Out on the Limb

Clue - At The Beach

Saturday, April 16, 2005



This is a picture of the Sand Dragon letter shortly after I found it on a west coast beach in December 2003.

As a child growing up by the Atlantic Ocean, I had fantasized about finding the proverbial letter in a bottle. Although this letter was not in a bottle, I feel very fortunate to have found it.

It was a cold rainy day. My husband and I were the only ones on the beach. As you can see in the picture, the letter was written on school paper. Perhaps that is what prompted me to pick it up. The paper was folded into quarters, and it was so wet I had to be quite careful opening it. The letter begins:

"Two summers ago I built a dragon out of sand..."

The first line is very haunting and sad. Hope I'm mistaken.
