Salty Sea, Salty Snacks

Salty waves wash the sandy shore.

"You will trail across the rocks
and wash them with your salt,
you will curl between sand-hills
you will thunder along the cliff
break retreat get fresh strength
gather and pour weight upon the beach."
~ Hilda Doolittle (1886-1961), U.S. poet. "Sea Gods."
Everything tends to be salty near the ocean and simply by standing on the beach one can taste the salty spray and feel the salt deposited on skin and hair. I never get tired of watching the tide roll in with the low waves and frothy foam.

"Salt is born of the purest of parents: the sun and the sea." ~ Pythagoras (580 BC - 500 BC)
My folks love peanuts, especially Virginia grown peanuts. Personally, I prefer cashews or almonds, especially those roasted and coated with salt, cinnamon and sugar. Yum. Salt brings out other flavors; a touch on an apple makes it more sweet. Come to think of it, I have a lot of pumpkin seeds from those fairytale pumpkins we grew last summer... perhaps a little heat, a little salt....

The theme for Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt this week is "salty". You can go here to "Grab the Scavenger Hunt code" and here to join the blogroll. This really cute logo is available there as well. The link to other participants is in my blogroll on the sidebar.
