Today the weather was perfect – sunny and warm – therefore I stayed inside. I didn't want to wake up my body, which is still hibernating and not used to sunshine. But I was happy about the light. I photographed some remains of sea creatures, tiny shells, fish bones (including two flatfish jaws) and amber. I collected this tiny objects on the shores of the Baltic Sea and they may be very tiny pieces but they are perfect reminder of really big fun!
I can't lay on a beach or walk on sand without searching. I'm obsessed with searching. When we spent a holiday on Usedom (Germany), I couldn't stop searching for amber. It was like I was infected with a acute form of "gold rush". After three weeks I had a complete brown neck and back, but my face and front was still white as a bed sheet. Only my family had complete red heads every day, because they were constantly angry about me and my behavior. I was all day long crawling on my knees through the dirtiest parts of the beach, where the amber get stuck in the seaweed. I really became more foul-smelling everyday - I'm sure, a mermaid doesn't smell different. That is what I call a holiday after my taste! I was never bored, I had all the time some success, talked to other mad people like me.
