Patterns of Water and Sand

It was warm enough for a walk on the beach today. It seemed strange to have such warm weather in November, and also strange to walk just one dog, because up until Monday night, we had two dogs. Now we are all trying to distract and amuse our remaining dog, who has lost her constant companion. In the wet sand were marks made by people, dogs, and birds. But right at the water's edge, the shallow waves were making beautiful patterns in the sand, patterns that appear, vanish, and then repeat, seeming to be constantly changing but yet always the same.
