Open Eyes




Every year between May and July these little black rocks appear underwater on the shoreline of Waimea Bay.


These little rocks used to drive me bonkers! If you step on a sharp one while entering the water, it can really hurt.


If you get stuck in a little wave these tumbling little black rocks can really pack a wallop.


I always considered them a pain in the keester till one day I found this one beautiful shell. Its the shell on the far right of the 5 shell picture =0D









The discovery of this one shell got me to swimming the shoreline checking out these little black rocks...



Fast forward a couple years...








I have now found 3 jars just this size of beautiful shells found right on the shoreline in among these little black rocks. Needless to say, my opinion of these little black rocks has changed drastically.





There is amazing beauty to be found among the constant irritations we call life...




May my eyes be open to finding that beauty in All places.

How very very interesting. Just shows how easily you can miss something beautiful when you don't look for it. But I'm still wondering about the black rocks.
