adventures in nature

diamonds on the coast

Sunday was a foggy day on the coast, a nice respite after an extremely hot Saturday. The winds were still and a mist hung in the air, enough to cover the ground and prompt me activate my windshield wipers as I drove on my little escape. Every plant seemed to be taking a huge breath in with this welcome moisture, and there was a glow coming from the landscape as I wandered the coast line – me taking my own big breaths and letting the salty ocean air take away the thoughts and cares that I didn’t need to carry at that moment.

The lupine put on a show, with diamond-like beads of water decorating each leaf as if set there by some sort of earth spirit jeweler.
