Oh, here, I’ll just show you the birds that made the tracks:
They are those cute little birds, usually in a flock, that skitter across the wet sand so fast that you can’t see their legs. Okay, now back to the patterns.
I’ve seen thousands of these curious little squiggles but this is the first time to see what made them! Looks like some kind of worm. See it on the far, left, end of the squiggle pattern?
As the water runs past rocks or shells, or any obstruction, it makes a pattern around it. I think the sun’s shadow elongates the head around the eye. It looks like one of those native head-dress things to me. What do you see?
Here’s another pattern around a rock. Look at the detail of the little veins. God sure draws pretty!
Here’s my favorite! It looks like a stand of trees to me. It must be winter, though, because they don’t have any leaves. But the pattern is complete all the way down to the roots! Nothing but a little ridge in the sand made these patterns. The whole drawing is about 12″ tall by 18″ wide.
I left a foot-print. This person left a bike track. This should be all we leave when we leave-no-trace. The sand is like a giant Etch-a-Sketch. The tide comes in to wipe it all away and, when the tide goes out, it starts all over! How fun it is to watch Heavenly Father’s doodles!
