Earlier this week we had 4.4 inches of snow. Before it had accumulated that much I went outside during a break in the weather. I loved how the whale vertebra on the ground outside looked. The wet, clumped snow mimics the natural texture of the inside of the bone and it just seemed to be a perfect summation of the day. Summer and beach combing for whale bones are just about over and everything looks fresh and interesting under a blanket of snow.
