One of my favorite things to do at the ocean is to walk along the shore - but not the smooth beachy areas that most people prefer.
Don't get me wrong - I love the smooth beaches along the water's edge - but there are usually way too many people around.
Walking along the rockier, more untamed areas, one can find treasure - nature's gifts that are undisturbed as most people don't like the rocks, seaweed, or broken and crushed shells.
The outgoing tide left little tunnels in the sand - each little stream finding it own direction and creating these beautiful curves.
The camera cannot do justice to all the details that were there.
If it wasn't for the rocks and the little patches of seaweed, the water would have ran in a straight line right down to the ocean's edge, and this little treasure would not have been created.
And if there had been people walking around this area - one footstep would have obliterated it.
Glad I was able to catch it before the tide came back in and erased it forever.
