WoodNeck Walkdoc 6/25/15

Posted on

We start this day with a morning walk to WoodNeck Beach– always a wise decision.  The weather is perfect, the birds are singing, and there is always so much to quietly observe.  Daisies grow so much better along the path than in my garden.  Waterlilies float on the marsh, not close enough to photograph, but beautiful to see. Sandalwood and honeysuckle fragrance waft in the salty breeze. The poison ivy is bushy and shiny– it almost looks pretty– until you think about it a bit more.  Sand crabs dig perfectly circular holes leaving lumpy trails of debris behind. The beach is empty and beautiful with the tide going out and the damp sand is easy to walk on. A few sun salutations are in order. Then we walk into a plover family:  mama, dad, and four little ones just born yesterday.  They scamper on the sand and are uninterrupted by man or beast.  In 26 days, they will be gone. The little ones learn to feed themselves and who knows which ones will return next year.  The lifeguard chair is turned on its side still, but it won’t be long before more folks arrive and soak up the rays, play in the sand and go for a swim.

I am a wordsmith, a fiber artist, a yogi, and a high energy, ball of fire. My glass is always half full, and I always have fifteen tasks ongoing simultaneously. Authority figures are not my friends, and I seldom color within the lines. I tend to “nest” in my cocoon-like home.
