I think I will end this series of beach photos and quotes with this photo as the sun slowly dips into the Pacific Ocean. Sinbad and I had left the Redwoods and we drove our way out to the coast for the evening. After dinner I decided to take a walk out onto broad flat Clam Beach and maybe catch a nice sunset photo. It was a pleasant evening and I had the beach all to myself except for a young woman who was slightly crippled. She was having a difficult time getting through the soft sand with her cane and eventually had to turn back far from the firmer sand of the ebb tide. I felt bad for her and the thought entered my mind that if I wasn't such a wimpy guy I would have offered to carry her. I wondered if she would have accepted. I thought how fortunate I was to have my health and fitness - despite my inability to lift and carry a woman.
I noticed the shells, seaweed and other flotsam deposited by the tide and began to take photos with no great intent. It wasn't till later that evening (or the next day) did I upload them and was greatly pleased as to how they came out. The sunset photos were rubbish but I am keen on going out to the coast again and do more of what I've been showing off these last two weeks. And I've got oodles of quotes yet to use too.
As for this picture, a family strolled by just as I was about to head back to the Little House on the Highway and my little buddy Sinbad patiently waiting for my return. I took this final picture of the little girl collecting shells. As I walked back I thought as I always do when I see children, I wonder what kind of world will they have to deal with as adults and cannot help but to feel bad for them just as I did for the young crippled woman struggling through the soft sand.
I think too much.
