Winter Scenes from Auke Rec Area
There are several places we go when the sun is out to take full advantage of the clear skies and radiant heat from the sun. One of those places is Auke Rec Area. Its a lovely rocky/sandy beach which faces mostly south. If the wind gets really wicked, there's a pathway through the trees you can take. Mostly we walk on the beach, looking for interesting shells, pieces of sea glass, starfish and other marine life.
Here a small stream flows towards the waters edge, ice sickles forming on the leaves of a long ago expired plant.
Icy fingers reaching for the warmth of the cool unfrozen water.
