Patterns in the sand

Cool sand patterns

My husband and I decided to head to the beach this weekend since the weather in Los Angeles was amazing. We ended up at La Piedra beach north of Malibu because we couldn’t find parking at our favorite beach El Matador. There may be some parking tricks along the PCH, but everywhere we looked there were “no parking” signs.

So we drove up to the next beach, which turned out to be La Piedra. Also, a beautiful beach, but it doesn’t have the awesome rock formations like El Matador. Walking along we came across some really cool patterns the waves left in the sand. Maybe it’s a common phenomenon, but in all the times I’ve been to the beach I’ve never noticed this before.

It looks like the patterns are created from waves dragging small rocks, shells and kelp back into the sea. Or the patterns could be just from the water or possibly a combination of all of the above. Either way it looked really cool, like the ocean was designing its own special form of modern art. But since the designs aren’t for sale, I settled for a photo of one. Actually, I took lots of photos, but the one posted here is my favorite. Enjoy!
