Chappaquoit Island

I love tidal flats.  The certain evidence of tidal flow left in sand striations.  I love the smell and the anticipation of the next great find from the girls.  Starfish and snails, hermit crabs and tiny minnows.  Shells and egg cases, beach glass and pebbles all too soon hidden again from view as the tide inexorably flows back to cover them again.

I love the ocean. I love the beach. I live in Iowa. I don't think I could get much more landlocked if I tried. It stinks. I will live vicariously through your beautiful pictures. :)

Have a great day!

Great pictures. I need to dig up old photos of Grande Isle, where my family went for day trips in Louisiana back in the day before BP muck rolled in. The whole island is closed unless you are media, Coast Guard, or BP. Very sad day for Louisiana. Enjoy your favorite beach before it's too late.

What a great post. Having grown up in Hawaii, I love the beach. These were great photos. I'm a little homesick now.
Thanks for stopping by my place. Hope to see you again soon. Have a great day.

I have my youngest son at college orientation and had hoped to go the beach for a couple days afterward. However, the oil spill has ended the possibility for a first time view of the sugar sand beaches. I hope they're not ruined forever.

Oh, and I'm jealous. Read your previous post. You brush your hair when you get up in the morning? Puts me to shame.

hi, thanks for stopping by my blog!

I used to love hunting for special shells and petoskey stones Up North when I was young. It's amazing how beautiful some shells are!

Yay! You did win the LENS photo challenge! Congrats!
