I think about him whenever I walk beaches. And, looking back over the last decade, I've been on a bunch of beaches. For example, a beach in the Lesser Antilles:
|A lovely beach, Iles des Saintes, Lesser Antilles|
A beach in Costa Rica

Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica. In the middle of the afternoon, the crab-eating raccoon was out foraging.
A very new beach, east coast of Big Island, Hawaii. This was a sandy beach when I visited in the 1980s. Since then, Kilauea Volcano has put some 30' of lava over the beach and into the bay. Already, though, pounding from the ocean and trampling from visitors, is turning it into black sand.
Rocky shore on Green Island off the south coast of Taiwan
New Zealand beach, with leaves of New Zealand flax in the foreground,
And, in Victoria, Australia, a beach at dawn ('cause that was the only time I had to walk it).
Hot or snowy, windy or humid, sandy or rocky, enjoy the outdoors!
