Tracks in the Dawn 2013
Dawn is chilly these days as winds whoosh down from the north. Sunrises are still beautiful and the waves greet my morning walks with happiness, but there’s more to the beach than sunrises and the sea. Truly. For there are creatures about every night. They Scurry across dunes, fighting on the shoreline, chase prey or amble down to the sea after birth. Turtles crawl. Birds chase crabs and mollusks. Deer prance. Occasionally I’ll find a spot where a skirmish occurred, marked only by footprints and crevasses and sweeps from fur or feather. The sand tells countless stories. We just have to pay attention.
