A Day at the Beach (Nature)

Challenge #102 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Do you have happy childhood memories of spending days at the beach, of sun, sand and surf? Show us interesting examples of nature by the sea. This is a nature challenge, so think rockpools, seaweed, shells, wading birds, footprints in the sand, driftwood, breaking waves, fishing, children building sand castles, etc.... Please NO scantily-clad men or women, and NO slow-speed cotton candy shots of waves on rocky shores. This is not a realistic, natural view of the surf. Also, NO jet-skis, kite-surfing or similar frenetic activity which takes away the focus from the beach. Tell us the location of your beach. Macro and close-ups welcome. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM.
