Color at the Beach

We think of the beach as being composed of grey/brown sand, white shells, blue water. But every beach has its colors. Where I live, on San Juan Island, I am continually amazed at the intensity of the colors I find even on a grey day. Today at South Beach it was misty and overcast, but the stormy weather had washed up all sorts of seaweed, from iridescent pink to olive-green. Crab shells, driftwood, eelgrass, rocks. An endless array of the colors in these fascinating organic forms!
