Last Friday was the Vernal Equinox....but spring is still in question here in Maine! Since the day was warmer than bitter cold I decided to head to the coast for a beach moment. I craved walking on thawed ground. The little town beach in Searsport is one of my favorite nearby bits of coast. I had the beach all to my Self...go figure! The steps down to the beach were still snow filled (those are handrails in the photo...not ankle rails!). I had come prepared with my handy neoprene muck boots, so no worries.
I meandered for a time and enjoyed the sound of waves, wind, & seagulls.
It was good to feel salt air on my face.
I hadn't been to coast since last fall.
Of course, I was looking for sea glass. I found some nice pieces. This purple pieces was my most exciting find! The tide was very low on account of the New Moon. I walked on parts of the beach I had never been before. I would have stayed longer but I admit to getting quite cold. Chilled to the bone but refreshed by the sea.
