Negotiating a Shot

Keep your eye on the road when you drive and on the waves when you explore the ocean floor.
A star fish at low tide while a wave crashes nearby.

Low tide exposes the wonders of the ocean floor, from tide pools to sea life clinging to boulders, Low tide means I can go out further from the shore without getting wet. But, waves are still an issue, a crashing one.

I only saw one star fish last year. Yesterday I spotted my first one of the year, but about 20 feet away I also watched a wave break up on boulders. Got sprayed.

In these situations I am always looking up while having a escape route in mind. much like venturing about in the bad side of town.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
