The flats

This is really old. For some reason it was saved as a draft. Here is is.... months over due.

There is a section of our beach that I don't often visit. It is flat, away from the surf and often full of footprints (which makes it harder to see the sea glass). But in the last week the waves have been washing up higher and leaving this area smooth and clean. The waves leave behind small patches of sand and occasional pieces of glass. This is what I have been finding the last little while. And last week I found these beauties!
This is a staged photo. I liked how the two colors looked on the white piece of shell.

My collection from "the flats". Mostly small but some nice pieces.

Again, I staged this but I liked the various shades of green.

Fantastic color found in it's natural habitat!
 Today, Child #3 and I headed out for a beach walk. The beach looked so fresh and clean the only trash on the beach were all the birds. I think they like the smooth sand too! There are a lot of birds hanging out. Porpoises were out and I loved that they were close enough for Child #3 to see them. She was sure that it was a Mama, Papa and Baby! We only got a small pocket full, but I came home with a heart full of love for where I live and my darling baby, even if she is growing up so big (as she often reminds me!)
Little pieces I found on my beach walk today with Child #3.

Hope you do something today to fill your heart! Kirstin

  1. I'm definitely a fan of the flats too...they've been very good to me :) I love that you added another red to your collection, and that teal-blue one is wonderful!
