we have set up our beach cabana
near the entrance to the beach.
it was easier with the trolley.
And so, as always, our welcoming faces invite conversation.
of the many, an elderly New Zealander stopped to chat,
dripping wet, fit and hearty, with her boogie board.
she said the waves were wild yesterday,
and today, mild.
the energy of the oceans
is changing quickly,
more quickly within my lifetime.
what a mess we have made
of our beautiful planet!
