Hobo Photo Of The Day

IMG_20170522_111507_603The sun was shining in a bright blue sky. It’s rays were warm but the cool ocean breeze was brisk and sent a shiver down my spine. I was walking across Scheveningen beach on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Den Haag, Netherlands.

I took in the scene and breathed in the fresh salt air. The seagulls cawed. In the distance, I could see cargo ships lurking across the horizon. I directed my eyes to the west and imagined the vastness of the ocean that lay between me and my home. The distance was immense.

I felt the crunch of shells and frosty sand below my boots. I looked down so as not to miss a single detail and stumbled upon this dried starfish laying in the sand. I don’t know how long it had been there, but I like to think that it had been waiting there just for me to find it.
