Day 252 and 253



A day to remember - those who lost their lives eight years ago. Could it really be that much time that has gone by?




We watched this crab (and others) for several hours. Talk about a work ethic. They did all day so that at night they have their holes and tunnels into which they can retreat. It was fascinating to observe the very painstaking process. We went back to the beach after dark and were treated to a view of lots of "ghost crabs" running around in the surf and on the sand.

On the flag: I like those two stars that are highlighted by themselves. I think our flag is gloriously beautiful. Lovely unfurled shot of Old Glory.

The crab: The sand glistens like diamonds! Nice capture of light. Nice array of colors that make me want to reach out and grab a handful of sand.

I always thought crabs were ugly. But they make some great eating when cooked fresh from the water. :D

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your nice comments.
