Bunny basket washes ashore

Sand snow men are common in December,

But I'd never seen a bunny basket until today.

The intricate lattice weave
added a special holiday touch
Sea grape leaves served as ears -- although a little too short -- and red algae as straw.  The eyes were of shells and whiskers of grass stems.  A teenager approached me while taking the photograph: "Did you build it?" he wanted to know, immediately followed by "--Hey, I know you."  It was Cody from the old neighborhood.  On the way back, some preschool kids had knocked a door in the basket, but the bunnies were still intact.

That's good because tomorrow's the big day.
