Important Things to Remember

Chances are, the things that you loved when you were a child, you will continue to love when you are an adult.

Serenity Beach

Yesterday I went and spent a good couple of hours down on Serenity ("Shelly" to my family) beach. It had struck me how I'd been going along the beach pretty much daily on my morning walks, but I could not remember the last time I spent more then tops: ten min. on the beach. So I decided to go down, hang out and (since it was low tide) do one of my FAVOURITE things to do when I was young: Explore the rock pools.


Serenity Beach

Rock pools are magical. I firmly believe this.

Serenity Beach

Vegetation is varied, and in order to spy the thousands of lifeforms that exist in these little worlds you really have to... slow down... and sit... and watch.. and wait...

Serenity Beach

And eventually, they will reveal themselves to you. An incredible, effective form of meditation.

Nice beach pictures. It's cool you've got a beach within walking distance.

I need to hit the seashore sometime this summer/fall.

Thank you! It IS cool I have a beach so close to me, and such a shame that I live so close and visit it so rarely. I am trying to change that.

I'm sure there's lots of neat things in your area though not just beach related!

Yes! I have always, always loved rock pools, and I hear you about how deep they can be!
It's funny, a thing I noticed the other day when I was climbing around them is the aversion I now have of actually getting wet and in amongst the seaweed and critters. My two nieces also love the rock pools since for a long time they were too afraid of the waves to play in the surf; they would jump feet first into the pools and splash around.

I wince a little bit at the thought of disrupting that little ecosphere, but also ick a little bit at all the -stuff- in there as well especially knowing how creepycrawly (TOTALLY AWESOME! But not anything I want to put my feet onto..) some things in rockpools can get.
Sometimes I wish I could have that fearless attitude again.

Yes!! Damn that education! I had completely forgotten about stonefish(!!!)
In my head at the moment are the little blue ringed octopi since I recently had one pointed out to me while down on a beach (of COURSE I didn't have my camera with me at the time.. not to self ALWAYS CARRY A CAMERA).

Why must something so deadly be so completely adorable?

*giggles at the song too*
