Vitamin D Day

The sun came out.  I came up with an excuse to go to the beach.  Don’s got his own projects goin’ so he stayed home.

I think he knew I’d sneak in a beach walk after I got my work done.

I love watching these little birds.  I think they are Sanderlings.  They chase the waves out and the waves chase them back in.

If the wave catches up to them they fly to a different part of the beach; all the while peeping.

I passed just two groups of people on my walk.  Tillicum Beach is never crowded.

There are more people in the summertime but I’d never call it crowded (compared to Galveston).

The spindrift was gorgeous today.  And I counted 8 – 10 crab boats.

Don also saw me take the camera.  So waiting for the sunset was a given.

Meerkat Moment

We always get a chuckle, while enjoying the sunset, at all the people who stop what they are doing to watch the sun go down.

We call those “meerkat moments” because we look like a bunch of meerkats.  (Google Meerkat)

I’ve often wondered why we’re drawn to watch the sunset.  Beauty, last glimpse of daylight, movement without sound, serenity…
