I couldn’t wait to share this beautiful day with each of you, as it is mid November and days such as this one will be far and few between.
I took it last week as we went to walk and metal detect the local beach, this time north of us. We have only 18 miles of coastline in NH and for the most part we do have access to our shore.
We have rocky areas but here and there we have sandy beaches to walk, suntan on, even fly kites.
In this stretch we have an Ice Cream stand, boatyard and a state park or two. It is not built up with lots of businesses or homes though some of the homes along 1A are gorgeous there are still some built very modestly. They are down to earth people who enjoy the shore on a bright warm summer day or in the middle of a nor’easter. We really are hardy souls up this way.
This was November, Veterans Day and it was 70 degrees F. Wow what a gift for those who are not looking forward to many months of cold and snow, me being one of them. I will walk the beach this winter but I will bundle up and not stay out there too long, as JT doesn’t wear boats.
I will always have the camera with me but you knew that. I will try to show you another season of NH life. You have seen all my pretty spring flowers, summer beach scenes and of course the fall color we are known for but winter in NH you will just have to see .
We are here for the FOUR SEASONS after all, me on the other hand wish I headed south with my Hummingbirds.
Peace and Love
We had taken a trip to the shore to detect the beach, the waves were rough and the winds brisk.
We found a ring and change but once again, I captured on my Easy Share, a few interesting
photos on the way home.
These were Sail Boats that had been knocked over by the winds.
As we came along this curvy section of shore road I see this young man suiting up to catch the AIR. I pulled over and caught some action shots like I said I am ALWAYS READY!
I really wanted to just watch as I had never seen this done, close up in a marsh no less.
His Kite goes up in the wind with no problem.
Looks like he is also enjoying the day much differently from how we had but isn’t that what life is about, doing things you enjoy.
See what I mean about a brisk wind, man and I thought racing cars years ago was a RUSH
He and his buddy just jumped out of their cars, suited up, dragged their gear to the edge of the marsh and took off ! They must do this in a lot of places maybe safer than here .lol
We are along a very busy coastal route in NH.
Then the ride ends and thankfully on a cold and raw windy day.
In the middle of the ROADWAY!
I had my photos of this day safely on my SD Card and they were safe and would now pack up to maybe go for a beer and talk about the AIR they had Grabbed!
You just never know what you will find, during the course of a regular, plain old day .
Hope you enjoyed our day too
The beaches along New England are constantly being battered.
Storm after storm starts to change the landscape.of our shore.
Wave after wave rolls in with a fury.
We have sea walls to keep it from our homes, though we continue to build in harm’s way.
Homes are lost, lives are changed, personal items lost to the sea.
As a home is lost, plans to rebuild get underway.
This story will have updates along the way, as it is forever changing in these parts ,we call home.
Millions are spent to save the homes of those, who just had to get as close to the sea, as they could.
Permits are given out to build another in its place.
Taxes are spent on baffles, to try to keep erosion at bay.
It as you can clearly see it is not working.
Just a waste of money in my point of view, to fight a force so much stronger than man.
The more beach we have left the happier she will be lol
