Sunday Beach Combing

B is for beach, bottle, boat, birds, broken, bright, billowing. All words that apply to things we saw today by the river. It was busy-much more so than normally-there were even other people on the beach for a while. The tide was really far out, so we could walk along much further than normal.
Sculpture on the shore-made of rubbish washed up there. It is a bench as well as art.

Bright orange sponge ball glowing against the strange coloured sand.

Part of a ship-at least that is what it looks like. It might be more boring and be part of a fence.

The beautifully named Sand Falcon, unloading its goods-some kind of ballast. Some kind of vehicle-part of the muck on the wheels was scraped away and underneath was very shiny silver coloured metal. This doesn't look as if it has moved in a while.
I am so looking forward to Friday-well Saturday really when we are off on our little break. This week is full of potential stress-I am trying to have a positive attitude to it all, but it is proving difficult at times! I hope everyone has a good week!

The beaches are always full of surprises even if it is trash- it is surprising trash...Do not stress through the upcoming week...I forbid it!

I want you to know I enlarged all those pictures and studied them. The foot prints, the bits of glass and shells, the whimsy of the trash sculpture, the exposed moss and the boats stranded by low tide. Beach exploration is such a treat for inlanders. Thanks for taking us along!

And I wouldn't disobey Linda Sue's forbidding of the stressing. She might come and haunt you in your dreams!

Circles within circles,wheels within wheels and wave and waft and time and tide and still we wait and comb and look and seek and the treasure beneath our feet sparkles as we reach to touch the stars.

Great finds, we are having a three day weekend this week, so hopefully we will be at the beach.

I love exploring the beach

You always find such goodies, Sarah! You deserve some kind of great scavenger award! Glad the power of positive thinking helps... and a little break/getaway helps too. ;o) Happy Days ((HUGS)

I enjoyed your beach adventures you shared with us. I have been having a rough week or two myself. We'll both make a promise to just keep on going and find pockets of rainbows in our day.
