Life at the beach

I always enjoy time spent at the beach.

It’s beautiful, it is relaxing…peaceful…calming. Very much so. But it’s also so much more. It is life…it is living. The waves are like breaths, rhythmic and without thought. The water full of beings and movement…very mysterious. There is always something to see and to explore. I am not a sunbather. I am not a surfer. I’d be interested in fishing, but I haven’t tried that yet. Mostly, I am a seeker. Shells. Animals. Cool beach things.

Here are cool encounters we’ve had so far:

Bait?

Dolphins

I took seven plus minutes of video (click on the “dolphins” hyperlink above to see a trimmed down version), completely fascinated by these dolphins, at a least three of them, working together (had to be) to get some fishing done. Wild stuff.

Migration

Then leaving our “camp” on the point (Long Beach) this evening, we noticed some monarchs fluttering around an evergreen. Butterflies have been all over the island, in mid-migration – but we’ve not seen this many at once or in one spot before.
