I hope everyone is having a nice start to July 2022.
Earlier this weekend I shared the July Priorhouse Interview with author Robbie Cheadle – Here–
That is the last interview for a little while because for the rest of July I am posting “a little lighter” – and plan on digging into the Priorhouse archives – the goal is to share some older photos in a fresh way.
This is day one of “digging in the archives”
Today’s theme is beautiful beaches and treasures.
1) One of my favorite beaches: Destin, FL
Emerald green water in Destin
2) Next is a beachcomber looking for treasures
3) Sand Dune Vitality
Sea Plants – like grasses and oats – need to be treasured for what they contribute to the ecosystem. These plants play an integral role in sand dune stabilization and they have protected status in Florida and along the Atlantic coast. In some places you can see workers planting little seedlings in the dunes – they drive by on a little beach cart and drop them as they are going along.
4) Flowers for a Loved One
One afternoon we saw a bouquet of flowers washed up on the shore. I assumed that someone tossed them into the ocean in honor of a loved one. It was a reflective time because the flowers looked so interesting as the waves pulled back. I wondered why they were there and if it was for a loved one? This reminded me to treasure and appreciate those we love because we never know when their number will be up (a phrase my dad often used as he said it was one’s time to die).
5) Creating Art on the Beach
Even if this art piece is not a masterpiece (or treasure) – some artistic endeavors are about the process! Feeling the sand on your legs, sun on your back, and canvas resting on the thighs – for a beach lover – this can allow creativity to ebb and flow (maybe like the waves).
