Then I decided to photograph the wet rocks where the waves had been washing onto the shore. The tide was very strong, so I kept missing the shot, and got a lot of foam photos.
I became so involved in trying to capture the wet stones, that I forgot the first rule of beachcombing: NEVER turn your back on the ocean....and in this case, I was not watching the waves that were coming in so powerfully.
And I got swept off my feet WHAM!
It is kind of like texting and driving: don't. I knew better but I got distracted and althoghthe coolwater was mighty refreshing today, I came away with some cuts and bruises from the beating I got in the tide. I am lucky that is all I got.
So here is my selection for today. Out of all the ones I brought home, I love this one for its subtle changes in color:
Measures approx 1.5" and has neither cuts nor bruises.
