Foggy Beach Walk | Serenity | northern California photographer

Each month when I plan my post for our Serenity blog circle, I gravitate toward beach scenes.  This month is no different as I’m sharing a recent foggy beach walk complete with gulls flying overhead. But, if you look closely, you’ll also see two bald eagles in the lower right of the second and third images.  I certainly didn’t expect them on my walk!  But, there they were!

It is no secret that the ocean is my calming place. Like many of you I find being at the beach to have such a peaceful effect on me. When walking along the beach, smelling the fresh ocean air, hearing the gulls, listening to the waves as they crash and repeat their rhythm, I cannot help but take a deep breath (and more) and instantly feel myself relax. I’m ever watchful for that perfect shell that has arrived on shore, or the interesting shape the sea kelp has taken. I am at the beach completely.

“Carry me out the ocean, where my drifting thoughts flow free.  Guide them to a far distant land, that only the mind can see.  There I shall paint a great portrait, of what this world should be. A place shoutout senseless wars, and human poverty.”
