After a marathon of mushroom picking, Jeff and I decided to take Thanksgiving day off to rest relax and enjoy the beach.
We took a short walk to a bluff
I have to admit I did look for mushrooms..
but did not find any..
I love these mammoth rocks jutting out of the ocean.
They told us that the bridge was not ready and needed to be secured bit more.
See what happened to the bridge…Jeff got a bit wet..
One of the young boys turned to me after Jeff crossed and said..
You were right..and he was wrong.
~out of the mouth of babes..
Not being able to cross the deeper water Jeff looks for another crossing point.
I stay where I am until he crosses and we walk the beach heading south.
Its a gorgeous beach..I didn't find any shells on this beach.. We did find a mermaid resting in the sand..
I think a gull checked it out also!
“The Sea Gooseberry is a type of comb jelly which belong to the phylum Ctenophora,” said Seaside Aquarium’s Tiffany Boothe. “Animals that belong to this phylum have one distinct feature: their ‘combs,’ or groups of cilia that they use for swimming.”
I took many photos here..
Do you see it?
We crossed a driftwood area to access another part of the beach..
I think this may be a Moon Jelly
I love how it captured the light..
Memories Of The Beach
We went to the beach to get wind in our hair
to stand on the sand and simply to stare.
To let the surf tickle toes and dampen our clothes
as we played 'run away'
from the wavelets at play.
We went to the beach to climb on the rocks
find cool shallow pools where we'd take of our socks,
and peer in the waters to see what we might find
that the waves of the sea,
had last left behind.
We went to the beach to find coloured shells
the kind that when placed to our ears
make the sound of the ocean appear,
and gathered rocks that we never would find
in the places we walked,
for most of the time.
We went to the beach and all that, we did find
and the smell of the salt refreshed our tired minds.
I'll never forget the laughter and sounds
and the freedom to run,
on that wet sandy ground.
We went to the beach my family and I
and there we were one,
with the ocean, the beach, and the sky.
It was getting close to sunset so we made our way back to Homey for some appetizers and then would head back to get a few sunset views at the overlook.
