"Don't walk behind me;
I may not lead.
Don't walk in front of me;
I may not follow.
Just walk beside me
and be my friend."
Albert Camus

Thanks to a new friend, yesterday I found myself heading north and following the signs... until I found a cozy cafe, a great cappuccino and a nice long chat.

Not wanting our hang time to end, we took "machine" trailing hers...until we found a beach she loves. And lots of fog. We found lots and lots of fog!

We walked along a nearly deserted beach...her bare feet at home in the familiar sneakered feet treading new ground. Surrounded by the natural grasses, dunes and rhythms of the sea, the only pattern I noticed was that of the old, weathered fence.

We share a love of blogging. And writing. And family. And as we walked towards these rocks, sharing stories, we found plenty more common ground and I really enjoyed learning more about her!

As we stood by the rocks, the first ship that passed by through the fog, appeared from nowhere and disappeared back to nothing. Slowly. We were glad we'd each seen it. Had we been alone we might have wondered if we were just imagining things!

The second boat we saw sped by and seemed much more real. The sparkling water somehow managed to catch the sun's light through the thick fog. I really did feel like I was in a mystical, magical place.

Coffee. A beach. A walk. And a very long talk.
All the necessary ingredients for a really nice Saturday.

Linking up with Ashley for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.
