A woman and her dog

I stopped by the ocean yesterday. Parked the car on the shoulder and went down to the beach. It was low tide, and the rocks were exposed.

Pelicans were clustered like a pack of yelping delinquents, on one big rock out in the water.

A pure white egret waded in the tidepools, searching for something to spear.

While I watched, a woman  came down the beach with a little black and white dog. She walked among the algae-covered rocks, and took a picture or two with her phone camera, while the dog scampered up and down the sand.

She waded a few steps into the water. She wore a long black cotton dress, and as the waves washed round her feet it soaked her up to the thighs. She looked out at the blue water and you could tell - she just didn't care.

It's nice she was enjoying that beautiful moment.

What kind of cares could one have in such beautiful surroundings?

I could use some of that "just didn't care" mojo.
