Wind in hair
Riding in our boat
Following the channel
To a quiet beach
Emerald green waters
Warm as a winter’s bath
Beach to ourselves
Walking hand in hand
Creating solitary footprints
In the wet sand
Surf lapping at the edge
Shells rolling back and forth
Glimmering in the sunlight
Teasing us into a game of
“Catch me if you can”
Bending and scooping
Retrieving gifts from the sea
Puffy clouds adorn the blue skies
Terns gracefully, silently soar

lovely words and I so want to be where those photos were taken
Thank you for your comment. Yes, no one is disappointed with this place. We take all of our visitors here and they go home with …serenity.
I so understand why
Lovely !!!!!!! I am jealous. I want to go there!!! Love, Julie
Thanks, Julie.With our snow birds gone, the waterways and beaches are less crowded. We were really lucky that day…having it all to ourselves.
Lovely words, amazing pictures. I want to go :).
Thank you for your comments. What is so great about this place is that you can only get to it by boat. So, let’s go! I love your poetry…invokes insight and emotion.
Beautiful poetry to go with beautiful photos! 🙂 All the photos compliment each other but that second one … wow!!!! 🙂

Thank you Sumithra for your comment. I was out of town when your comment came and it slipped by me. I look forward to reading your blog.
What an amazing place! Your words enhance the feel of the photos! Thank you Lynne.
Thank you Madhu. I love summer and I love this special beach. We were there yesterday but we didn’t have it to ourselves; however, the shelling was lucrative.
