Beachcombing in the Rain

I went to Sandy Neck in mid-October to get some small stones for that lighthouse project I featured.  It was a cool, foggy, breezy day but I was out there in shorts and a long sleeve shirt.  By the time I was done, my hair was dripping wet.  The other people I saw walking along were bundled up in jeans, hoodies and coats.  

It's not a great beach for glass but I got 3 small pieces.  I was mostly focused on the stones.

I love it when the water does this....pools around a bit of sand near shore making a mini sand bar.  This was at high tide too.  

When I was a kid I would love to play in these tide pools.  It was a whole other world.

I think these are sandpipers.

More magical tidepools.


  1. Very calming photos... I would be down there collecting rocks too!

  2. I'm freezing just looking at your pictures! I love when the water makes those mini-sandbars too. They are so pretty.

  3. Your photos always make me long to be at the ocean!

    Winter cometh....just to make us all feel better tho', this time in 8 weeks, Christmas will be all over ;0)

  5. I think it is so amazing you are able to visit the beach whenever your heart desires. If it were me and I lived close enough my heart would desire every single day. ♥

  6. There's so much beauty in every square inch of beach. You capture it well, JoJo.

    Have a great weekend.

    PS I enlarged the picture on my blog. Thanks for your feedback. I didn't realize how small it was. =)


  7. I have given you an award because you are just plain awesome! Please stop by to pick it up! ♥

  8. ::sighs:: Lovely. I so envy you, living so near the ocean.
