My Walk on the Beach

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

It was so beautiful at the beach, we were there at low tide so the walking was level. Usually you are walking with one foot higher than the other and you have to be sure to walk the opposite on the way back or you feel lopsided for weeks.
There were beautiful shells that the tide had brought in, also a lot of seaweed which brought the birds. there were seagulls, sea terns, and one other one that I do not know its name. I did not realize how many different colors the gulls came in. They are like snowflakes no two alike.
My daughter and I walked for over an hour with her pushing me all the way. I felt so good when it was over and wonder why I am not out there every day.

    Sometimes it takes another person to help you see the picture. I would like to have a beach nearby to stroll along, but there just aren't that many in Oklahoma. emoticon It does sound like you had fun.

    You are making me so jealous. While you are at the beach I look out the window and see snow and the temp at -24c or -11F not counting the windchill.
I'm glad you had a great time.

    Tempting me again Sheryl with that title, LOL I may show up on your doorstep one of these days then you will be on the beach everyday. Glad you had your daughter to move you along. Present moments like that make future memories. I'm so sentimental and envious too! Thank you for sharing. The temp here reads 8 degrees, brrrr. I hope you wander off for another stroll on the beach. Take your camera along so you can attach pics to your blog. Hugs, Keke

    I enjoyed hearing about your walk on the beach,living on an island we have several beaches nearby i tend to take them for granted,a walk on the beach is very therepeutic it really clears your head,i must make a note to go more often.

    Sounds wonderful. I laughed about walking when it isn't level with one foot higher. That drives me nuts too.

Wish I was there. Enjoy!
