Good: Yesterday and this morning on my beach walk I’ve found roses — long-stemmed roses — strewn on the shore. I understand there was a cruise ship that passed by over the weekend and passengers tossed roses into the water. I’ve gathered them up, rinsed them off and put them in a bucket with cut-flower food to see if I can revive them. But even if not, it’s been fun to start the day walking a rose-petal bedecked beach.
Bad: On this morning’s beach walk I encountered Tony Amos of the Animal Rehabilitation Keep. With the help of a bucket loader he was investigating the remains of a bottlenose dolphin that the low tide had revealed. A sad sight. The creature had apparently been in the water for quite some time. Its color had been so bleached out that it almost blended in with the sand.
Ugly: That poor dolphin was completely entangled in some netting. No doubt this will be an entry in Tony Amos’s Museum of Entanglement.
