I woke up at essentially the same time I would for work. I hadn’t slept well anyway, my tummy was upset from the prior evening’s food and emotional trigger.
So, I decided to walk the beach before my final goodbyes, in an effort to let go one last time. I didn’t want to end my trip on a down note, and the ocean has no judgements, only soothing waves and bird sounds.
I crossed state line to Rhode Island to a significantly bigger beach, still only about 20 min from my brother’s house.
I walked a long time, stopping to take shoes off fairly early into my time out at the beach. It enabled toes in sand and feet in water, very grounding and soothing.
I collected one large purple clamshell and a handful of sea glass and water-polished stones. My goal is to turn them into jewelry at some point next week. My souvenir for myself.
Pics below. The horseshoe crab I tried to flip over when it didn’t on its own, but I think it was already dead. I did see a seagull near where I discovered it, so I’m guessing it was on its way to being food before I scared the seagull away.
May you have good soothing moments in nature. May you have mostly good trips. May you find a way to move past and let go of other’s judgements. May you feel good mostly and find ways to stabilize when you’ve had an emotional hit. May you know that the divine loves and supports you.
