One day you wash up on the beach, wet and naked. Another day you wash back out. In between, the scenery changes constantly.

It's Greening at the Beach
The last week's clear skies and warm weather has caused an amazing acceleration of Spring since our last outing. We had a spring style thunderstorm last night around 4 AM, and today has been showery, although our beach walk was dry (except for Skye's feet). You can see the dune grasses and trees starting to blush a fresh green here.
As I said earlier in the post on Lyme disease, we had her to the vet for a check up, her annual shots, and some blood work to see if the arthritis medicine was having any negative effects. So far, so good, but the results for the blood work aren't back yet. However, she didn't seem to stressed out about it all.
The tide was near a normal low and falling, and lots of shell hash was exposed. We found some 25 sharks teeth, of which this quarter sized Snaggletooth, seen in situ, was the largest.
Just a pretty picture from up the beach, showing the trees greening. No sign of swans or eagles or ospreys (I did see both eagles and ospreys at work yesterday), but there was still a small flock of Bufflehead ducks offshore.
