Foggy Morning Beachwalk in September


Went for a leisurely beach walk this morning in hopes that the fog would lift and reveal sun streaking across the water at Harper Dock, with a line of sailboats bobbing in the bay. No such luck with the fog lifting, but still a wonderul zen-like experience. Perfectly quiet in the fog, no car traffic, ferries blowing their foghorns, squawking of bald eagles (they sound a little like a squeaky wagon wheel!), a flock of Canadian Geese honking their protest at me, while I stroll among the rocks and sand of low tide.

This little stretch of beach is the one of my favorite beaches to find interesting beach glass. Years ago there used to be a brick factory right on the corner, and is also where one of the docks for the first ferries was built.

I have found aqua, cobalt blue, purple and some red pieces here. Today, I was determined to pay attention to where I was walking and tried not to pick up too many things! Still, could not resist the colors of the agate and sand-washed clear pieces of sea glass that somehow found their way into my pockets...


What an opportunity to notice colors and shapes this morning, without the bright sunshine! Like the fine

dewey lines on this spider web outlined by heavy galvanized chain. Might have missed the beautiful natural artwork if the sun had been shining.

Sounds so very nice...I wish there was more beach glass to be found where I live (Florida Gulf Coast). I think I've found MAYBE a handful of pieces in five years of living here- it's like finding gold!
