Ann's Valentine and a GBBC Reminder

Friend Ann (Sea Turtle Preservation Society volunteer extraordinaire) sent us this photo and email today: This morning I walked the beach and received a really neat "gift from the sea" - coquina in the shape of a heart. I couldn't believe it happened on Valentines Day!! I decided to write a little message in the sand using the heart. Whenever I find something like this on the beach, I feel like the sea is sending me a gift (as Anne Morrow Lindberg notes in her wonderful book). It makes me think I am being rewarded for removing the many not-so-nice gifts we (mankind) give to the sea.

A reminder - don't forget to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count sometime between now and end of day Monday.
