Enjoy the small things you find on your path.
I find complete serenity and peace walking and relaxing on the beach. Listening to the waves,watching the seagulls, pelicans and sandpipers in their hunt for food. Observing the children at play..what better playground for them..they seem to make their own fun building sandcastles, trying to catch a seagull, running from the waves and looking for seashells and sand dollars.
|Love to Walk on Beach|
Took delight one day on Coronado Beach watching two seagulls, one who had food and the other chasing for a bite. Watched them until they were far out in the ocean..not sure who proved to be the victor. Pelicans diving for food in the surf. Surfers catching a wave for a victorious ride to shore.

A wonderful place to reflect, to experience calmness, be silent in thoughts and a sanctuary for peace. This is where I want to be scattered when my time is at an end.
On one of my recent beach visits,I took a book of poetry that a very dear friend of mine has written. Libbe and I have been friends since 1981 when we met in Austin doing volunteer work. I consider her a sister and feel blessed to have her in my life.

|A Journey by Libbe Dennard|
Her book of poetry is available on Amazon or through finishinglinepress. It is a reflection on life's experiences,letting go,taking new roads,forgiveness and letting love into your life.
I feel that each of us can in someway relate to her poems and give us cause for reflection.
Thank you, Libbe for sharing. Looking forward to your next work of creative non-fiction "The Kindness of Fate".
After reading some poems, walked on the beach seeking sand dollars and shells for granddaughters. After several back and forth walks, found the ones shown below. All are not perfect in that the gulls got a bite of food in some.
