Winter Beach

This is a little test blogging. So I can see if I have a handle on all this.....Okay here we go.

I recently visited a friend who lives in Stamford Connecticut. Her house is about two blocks from the shore and I spent a really great couple of hours on that rocky beach.

There is something very special about a beach or shoreline in the winter. I feel a sense of peace that doesn't seem available in the frolic and excitement of the summer beach.

I will also admit that I'm a hard core beach treasure hunter. Rocks, shells, bits of metal, nothing is safe from my magpie nature. So the winter beach, with its lonely shoreline, offers up a lot more treasure.

As the sun set I headed home with heavy pockets, a camera full of memories, and a sense of calm that only a walk, surrounded by nature at her most beautiful, can give me.

Thank you.
