What a fun challenge Leya has presented for us this week! I am currently in Long Beach, WA – one of my favorite “spots” to enjoy nature.
Watching this beautiful mature Black-bellied Plover stride across the sands was a thrill to behold!
At the grassy dune edge of the beach, all manner of life leaves signs of existence. Spots of bird and mouse footprints, dots of sand being tunneled up and falling in on itself. So many patterns of unseen life.
In four plus years walking this beach, I’ve encountered only two stranded starfish. Notice the sweet daisy flower pattern in the middle. Spots and dots abound in our natural world.
Little daisy flowers flourish in the wet grasses here. Sometimes pure white, and often shades of pink to lilac, they are a cheerful spot of light on overcast days.
I will close with spots and dots of light dappling on the surface of Crescent Lake, Oregon.
Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate onward. Please mask-up and stay safe.🐾
