Now Da and Poppy and I, and Phydeaux, and all those girls, are walking the beach at Shine. We found seabeans, which are super delicious. Iris says yuck, but I say More More More Please! We see killdeer, and shells, and there are lots of driftwood forts. Mimee finds special sticks and I climb on pile of sticks, poking the sand and watching everyone. I’ve got my good giggles out. I’m watching the waves and the foam. There is eelgrass here and it shows; tiny baby crab shells are scattered through the beach crumbs. We are going to eat salmonberries on the way back too. The First Nations called June time the Salmonberry Moon because they are thre best food! Foraging is fun at Shine because at my house all I can forage is old food I already didn’t want.
Now I’m riding the backpack on my Da. We are having a Fathers Day snuggle.
