Sea Weather and Salt Water

Guess where I’ve been?

Down a dirt path to the water’s edge
where the tide comes in and water caresses rock
where grown men roll up their pants and look for sea urchins
and why do I think this sign is so funny? What’s funny about it? Something…


I was somewhere with cold water and cold air, and the safest place for picture taking was on rock. The sand was being washed in a cold salt bath and periodically the sea would vomit up sea weed.
Of course, even when you’re firm on a rock, the tide coming in can be scary
and I may have shrieked like a little girl when the waves crashed around me.
But in the end I was safe, just a little windblown.
“Come let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods” -Psalm 95:1, 3
