Part of my daily routine in Florida is a walk down the beach. It amazes me how different it looks and feels each day. Although I am a bit of a "fair weather" friend, in that I don't walk in the cold mist or rain.
As I walk north up the gulf coast, the water level has been so high that much of the beach is missing. This is my end of the walk in that direction. Those owners have to watch their last step, don't they!
I don't do a lot of "collecting" on these walks, they are more for exercise and meditation. I feel so close to God when I make this journey, his miracle of life is all around me. I do run into some odd finds - here is the crab I found! He looks kind of creepy, but I think he was harmless.
