magical beach

Today's desire to find magic in the ordinary shoreline is a magical place of many moods, its shape and surface in constant flux, a creation of sand and waves, high and low tides, and the daily winds that smooth and caress the entire beach. It is a wonderful location for pictures, where the lower angles of the sun bring to life the diverse formations that often last no more than a day.
