Gifts from the Sea

"The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.
One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea."

~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Beach runs and beach walks...alone or with my best friend...
Warm sun, briny sea smells, blowing sand that stings...
Quiet and contemplative...
Noisy and invigorating...
All gifts from the sea. Each day is a new adventure and brings new discoveries. 

The last two days the sea has been spitting up lots of seaweed.

And tangled up in all that seaweed treasures are to be found. I'm grateful for a camera that is always with me to capture a moment or an item. I no longer desire to accumulate these sea treasures. Instead a simple photo is all that I want to take away with me.

That lesson is indeed a gift from the sea.
