Thank you all so much for your comments and stories yesterday. I’ll admit that I wrote that post with a bit of trepidation but I was gratified to see that you all understood exactly what I was trying to say. And now we look to the future. As President-Elect Obama said last night, we are not red states and blue states, we are the United States.
OKay, I know I said that today this would return to being a knitting blog but I hope you didn’t take that too literally. I’m not going to talk about knitting today I’m going to talk about the beach.
You know I love the beach. I love it best in the summer. The warmth of the sun, the feel of the water, the sand and shells and seaweed – it makes me feel relaxed and peaceful and good.
But the beach in the fall can be equally beautiful. Sure, you can’t swim or sunbathe but you can enjoy the sound of the waves and the wind in your hair. The solitude is perfect for a bit of contemplation.
And the pictures are just as pretty.
I took all of these photos at Old Silver Beach this past Sunday. It was windy and cold but it was still gorgeous.
I love the beach.
