nice to have that option, especially in January.

I know that I've told you many a time just how much I love the ocean, and so, I will just say...
Thank you!!
