Five Things...

Pretty soon I'm going to have to change the name of my blog from "High Desert Home" to "In Which She Goes to the Beach" or something. :-) But right now we're having amazing weather-- in the low 60's and no wind-- so we're taking advantage of the lovely days while they're here.

And I suppose if you're going to the beach every day, you may as well take pictures. Here are a few things I noticed and enjoyed during today's late afternoon visit. And just as nice as the things we saw was the fresh, clean seaside air. It is really invigorating, and, like I told Mom, it almost seems healing. Mom and I walked down the beach for awhile, then hung around til the sun disappeared behind the ocean.

Interesting patterns in the sand. If this wasn't a beach post, and I didn't tell you that was sand, would you know?

The light green color of the waves in the sunlight. This beach is my favorite, partly because of the color of the water.

Mom again, in her beach hat again, sitting on a log, with a lighthouse on her head. :-) (I do wish I would have shifted my position so that the lighthouse was further left, but I was too quickly snapping away.)

The grass and sand in the evening sun.

The lighthouse at dusk, taken on our way home. We drive right past the lighthouse when we go to the beach. I thought this was lovely.
