Earth Day 2009: The Beach Edition

I'd defy anyone to walk along the beach this morning and not be inspired


by the remnants of last night's mist swirling off the Sound


by the random pink shells amongst the wave-smoothed pebbles


or the assembly of worms washed up on the shore

worms!!! oh man, why did you do that to me?

Nadine @ BDG said...

beautiful shells-- a walk on the beach with your camera seems to be a perfect way to honor Earth Day.

worms are very eco-friendly - it's not like it was a snake... you didn't click, did you?

modernemama said...

Nadine - do you know hard it is to walk two big dogs and hold the camera steady?

Nadine @ BDG said...

Hah, no but I'd love to see a youtube video of it next time!

I had to giggle @ this one. Dreamy shots of water, shells.....then a reality shot of worms.

I just found your blog... looking for a beach house to rent this summer for my family. Its a terrible task, only because its so overwhelming and most of what I find are condos! Any suggestions?

Megan: that depends where you want to go.
The Jersey Shore? Try Shore Vacations.
Fire Island NY? Try Fire Island rentals.

Loved the shell pic.

The worms...not so much!lol

Guess they are good for the environment though.

How neat to live near enough to the ocean to visit it regularly.

Love being inspired by nature. There is nothing more simple or sweet in a day!

Becky: it is fantastic but in the interests of full disclosure I live on the north shore which is the Sound between New York and Connecticut. The ocean is the south side of the island but it's all wonderful.
