Just a few more things I took pictures of at the beach. The first two are shots of seaweed washed ashore and drying out in the sand.
As I was walking across the rocks that lead down to one side of the beach I happened to look down and see this cat nestled between the rocks. That was a big surprise to me. I've never seen a cat at the beach. Maybe it knew how many birds hung out there and was tired from trying to catch one. :-) Then again, maybe like a lot of people, it just enjoyed the sea breezes and the warm sun.
And these are my shoe prints in the sand which I thought made for an interesting shot. It reminded me of my favorite poem which I posted below the photo.
Footprints In The Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”
The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you.”
