Ocean side moments near home

Sharing a few detailed moments from the beach near home.

One of our go-to beaches is steep, and when the tide and swell combine lots of mini sea debris gets deposited in the sand. Tiny shells, sea glass, and smoothed over stones sit in a vein running north to south along the beach. Finding the interesting bits and pieces takes a leisurely pace and a patient eye, but it’s fun to assemble a little collection before leaving it behind for the next person to find. 

I also found an interesting bit of sand erosion creating a miniature plateau. The creek diverted up the beach and eroded the west side bank into various sand-forms. Regular visits to the beach change your perspective on time and change. To the visitor a beach is a beach, but to the regular there are so many individual changes that are worth paying attention to.
