Where sea shells and driftwood are art: my Washington Holiday

I just got back from a five day trip to the Washington Coast. We stayed in a place called the 'tree fort' outside of Ocean Shores.  It was a beautiful, barren, lonely beach this time of year.   I think living on the sea would change a lot about a person: your art, clothes, hair style, past times, relationships and probably even your theology.  These are the kinds of ideas that fill my mind when my toes sink into the cool sand, my hair is whipped out of my pony tail and I can't make out the sky from the sea.
