Back Streets, Beaches, and the Full Blood Moon
Today was another easygoing day. After a leisurely breakfast, I attended to some banking, and scheduling, and Anne did some reading. About noon we decided to go take a walk as it was another absolutely gorgeous day outside.
Our walk took us down a street we hadn't explored before and to our surprise, we happened on an old well that had been planted with flowers. It had a bench nearby, and on the wall was a plaque indicating that it was originally a well that served the village.
Our walk took us to an old bridge, built in 1837, that fords the Red River where it empties into Mounts Bay.
We decided to walk down to the water's edge and do some beach-combing. Accustomed to the snow white sand of the Florida Gulf Coast, it was a real treat to walk along a beach made up of pebbles and stones. They ranged in size from a grain of rice to softball size and larger. Oh, but the colors, and textures were just amazing! I came away with quite a collection of pebbles, a couple of interesting shells and two pieces of sea glass! Yay me!
