Tonight’s sunset brought a serene end to the day.
The sun seemed to melt along the horizon.
The sand swallowed the incoming tide.
We were a scattered few on the beach tonight. Short conversations pleasantly muted by the lapping shore.
At midday today the tide was out and the stripes of sand and water leading out to the bay was striking. The ice in the foreground as well as the patches of grass broke up the pattern and kept the view from being dull.
After days of rain the sky cleared at least a little bit.
It was much cooler this morning than it has been in quite a while. About halfway through the walk the Northwest wind picked up and dropped some bay effect snow/sleet. It seemed like the moisture whipped up from about a half mile away didn’t have time to fully form as flakes and came down as ice. I thought it ironic that they looked very much like ice melt pellets.
The low lying vegetation on the edge of the forest seemed to hold up these wind formed frozen droplets like jewels for all to see.
