Treasures from the sea

At the risk of jinxing it, Sunday dawned cloudless, sunny and warm. It was just what I needed to pull me out of my winter blues.

I headed to the beach and was welcomed with wide open sand and calming ocean breezes. The rest of the week promises to be as beautiful.

This weekend’s photo hike was at Gulf Island National Seashore near Navarre Beach, FL. The recent rain washed up a few shells, and other treasures from sea.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. Beautiful. When I visited my brother in NZ, much to my sister in law’s amusement I took loads of pictures of their beaches. I picked up a piece of driftwood that was so intricate, it looked like it was made of lace.
