beach gold

Walking the beach Saturday at the -3.0 tide, the first bird we saw on the beach was… a pair of goldfinches. Only one in this picture. But there were two down enjoying the sun and the water and the seaweed. I don’t think of goldfinches as shore birds, but they didn’t seem to care what I thought….

Mundane Monday #165: sand

Good morning, Mundane Monday Photographers! This crab is smaller than my littlest toenail, and has acres of dunes to cross at the very low tide. What does your Monday look like?

The theme last week was a use for hands:

KL Allendoerfer with fingerprints.

If you have a mundane sandy picture, link and I will list them next week. Have a wonderful day no matter how many dunes you have to cross.

 

 

beach blues and purples

Yesterday there was a -3.0 foot tide at 12:47 and it was perfect for a beach walk. My daughter is home from college for a few days and an old friend came up from Portland. We headed along North Beach. I had my camera zoomed all the way out and was trying to photograph a crow right along the water line. I got kelp and rocks and water and blues and purples instead. It was a gorgeous day.
