Sunset Beach

Today was one of my days off and so I took the opportunity to do some chores around the house and then spent some time walking on a local beach taking photos and looking for the King Eider that has been hanging around. Although I didn't get to see the King Eider I did take some great photos:
Waves breaking


Wet pebbles on the beach



Seafoam on the beach



Sanderling



Double-Crested Cormorants




Look closely for clear stones. They are very clear pieces of Quartz that have been tossed around by the waves. If they are cut like a diamond people claim that they have just as much sparkle as a real diamond.

What a great way to spend some time, walking the beach. My nearest is about 2 to 3 hours away.
I like those crashing waves; can almost hear the roar of the surf.

I feel like you captured the feel, so I walked it with you! Lovely captures!
