Announcement   ~HAPPINESS IS SOMETHING WE CREATE~
As time passes and gives us new adventures to enjoy and struggles to learn from, the beach is and always will be there waiting for you to discover all the gifts it has for you.

A walk at the beach does wonders for my stresses. I don't always feel like walking though. So there are options that work for me on those days. First choice might be sitting on a memorial bench dedicated to a young man I knew who lost his life in these waters early one summer day. I just watch the water and think of him and also the memory of my brother. The beach was his favorite place to spend time.

On the bench I listen to wild native birds that fly around through the cedar trees and the beach plum's. On rare occasions a deer strolls by looking for things to nibble on. A long quiet sit on the bench will also increase my chances of watching a rabbit or two hop by. My favorite times to visit the beach are mornings and evenings when the wildlife is most active and the sunrise and sunset are not long to wait for.
There are days I prefer to be nearer to the water. Then I look for the perfect place for picking through stones. I sit right down in the middle of a specially selected spot. Finding unique shapes, colors and sparkles in stones is like finding treasure!

The little rituals I have at the beach have developed over decades of doing what pleases me most. Visit the beach the next chance you get, pick pine cones, search for the perfect shell or stone, take pictures of the stones if you don't want to bring any home, or of the plants that are native to your beach. Plants that thrive at my local beaches are cactus and wild roses. There are beach plums and pine trees as well.
I can't think of a time when I visited the beach and didn't find something to do, even if I chose to do~nothing~just lay back and watch clouds float by...

I am blessed to live near the water's edge.

About

Seashore treasures artistically assembled to be pleasing and calming.

I am a self taught artist and enjoy being close to nature. I search for driftwood and shells all the time and find making my sculptures very relaxing. Walking the beach is a huge and wonderful part of my life! I am blessed to live near the water's edge.
