Another day at the beach (Part II)

Just a taste of the mile-long arc of the beach, bordering on the Atlantic Ocean. (May 13 1:04 p.m.)

Last Saturday, for sake of mental health, I left the house.  It didn’t matter much where I went.  I landed in Crescent Beach that day, and twice returned.  Each time presented the opportunity to think about where things stand in life… and take newer, better photos.  Long story short, I still have some sand in my shoes.

(May 13 1:37 p.m.)

The conditions of the sky turned the color of the visible sun a little bluish.  It wasn’t cold, but an expression, “cold sun” came to mind. Continue reading Another day at the beach (Part II)

Another day at the beach (Part I)

Anjon’s fountain is up and running (some hours). (May 13 12:31 p.m.)

I needed to get away from the house.  Being housebound does not a healthy mind make.  The destination, I guess, didn’t matter considering I geared for the library but wound up at the beach, and didn’t mind.  Twice in three days… I did mind that.  It was a day of playing random music with the iPhone… and again wondering why the heck Bob Dylan made “Ring Them Bells”.

(May 13 12:15 p.m.)

I noticed the purple flowers are (or were) in style— as seen outside some businesses and neighborhoods, on the way to the beach, and even in our own town.  The above appear to be garden phlox… but I’m not sure.

Dandelions were everywhere near the parking lot.

The leaves, they are a-changin’

As suspected, the leaves have already changed color in Deering Oaks park.

All over the state (and country), of course.  Approaching one month into the season, plenty of pine cones are still up (or were), as you can see:

A day at Crescent Beach (Part II)

Before I continue, I probably should say a little something about the delay of posting today: I made a promise to get the photos up soon.  And I had most of them up in the library already.  I had the tab open, in an early stage of developing the post… I revisited a few things of last year…of other blogs… and I was cut off. The limited data plan broke my promise. …Or forced me to stretch the meaning of the word ‘soon.’  Either way, I’m here now.  At least there are 31 days in May.

…Now. Back to the 14th.

(May 14 3:43 p.m.)

I took another little walk on the beach…

Beach sands. (May 14 3:39 p.m.)

In the middle of May, I took the opportunity to snap photos of Crescent Beach state park. My mother visits the park with some frequency during warmer times of the year, and she’d asked me a few times before to come with. It was a good idea— the sights, the air, the walks that are, say longer than one would think.
