PIC OF THE WEEK: 07/10/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Hopewell, VA • Harrison Point
Notes: This is a species that always reminds me of fun filled hot summer days at the beach, both by sight and by sound. I would get up very early, before the rest of the house stirred, pack a cup of coffee and a folding chair, and then walk the sandy pathway to the edge of the surf. I’d set down the chair and sip my coffee, waiting for the first signs of light to appear. A warm glow of deep amber would at the horizon. The light would dance across the top of the waves as they rolled inward toward the beach. Within minutes the light would intensify and change to yellow-orange. Finally the first light would break the plane of the sky over the distant ocean and brighten the surrounding scenery. Now the dunes and sea oats would appear out of the dark and begin to sway in the soft morning breeze. The gulls and pelicans would begin to move around. The sound of the waves would accompany their calls. The sky then turned from a rainbow of oranges and gold to a cool blue. Overhead, fair weather clouds would slowly float past, heading out to sea. An hour or so would pass having the beach, and seemingly the earth, all to myself. Eventually other folks would appear down the beach and I would turn my thoughts to a stroll at a nearby refuge or local park before the high heat of the day set in.
