This week, I got to do another beach walk. Because of the winter’s extremely high tides, a daily walk beside the water isn’t always possible.

Yesterday, the tide was coming in so I had to pick my path carefully. In some places, the beach was barely one foot wide but most of the time, I had a space of five to six feet between the bank and the water.

On this walk, I encountered some of the huge logs that the winter storms have deposited along the beaches of the bay. They are humongous!!!! The power of nature is awe-inspiring!

I also enjoyed the beauty of a tree blooming with pale pink cherry blossoms, overhanging the sandy beach, against a background of varying shapes and shades of grey clouds. I wish I could share my photo of it with everyone.

To top this wonderful trip off, I saw the male swan that sometimes paddles along these shores. He lost his mate several years ago and I understand they do not take another, so he wends his lonesome way along the stretches of water from the harbour to the basin and back again.

I am a widow and I live a few miles outside of town so I don’t see a many people on a daily basis, but I do get to see the wonders of Mother Nature all around me. I can look out my front window and see gulls gliding on air currents, the water of the basin flat and reflective as a mirror or choppy and angry looking.

Sometimes an eagle or a heron flies by and seals play in the waves. Occasionally a sea lion or two make their way into the basin, fish for a few hours, then head back out to sea.

How marvellous that I am a part of all this. This is a portion of my DMP realized. Now I need to continue working to change my old habits for new ones so the rest of it manifests.
