First Beach of the year

Well, Seal beach that is.  (I walked Long Beach earlier in the year, it was a cloudy day also.)

This morning after breakfast we headed to the beach for a  walk.  Parked down by the jetty and wondered up the beach and back a couple of times.

The weather was cloudy and looked of rain but not cold at all.  However because it looked like rain the beach was pretty empty.  The diehard surfers were there and other beachcombers like us.

Lots of shore birds, curlews, sandpipers, seagulls, two pelicans and a heron flying over!  We were walking past a section we had just passed and I saw this conch in the surf.  It was beautiful, I picked it up and it was completely alive, showed Lori and then she got it further into the water so those shorebirds wouldn’t tear it apart.  Simply beautiful!
