Walk on the Beach

I love the beach---the last few years I have enjoyed it by taking morning walks.  Yesterday it was not until noon that I made a venture out of the house to take a walk.  I like to collect sea glass, feathers and fully formed snail or scallop shells.  You really have to take an early morning walk to find some of those things, though.  I have never had a camera with me so I was happy to take a picture of a shell that was heart shaped.  I try not to pick up too much.  I am someone who really has to control her collecting.
This is the view of the beach looking towards the north.  You can see a tower---so much controversy---people referred to it as the eye-ful tower---I with my love of Paris got a kick out of that.  Being that we are pretty much in a natural state at the beach the tower doesn't bother me so much.  The boats could use a landmark and it is not so much of an eyesore.
     I was a little disappointed in my finds...I did need to find some feathers and was able to pick up a few---I didn't take a picture of what I picked up, I will do that when I take some more pictures for my etsy shop later this afternoon.
     I couldn't decide to post about my etsy excitement last week or take you for a walk on the beach.  Since, I had my pictures uploaded already......and there were no links involved-----and it is only going to be in the 30's today----yesterday it was in the 60's I decided to post a walk on the beach.  I am grateful that this is in my town and I am sorry I take it totally for granted and don't enjoy it more.  My wish is always for more wish for Spring is to get up every morning and start my day with a walk on the beach.

Thank you for the early morning walk, I enjoyed the visit with you.
The sand between my toes felt so great until I stepped on a pointy shell and sliced the bottom of my foot. Thanks for taking me to the emergency room for stitches, my crutches are padded and comfortable. I'm home now, the meds are great. Thank you for not taking any pictures nor posting my misery. You are such a great friend.
JUST KIDDING about the foot thing...While reading your blog, I was just pretending that I was walking along with you and with my luck, this is what WOULD have happened! tee hee!
Beautiful pictures!
everything vintage

How lovely to live close enough to the beach to walk each morning. I love the beach even off season. Thank you for sharing the lovely photos. I haven't been to the beach in about six years. Wow, I didn't realize it had been that long.
