Reminders of Nature.

Living in the mountains, I tend to associate "nature" with forests, trees, and greenery. This past week spending a few days at the beach I was reminded how diverse the natural world is - the glittery brilliant blue of the ocean, spiky green palm fronds, and wispy golden shrubbery covering the dunes - all playing their part in the coloring of the Earth. It was a lovely reminder brought about by a simple change of scenery.
