Miracles....at the beach

I had the most miraculous beach walk ever the other day. My cousin and I had just arrived at the Oregon Coast the night before, and on this morning we woke up and walked across the street to the beach, where we discovered hundreds of starfish clinging to the rocks, they were everywhere! It was a low tide, and so the big rocks which are typically underwater were exposed, so we were really lucky to see this. The starfish were orange and all shades of purple, every cluster was unique since they would form together so differently every time. Next we saw the surfers, I guess it's not too cold to surf up here as long as you have a wetsuit. Walking back we discovered that the rock artist had been here, stacking rocks and making rock art. As it turned out, he'd left a message on a rock, and we were the ones who found it! I don't have it with me but will write more when I have it with me. Anyway, the beach is full of miracles, every single time, every single place, it never ceases to amaze me what magic the ocean holds. I am definitely moving back to the beach as soon as possible. I feel that this is the place that I belong.
