Chris stayed home with Cannon while Flannery was at school yesterday and I went for a 3 mile walk along the ocean. I usually stay on the promenade or in town, but I hadn't been on the sand at all since we moved here, and I felt drawn to it.
I walked, talked to God, cried some, sang and walked fast at times until I was breathing hard and getting my heart pumping good. I stomped in the water and splashed like a child. I thanked God for my husband...probably 10 or more times. He was just on my mind and heart. He is such a good man. He takes care of me and encourages me to be healthy and strong and silly. I needed a break from home and this was so nice to just walk...alone.
I, of course, took my camera...
2 seagulls were barking at eachother and stealing this from one another. I thought originally it was a crab shell...nope. It was a cup in crabshell colors. So funny the things we fight about that don't matter at all.
The clouds began to part as I walked along the ocean.
Thousands of fish were dead and scattered in a line, having been dumped there the day before by the high tide.
I spoke to a local who was walking her dog and she had heard 2 stories. One, that a fisherman lost his net...and the other was that it was the end of their life span. I would think the earlier of the ideas was true. SO many fish.
I wore my "flip flops" so I could walk in the waves.
Glad I had my shoes on...an 8" Jelly Fish came into view.
Then...a 3" mini-jelly...
I love the birds as they do their own "clam digging." They get so many clams. I always see empty razor clam shells...razor clams are my favorite!!!
Look! It's our house!
As I walked north, I saw a large object...prople were gathering to see what it could be.
Well, it was a HUGE old pipe! It was as high as my chest, and didn't budge when I pushed on it. Pretty though...
That green is almost "Hillary" by Bazzill...(scrappers know what I'm talking about.)
It must have been a sprayer of some sort...Might have to look it up online or something.
Here's the only whole-ish sanddollar I found. Dang Oregon coast.
On my way back, I found a nice place to sit and let my pant cuffs dry out a little. Everywhere I look, it's an amazing view.
I have no complaints about my life. I love it!
