Sands Everywhere

Day before yesteday, we went to South Beach.  Last evening, we went to Freeman Beach.  This morning, we went to Maple Beach.  Happy to report that all beaches so far are up and running.  Adults, children, dogs are in attendance.  Water at Maple Beach this a.m. was a little spotty what with something like a minus .7 tide, but boats in abundance lying in the sand.  One beached sailboat was playing exquisite music as the breeze played with (or just played) its metal rigging.  Many excellent rocks waiting to be observed and wondered at as far as their origins.  Many tiny living conical shells in the stranded eel grass, awaiting resurrection with the returning tide.

Another sunny day in paradise.

The Friends of the Library held its meeting on Tuesday and agreed to endorse and organize the initial steps for a fundraising campaign for a new library to be created at the Julius Firehall.  It's going to be a community project, it's going to take some time, it's going to work, and it's going to be a wonderful end-project, although I can easily imagine that some of the here to there is going to be difficult.  I mean, it's Point Roberts, no?
