I walked past a few things (and a few people) at Third Beach a few days back: some reminiscent, some futuristic, some just plain dreamy. There were scattered tools & toys for digging, some of them dug-in firmly after a long day's or summer's use. There was a hatted cluster of (slightly) older women engaged in a watercolor class; they were painting (what else??) the water. There were mermaids — I nearly tripped over them. You never know what you might stumble upon at the beach ... or anywhere else for that matter. Then, a bit farther along — past Peabody's, toward Crab Town — I lay down on the warm sand and actually dozed off for a bit. When I woke (with a start), there was a kayak pulled up on the beach rather close to my feet. It wasn't there before I closed my eyes. Gee, I'm glad no one tripped over me ...

p.s. As I've said before (and, no doubt, will say again): you can click on any image to enlarge.
