My Seattle

April 1, 2013 - 8:49 am

One of the things David and I most enjoy about Seattle is the beaches at extreme low tide. Having the beaches readily accessible is always a pleasure, but at low tide it’s like we get a glimpse into a whole other world.

There are strange creatures,

beautiful, ordinary forms,

and interesting juxtapositions under rippling water,

or above it.

I love the reflections of the cityscape on the sandy flats,

and the casual grandeur of the mountains.

Sea birds wander around and poke at stuff,

and so do we.

Mostly I love having a family to share it with.

The only thing missing from yesterday afternoon was Zachary. Next weekend he’ll be with us, and hopefully the weather will be kind to us. This weekend was beautiful, with a clear blue sky and a comfortable warmth. If not, the following weekend we’re heading to Florida for spring break which should be delightful.

I still count exploring the low tide beach with you two among my most favorite experiences ever, and my beach treasures all live together in a bowl where I see them every day <3
