Beachcombing







At Newcastle Beach yesterday my eye was distracted from the gorgeous views by shiny colorful objects in the sand. I decided to start collecting them. Bottle caps, tiparillo filters, a lot of styrofoam and even a waterlogged boot. I was alone for a while, but then people became intrigued and joined me. A treasure hunt. Shiny bright colors.

It's just a little bit of beach, but now I feel like I own it. I also understand my dog's nature a bit better now--we're both just treasure hunters.

Cool post, Robin! Your first two pictures are overlapping in Firefox. The lighter pic almost completely covers the other pic. It looks fine in Opera, so it probably looks fine in Internet Explorer. But in Firefox, it looks weird.

Dang, Preston. We're a Microsoft family--you know that!

This is a very Mike-Bristow activity, you know! Now your job is to turn them into art.

That's so true, T! I was thinking of Mike the whole time.
