Monday Morning Beach Report
The ocean was brushed with silver this morning. Surfers and pelicans amazed each other with their feats of grace and skill.
As an added bonus, the local fire department water rescue squad was out drilling. With bright red shirts over their wetsuits and matching red helmets, they divided into drowning victims and rescuers. When the victims got quite far out beyond the huge waves and began waving their arms, the rescuers skipped into the surf with flippers in one hand and a life belt on a rope in the other. Once they were knee deep in the water, they put on their flippers and stroked like crazy to the victims who were then belted and towed to safety. It was heartening to know these guys practice these skills.
And meanwhile, some of those clouds looked like they might be making big plans.
Blessings to all those in the east coast blizzard.
