I have been sick for the last few days (as you can probably tell by how rough I look and no makeup -yes, Jodi Unplugged!!) and am hardly even able to speak my throat is so sore. This morning I had to get out for some fresh air so took my cup of homemade ginger tea and my journal and camera down to the local beach. I have the pleasure of living 1 block from the ocean and while the close beaches aren't all white and sandy, they are pretty nice for reflecting on life and listening to the sound of the waves. Lots of Oyster Catchers out this morning as well. I love their red beaks.
