Wave washed over. Left heart impression

by jl333 on March 25, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is one of those times, when I wish I had my iPad with me to take a picture...because the likely hood of this happening again, is slim to none. Yesterday, as I Was walking on the beach, a wave washed over some sporadic small rocks that were in the sand. When the water left, it left , I kid you not, a heart shape impression around the rock!
