There is something delightful about seeing herds of cows wandering along the beach.

Sure, when I stop to think about how much manure is probably swept up during high tide, it’s suddenly much less delightful. But still, they’re adorable and particularly photogenic, so I’ve found myself taking a (uselessly) large quantity of pictures of cows on the beach.

Lest they be wasted, I am sharing the best ones here.

Don’t worry—more are surely on the way. I will update this post with more cows on the beach as I see them!
