The sea urchin shell was whole when I picked it up off the beach but I was too cavalier when I placed it in my bag.  In the end, only one section was broken, and not lost.  So, if I am careful, I can recreate the whole with barely perceptible, yet beautiful lines, marking the breaks.

These images are from a quick walk taken just before sunset

when the low-angled light was so bright and wonderfully illuminating.

The end of day was a bit blustery and I think the tide was coming in

producing ripples and waves wearing away at the sands.

I collected some rocks that I’m sure I’ll play with over time.  Other items were picked up long enough to photograph but they were left behind and are now probably back beneath the ocean.

Such a walk was a nice way to end the day.
