This morning, the tide was low and the air was mild and still. It was the perfect time of day for Jantje, the littlest one and I to get outside and collect driftwood for Jantje's sculptures.
Of course, we also picked up a few rocks and seashells along the way as we searched for signs of life at the water's edge.
There's something special about the seashore in late fall. The trees are gray and the seagrass is brown, yet bits of crimson and emerald stand out amongst the neutral colours.
And although we know the snow and ice - not long away - will soon turn the colours to white, we will still wander near the sea and hear the lapping of the waves, because the ocean will never freeze...
