new day, new beach


Thanks to Lynn of BlueBrightly for identifying the pink beach pea (Lathyrus japonicus) as above and in the previous post. They’re seen quite often on the sandy beaches as well as hillsides along the road.


Meyers Beach… not far from the new location and very lovely.


The Pacific has been living up to its name. I haven’t seen it so calm and find it almost unsettling.



 The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody’s fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind. 
― Katherine Mansfield

  1. I’m so glad I sent you the right direction with that ID…your photo with the drfitwood is beautiful…Meyers Beach looks beautiful, I look forward to many more views of it…that feather, with the grass shadows lying still across it – perfect. And the quote, yes! Here’s to wild minds, wild hearts, wild places.


    • Whether you realize it, or not, you’ve inspired me quite a bit. Not only the flower IDs, but that feather was an attempt at patterns and textures like you do so well! Thanks for so much!


  2. Oh I love this quote. I know what you mean about the ocean being a little too pacific~with all that is going on in the world it feels like the ocean should be showing more agitation! Here’s to beautiful new beaches!


  3. Yes, the pink Beach Pea looks lovely. We have them all the sides of the highways here every summer. They are known as Sweet Pea. So glad someone has clear, blue skies. The smoke haze up here is so bad…unprecedented…that, along with the heat…and harmful to one’s health. We are being warned not to go outside if we don’t have to. This haze will be sticking around for another week.


    • From what I’m hearing, your skies are pretty awful. We’ve had some wildfires ongoing to the East of us, even getting close to Crater Lake, but the wind mostly blows the smoke away from us. Though come to think of it, I looked out at a very orange moon last night. The sweet pea is lovely on the hillsides to perk up the otherwise dried out grasses this time of year.
