we went to the beach the other day. with mormor and morfar (grandma and grandpa in danish). it was crazy wonderful. as it usually is. i cannot think of anything that can just clear my mind and brain like an hour or two at the beach. especially this time of year. as much as i like summer days at the beach, these israeli winter days, where the sun is strong enough to warm you, but still leaves the air fresh and clear, these days i think i like a little bit more. the high sea, the amazing colors, the white foam, the air, the light...sigh... it's true love.
a couple of weeks back we went right after a little storm. and we found these huge bones. the kids loved it and obviously had to bring them home. you know, it's not everyday you find dinosaur bones at your local beach. so we took them home. and i actually think they are gorgeous, because they have been in the sea for so long. they are completely whitewashed and smooth, and their shapes are interesting. but what is it? anyone out there in blog world who knows about bones? is it from an animal in the sea? a dead cow? (just, please, please don't tell me it's human...). beside that joint looking thing in J's hand, we also found these two long bones. first is around 30 cm, second around 40 cm.
and then there is this one. it has a very strange shape, but it really does feel like a bone. what could that be?
and as you see, the weather still makes it hard to believe it's soon christmas, but i cannot say we don't enjoy the nice and warm weather. what are you enjoying these days?
