At the end of yesterday’s coastal adventure, first visiting the new Interpretive Center at Ano Nuevo, then using Mr. Mowry’s book
It was foggy to the point of drizzling, so I left my camera in the car. When I saw this unusual piece of Ephemeral Beach Art
I decided I had to capture it before it disappeared.
So, when we returned to the car, despite being dog tired, I grabbed my camera and jogged back to get a few shots. I’m not sure if the two driftwood sticks, formed into a cross, indicate Grammy is no longer with us, but I salute the love these anonymous grandchildren must have for her. It’s a nice variance from the typical heart in the sand that celebrates a young couple’s misty love. Young love may fade as fast as the tide changes, but Grammy love is something you’ll carry with you forever. Enjoy. John
