Texture is this week’s theme for Let’s Be Wild, so let’s take a sunrise walk on the beach and see if we can find any interesting textures!
Texture of Driftwood
Walking along at low tide, we often see tiny sand dollars patrolling just beneath the surface of the sand.
Sometimes the sand patterns make lovely stand-alone artistic images.
Sand dollars always catch one’s attention.
Inspecting one closely, we see lots of texture.
We ponder the origin of seed pods.
And marvel at the simple beauty of sunlight on a lone almendra leaf.
Sometimes we find treasures hiding in those leaves!
The hermit crabs will forever catch my attention!
They enjoy an early breakfast of tender coconut flesh!
So I am forever peering into coconuts in search of treasures!
At times, my obsession pays off!
There seems to be a new fashion in hermit crab beach attire!
This one disrobed before dashing away!
At times a rare treat awaits! This left-for-dead olive ridley hatchling emerged from its shell!
Within a few minutes, it began its journey to the sea!
After a full morning, it’s time to head home. Now what did we do with the car keys?
Whew! Were we ever lucky!
