The Bering Sea is starting to freeze up. These slushy, sluggish waves are so peaceful! There is still seaglass to collect, birds flying! Winter is coming late these years.
I got to walk along the beach for a few hours after very quick rounds at the hospital today.
In the glowing, ever sunrise-sunset light (the sun rises at ~11am and sets ~4:30pm) was also thinking about how in just one month, we will be at the solstice and then the light will start flooding back again. I am still surprised at how not-hard winters are here, compared to what I was expecting and imagining. Especially on drop-dead gorgeous days like today.
Thick heavy, slushy waves.
There are still birds here! Surprise, surprise!
Seaglass on seaice, some of my finds today
The big dipper, made out of starfish. Poor frozen starfish. On a patch of beach ice. Winter views, cold skies, cold beach. #wishuponastarfish
The terraced layers of the beach–created from waves receding and freezing.
More thick, slushy sea. It has a still, calm feeling about it.
Frosted rocks, reminds me of dripping frosting.
More seaglass finds on the beach ice!
Found some beauties, like this seafoam green mermaid’s tear.
So many poor frozen starfish, tossed up in the last waves. :'(
This was from a week or two ago! Things have changed in the dropping temperatures!
