Mornings By The Bay: New Season at the Beach

Springtime for my husband and me means more visits to our little piece of heaven. Though we visit our vacation home year round, April’s warm-up marks the beginning of our personal beach season. After a dreary few months of winter cold, snow and rain, we’re excited to enjoy sunshine, our bay views, and walks by the ocean. We’d planned, saved and searched for the right opportunity for many years to fulfill our beach house dream, and we treasure every day by the water.

Here are pictures I took on the dock, just before sunset, with my Fuji digital camera. Pictures are unretouched, shown exactly as nature intended.

Christmas Lights On The Beach

There’s nothing like the sound and scent of the ocean… and a stroll on the boardwalk at Christmastime.

I love the beach any time of the year, even when it means bundling up in a coat, hat, and gloves to pay a visit. My husband and I took a ride to our favorite resort town to enjoy a view of the ocean while Christmas lights illuminated the sand. The play of colors, and the tranquil sound of waves lapping the shore, offered a welcome break from the holiday rush. I think we’ve started an annual tradition.

Do you have a favorite out-of-the-way Christmas stop?
