I've been a busy girl! Through a head cold and sore throat I managed to get this new piece done after our return from Florida:
While the images I used for this piece came from last year's Florida trip, I was inspired by this year's trip to get the piece done.
I think that my most favorite thing to do on a beach in Florida is to watch the Sanderlings run in and out with the waves, probing for crustations as the water drains from the beach. I have yet to see one get caught up in a wave, and they rarely even get their feet wet. They speed along the beach, ususally in small groups but sometimes singly, their stout legs a blur. I could watch them for hours. As a matter of fact, I think I have!
