It was a bit of a tough decision between cuddling the pups on the couch…
…and grabbing my backpack to explore nature in the rain.
The call of Clarke Head and the beach won out. I arrived about 45 minutes before low tide.
The rain had stopped as soon as I arrived on the beach and my solitary walk was just what I needed after socializing over the holidays. Breathing in fresh sea air, watching the light change and listening to the waves was so therapeutic.
Walking alone is always best when I want to focus on practicing my contemplative photography. I discovered a treasure trove today:
The blue sky appeared as I reached the ancient arch…
…and the sun tried to push through the clouds providing an amazing backdrop for Clarke Head.
On the way back I picked up 8.5 lbs of trash, leaving my favourite beach just a little cleaner for the start of 2023.
I hope the first full day of the new year has set the tone for what’s in store for 2023. I feel I have made a great start. Best wishes for good health and happiness, Anna
