Beach days

Unlike this photo, the beach was windy and ominous today. We rushed there this morning to collect some purple sand that we saw a couple of days ago. I guess it is caused by garnet that gets washed up now and then. Pretty. Anyway, the forecast was for a rainy, windy afternoon so we went first thing. The beach is a special place to me. Any beach. I love to share it with the kids and see it with them. They see all the sticks and the debris as weapons and invention parts. I look at the birds and I enjoy the sounds.

Today we watched the winds blowing against the beach grass. It was moving in waves
Very cool. And we saw the clouds blowing in from afar. And I got my jar of purple sand to take home.
