We drove around in the pouring rain all day. On our way home, crossing the Knight Street Bridge, the sun came out from behind the clouds; beautiful! But we couldn't stop there, and the cameras were in the back seat, anyhow. By the time we were home, it was raining again. Looks like November in BC.
So it's about time to start cleaning out the leftovers from a busy summer. The worn-out beach shoes, the piles of shells, dying potted plants, scrap paper with snippets of information in the overflowing in box ... And the thousands of photos in my spare hard drive; they get shoved off there and forgotten. I got started on sorting and deleting tonight.
I found these three in a folder of photos from Duncan Bay, on Vancouver Island. Snail trails. Under the pebbles on the beach, the ground was a fine, grey clay, that mixed with snail slime made a whitish paint. Most of the stones were embellished.
