Boundary Bay Plan B (It may be Plan A).
Oh, it is. And if you spend too much time getting there, it may do an end run around the low-lying ridges, and you will end up wetter than you expected.
Or perhaps your goal was to catch some edible sea life, legally or not, what these fellows seem to have been doing:
On land, it's horse chestnuts, gleaming in their splitting husks. I cannot resist them either, and in October usually have one or two in my pockets.
Whenever I find a sand dollar, I marvel at how beautiful it is, and I want to find an even more beautiful one. I have a hard time discarding one favourite for another. It's like deleting multiple images of the same loved bird or plant or person. What if I delete the wrong one?
I try to limit myself. They break apart in your pocket or pack if you take too many.
You really shouldn't take them at all. The ocean needs all the calcium carbonate it can get.
