Wow, thanks so much!!! I'm touched and honored, so many well wishes and super comments.

With the new moon, we were experiencing extreme changes in the tides, back in January. It was also very cold, that's why I was wearing a scarf, jacket and beanie. This was captured on the beach, next to the Oceanside Pier, in Southern California.

Take care,
