There was a looming dark cloud moving quickly towards the coast, so I thought I should take advantage of the sun while it lasted and get out there! As it turned out, the light was beautiful because of the clouds, and eventually it blew through and the sun survived to shine all day.
The weather was a bit more promising looking behind me.
I met a very nice woman named Erica while walking on the beach. She was collecting beach glass and explained to me that it was easier to see on overcast days than in the bright sun. She picked up two beautiful, large green pieces while we were chatting, and I located a small round light blue piece! Fun! I can see how this could become a tempting pass time!
Snow on the dunes
I took the dirt road back in hopes of seeing the owl again as it had flown off in that direction. These two beautiful sparrows were flitting along the fence line as I went through the path through the dunes.
