I promised myself I would get on my bike and ride to my beach, rain or shine yesterday and I'm glad I did.
Peanut opted to stay in bed after his morning walk. Lazy!

The sky was so nice and the beach practically empty.

Just a jogger here and there.

I started walking south for a change since for some reason I usually walk northwards. I came across a sea turtle nest. They are endangered and protected under the law so I guess there's a 'society' of some kind(probably one I used to be a member of) who puts up the orange tape.

The tree hugger in me was delighted to read the words fines and imprisonment in the warning sign.

For a while, I wasn't finding any shark teeth. The tide was too high for me to really find the good stuff but I did manage to find a few small ones and what looks like a piece of vertebrae. I also picked up those matching shells. I didn't find them like that, they were stuck together- probably left over from a bird's meal.

I only stayed for an hour because it was so hotdamn! After rinsing my legs, I packed up all my stuff, and found a couple more near my bag. That shell looks like someone decided to paint the sunrise on it, doesn't it?

One last look and I rode home.

Damn I love that beach.

Such a beautiful area you live in! I love the photos.

Glad - very glad - to see the sea turtle protection sign. One of the projects I worked on in Sri Lanka involved sea turtles - it was totally awesome.

Peanut is looking especially cute, cuddled into bed as he is!

He was still like that when I got home.

Wow! Such a wonder you have and only a bike ride away.

Damn, I love that beach, too. You have no idea how much I yearn to be there when I read your posts and see your pictures. The beach here is soooo cold, visually beautiful but uninhabitable. We suits can only do so much, and I object to them in principle, kind of.

Peanut is one smart doggie.

I'm jealous.

I wish I lived really close to a beach.

Wow, nice beach, plus just a ride away! But I don't know how to ride bike... :P

I envy Peanut...I wish I can do that for one whole

Have I ever mentioned how jealous I am of you and that beach? I only get to the beach about once per year, and I have to fly to get there.

Peanut is entirely too adorable. :D

That peanut is so gorgeous. He makes my heart feel all soft and fluffy.

And the beach. How I long for it.

I was just reading about how sea turtles make their nests--bizarre connection. It's very interesting and beautiful. I'm happy to see the nests are protected!
