Gray on the Olympic Penninsula.
Here, the sea and the sky fold into each other in layers of gray. Gray everywhere. Gray sea, gray sky, gray birds, gray sand cliffs, gray sand dollars, gray foam in the ocean, gray shadows.
You might think the image below features a gray starfish. If you do, you are wrong. This is me and my reflection performing fancy tricks in the sand.
Joyce was also mesmerized by the gray. And with the sand. After only two minutes of walking in it, she planted herself face first and started her swim. We thought all that sand in her eyes was going to give rise to a crying bout, but quite the contrary - Joyce found all that sand everywhere thrilling.
And Xavier took the opportunity to perform circus tricks in the grayness.
