It was a nice day for a long walk on the beach with Bodie. He blew out his knee early this year so it's been quite a while since he's been there. It's clear that he saved up some energy for this - it's a joy to see him run and frolic in the surf. But all that running makes him mighty thirsty. Much to the amusement (and possibly horror) of the parents and tykes at the adjacent playground he likes to drink from the drinking fountain.
The sand crabs are molting, I'm told, and there were carcasses and body parts everywhere.
This "highway ice plant" (carpobrotus edulis) is not native, and is in fact considered an invasive species around here. But it's very attractive in bloom.
What a beautiful planet this is. I feel very lucky to live here.
