Beach scenes Sunday

There are about 4 waterfalls on the stretch of beach I’ve been walking on these days. The rain was just stopping Sunday when I got started, and water was heading out to sea via every arroyo and crevice. Wind came up, sun came out, the ocean was choppy but with a nice swell.

Negative ionized, energy-generating air…

Here was an engine block, had to be off a ship because there’s no way a car could get within miles of the cliffs.  Ocean life creeping over it, looks like fossilized ghost.

About a 3½ hour roundtrip. I got to a rocky point, took off my backpack and just looked out at the reef and waves. I felt an overwhelming sense of love for the ocean, Jesus, it’s so beautiful and rich and wonderful, an everyday miracle in our lives. And it’s just there.

Today it’s a Spring sunny morning, mmm-mmm! To boot, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith is singing Muddy Waters’ song, “World Is In An Uproar.” Ain’t it?
