On a day where I was musing on the impermanence of things a stroll on the beach. Tides come and go, wind blows the sand about. Shore birds pick at things and perhaps the occasional vandal-tyke gives a big ol' stomp.
Sand sculpture on a somber day.
Mermaids are a common theme. The one above just needs to run a comb through her sea weed hair and re-do her face a bit. The one below has a nice shell afro intact but is crumbling in the hot Florida weather.
A alligator whose head has eroded away. I think that must have been just where the high tide and its lapping waves stopped.
Almost two weeks after Christmas and we still have a shell Santa and his sleigh. This was placed high above the tide line.
A sea turtle that looks like a soccer ball. I hope it does not confuse the real sea turtle hatchlings that sometimes trek across this very beach.
