ocean wonder

Listen to the sound of the waves...

Parker River National Wildlife Refuge called to me today. The temperature edged up to freezing, the air was dry, and I needed a walk by the sea. It was about an hour before high tide when I started my beach walk. The beach was narrowing but a good walking surface remained. I had to move quickly a few times when I was standing, listening, watching the waves. Sometimes the waves rolled over my resting spot; it's always good to pay close attention to the ocean.

I feel lucky to live within a reasonable driving distance from Parker River and the Atlantic Ocean. It provides a wonderful place to walk and to reflect.
