Crashing and rolling

Creating our golden sand

The waves keep breaking

  1. Nice imagery. I lived in a place where the sea made sand so quickly the city filled dump trucks with it and hauled it away on a regular basis. They used it to replenish a very famous beach elsewhere because the waves cleaned it at an alarming rate.

  2. I never thought of waves as creators, but they do make art–like we try to do!

    • Thank you, Amanda. I live one minute from the beach, so it came straight to mind.

  4. I love the beach – there’s something very restful in the sound of waves. Nicely written!

  7. You made me really stop and think about the waves for a minute and yes they do make the sand by pulverizing it. Simple yet true. Just wanted to let you know the blogs I have been posting at A Window to my World are reposts from spaces from up to 2 years ago. So my sweet dog Buster only lived a couple months after that blog. Its been 2 years almost now. Watch the dates on the blogs I know so many people are getting mixed up with so many reposting their old blogs at their new places. Anyway thanks for commenting on them I know you weren’t there to see them at spaces.. Have a wonderful weekend.. Hugs Carrie
