We have come to learn that beaches are living things. 
In the summertime, at one of our local beaches, the sand is soft and warm and goes on forever. But in winter, it all disappears!!!  It’s a little alarming the first time you experience it. 

I have no idea where it goes (…maybe south…). But I do know that we can count on it to return when the weather warms up. 

In the meantime, there is no shortage of exposed, beautiful, smooth beach stones. In fact, the beach is crowded with them!

    I just love this and I love rocks. I would have so much fun there.

      It’s a little bit addictive. Combing through all stone stones.

    Lovely shots but really, I had no idea that sand … migrates? Hibernate? I’m enthralled with this new knowledge. Amazed and enthralled

      It’s interesting isn’t it? We were shocked when we first discovered this. But, since then I’ve come to appreciate the ebb and flow of it all. Adds an extra layer to the changing seasons here.

    Now that is interesting. I love smooth stones. I have bought them by the pail for a dry creek bed before. I’m afraid I’d be checking them out and filling my pockets. πŸ™‚

      It’s not allowed. At least not by the pailful πŸ˜‰. But sometimes a stone just speaks to you, you know. And explains the parade of beach stones on the windowsill.

    That is so odd! I’ve never heard of a beach transforming like this from season to season. How interesting!!

      I’d kinda like to know where the sand goes, to tell you the truth. I suppose the winter storms/currents pull it off shore and then return it when the direction changes. But, I don’t KNOW that ….

        That’s the weird part … and really cool when you think about it!

    How very strange! Disappearing pebbles… πŸ™‚ I don’t know your part of the world, sadly.

    • JanetRimmington April 28, 2017 / 7:05 pm

      Actually it’s the sand that disappears (only to return from holiday in Spring). The disappearing sand exposes the pebbles, which are beautiful, too. But a bit tricky to walk on … 😏

        Sometimes I think I should read what I write! Sorry, Janet- I haven’t got my thinking head on today. I did know it was the sand and meant to say that it still looks lovely. πŸ™‚

        Don’t be silly. I just thought my post wasn’t clear. It is a bit of an odd phenomenon, though, don’t you think?

      • restlessjo April 28, 2017 / 7:53 pm

        Very πŸ™‚

    There are so many types of beautiful beaches.
