On The Beach



We're having a nice spell of warmer than usual weather, sort of Indian Summer. My daughter stopped by and took me along with her to the beach.

There's a tangle of morning glories that grow along the top of the cliff above the beach. The late afternoon sun set this one alight.



These little shore birds flock together. When the waves recede, they follow, quickly digging for sand crabs, then turn tail and run away as the next wave comes in.



The curlews take their time and are more solitary.



Even though the tide was outgoing, a few of the waves pushed the water up all the way to the cliff, so it was good to be barefoot.



Once she'd had her share of waves, we headed up the stairs for home.
