This Friday finds me lingering over memories of our Gather retreat. I held on to this last post in an effort to hold this experience close to me just a little longer. On our last day, after the Petals and Pop shopping experience, a group of us went to the pier at Seal Beach. Now I grew up in the area so Seal Beach holds dear memories of my childhood and it was great to revisit this place as an adult. The beach itself is always teaming with people enjoying the water, waves, sand, and seagulls. The pier also offers a fun perspective,
but most interesting to me this time was the view under the pier. So much going on there.
There were bits of a fence with rusted wire barely holding it together, as well as some shadow play
I quickly discovered that the pier’s underbelly is home to some of the bird life in the area
Families have been raised here
Surfers also use the place to store their towels while out riding the waves
It was grand to be a part of the life force coursing through the pilings
The other day I pulled out the shoes I had on that day and some sand fell out.
It made me smile and so here I am on Friday, thinking about Gather once more.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll be linking up with Kim’s Friday Finds today. Hope you have a moment to stop by.
