A low tide, leaves mossy green slippery algae exposed, glowing vibrantly under an afternoon sun. Small puddles keep small marine life safe until the tidal waters reclaim the beach once again. Drifting winter clouds constantly change like designs against the deep blue winter sky. Boats pass by in the distance on the calm ocean waters, as Seagulls hang out and Bald Eagles fly by, on a beautiful sunny winter day! : )
