On the beach

We weren’t looking for shells like our grandkids do on every beach they visit. The larger discoveries are more to the liking of my husband and I. At least it started out that way.


Driftwood is always a treat on any beach. The weathered remains of trees long uprooted from their earthly homes and cast adrift, often find a resting place on a beach. 





Sometimes the tree is a curious tangle of seaweed and twisted wood.





Driftwood makes a great seat on the beach too.





Colour other than blue and sand always catch the eye on the beach. This seaweed isn’t visible at high tide.





This lobster trap hasn’t caught any crustaceans lately.





Near the Marram grass, children have taken time to position rocks and sticks above the high tide mark.





Grasshoppers were invisible until they hopped on the sand in front of us. We found  them, as tiny and as well hidden as they were, on the sand near the Marram grass.




There is more to see at the beach than sand, water and shells.

I've always liked the wild look of driftwood.

I like your collection of pictures, especially that one of the rocks and sticks that the children stockpiled! :-)

What a calming beach. Wish I was there.

You wonder how long that old lobster trap has been in the sand.

Which reminds me that grasshopper season will probably begin here any day now.

There is always something to see - for those who keep open eyes, hearts and minds. Add me to the driftwood fans too.

I always like finding pieces of driftwood and different coloured glass that has washed up nice and smooth. The lobster trap is a nice sight too.

A beach is such a treasure, in more ways than one, Grace.

Marie Smith said...

Of course, cairns. I couldn’t remember the name and neglected to look it up. Thank you Joanne.

There is always something different for sure EC. You just have to bring an awareness to the situation.

I never have success with sea glass Bill.
