It was not raining and I was done with work for the day. So, I ran home grabbed the boat, family and headed for the harbor. As we headed out in the boat my daughter only made one request before falling asleep, find her a beach to explore. We watched dolphins playing in the surf, sea otters feeding and eagles soaring in the skies, but a quiet beach was all I was searching for. Finally, we pulled up on a small beach with no one around. We climbed off the boat and explored. While we were looking at all the wildflowers. I found a fern that was just starting to open. Original photo taken on June 24th, 2017.
