Breaking Patterns

Good morning everyone. It is easy to get into routine patterns with any job even when one drives a schooner to work. Not that all patterns are necessarily bad as you can see in this beautiful piece of driftwood. But there is nothing I enjoy more than trying to see each trip as a new adventure…which, by the way, it is. You would think that after 30 years of poking around the coast I would have seen most everything. Not yet! Breaking patterns is not always easy or even intentional but as these few photos may suggest it is well worth the effort.

As you can see, even patterns in the rocks sometime experience abrupt changes.

We discovered yet another very cool beach for a lobster picnic at an island I have been to many times. I don’t know why I never saw this beach before.It was like I saw this little hole in the wall cove for the first time. Of course the wind was from a direction I had never experienced at this particular island which makes everything look completely different. I have bushwhacked across

this island on a few occasions and to find a trail through the woods I never knew existed was a huge surprise and quite the bonus. Will wonders never cease!

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
