Ocean Gifts

Eternity begins and ends with the ocean's tides

All during childhood I was tantalized by and dreamed about oceans. When I was seventeen I drove with a friend to Norfolk Virginia, dipped into the ocean for the first time and it was love at first encounter. For me the best thing about being in the area of California that I am is that I'm two hours from the ocean and the same distance to the mountains.

This past weekend we arrived at Weston Beach at high tide and various gifts had been left on the shore. I was fascinated and couldn't stop peering through my camera viewfinder to try and capture the textures, colors and shapes I could see. It was an encounter with an alien world and one I'll hope to visit again and again.
