Had a bad week this week.
I found out that a friend of mine had passed away,
and his funeral was Tuesday.
I felt very sad last night and this morning
so I decided to take myself off to the beach
to try and contemplate and recharge.
I have always really loved the beach.
There's something about the water and the waves.
So I headed down to my Favorite haunt.
And it was perfect!!!
I had the place to myself.
Here's a picture of my footprints.
I took great pleasure in splashing the
water as I walking the shore line.
Like the crazy person I am I started to chuckle
cause if there had of been any company
I would have splashed them for sure!!!
I was definitely in the mood for a splash fight!
Lots of interesting stuff to poke, like seaweed,
lots of shells and a few awesome bits of driftwood.
A cool looking black shell??
Lucky for me, the tide was going out,
so I was able to cross the creek
and walk along the more secluded part.
I had a little look through the sandy mangrove part.
It was a bit creepy....
Eyes alert and open for any snapping handbags!!
And there I found the perfect log to perch.
It is a lovely tranquil spot!!
I was sitting there and some movement caught my eye.
Looking up I saw one of my favorite birds!!!!
I think It's an Azure kingfisher!!
And the closer I looked I noticed there were two!
Really hard to see their colors, they were turned away from me.
But, oh well, still pretty to watch.
Eventually I got up and continued my walk.
I did a good job at pestering the little crabs that
make these wonderful tapestries of sand balls along the beach.
Had a bit of a joke with myself!!!!
Couldn't help myself and tried to
take a picture of the glitter in the sand.
I do love some sparkle!!!!!
By the end of it, I felt a little better about everything.
And decided to do a little tribute in the sand for my friend.
May he rest in peace.
So here's my pic of the pic's.
Couldn't decide, so you get two!!!
And now I'm noticing I have that
"You've been in the sun" glow to my face :)
Ciao for now.
