Every kind of work has its specific tools. For me, a good ballpoint pen, a journal, and my laptop computer are essential for writing. As I walked the grounds at the Whiteley Center during my recent writing residency, I discovered a few tools evidently used by marine scientists.
They remind me this is a working facility.
On one of those walks, I happened upon a sweet, small cove, laced with dried bull kelp and driftwood.
But wait, what’s that silvery white round item in the middle of the photo? I suspected it wasn’t a rock or some other marine specimen, so I scrambled down the rocks for a closer look and to snatch it from its pristine perch.
