There is a rhythm to the shore. This rhythm is the result of the constant ebb and flow of the tide as well as the waves. This morning I took a stroll paying particular attention to the tempo of the waves and how it effects the people, birds and items at the point where the water meets the sand.
I wandered over to explore the tide pools, a wave came in. . .
And the wave went out leaving seaweed draped over many of the rocks.
I decided to zoom and bring the seaweed closer; then another wave came in.
And went out. . .
Turning to the shoreline, a wave was retreating leaving relative calm.
I zoomed again.

The rhythm of the sea is predictable in its occurrence but the effects on the surroundings can vary from day to day. Sometimes an abundance of seaweed comes ashore and sometimes a large number of seashells. There is always something to discover at the shore.
Many happy discoveries to you.
