All around, the drama of survival
Usually, this area is under water during our beach walks. When not, it is full of sea life, sea urchins, crabs, star fish, and other small marine life, clinging for life on the rocks, waiting for the next wave to wash them ashore.
I'm not sure you can see much in this picture, though.
But, life is fragile, we are reminded.
Yesterday, as we stopped on I5 for a rest stop at the Umpqua Natural History Museum, we experienced feeding time for snakes. Little tiny white and black mice, scampering around, trying to escape the cage and their ultimate demise became a good moment to ponder the cycle of life, the drama of survival among living things.
