The Beach

Gone to the beach

mermaid-seahorse-1I am driving to the beach, to paint cottages by the sea.

The Beaches Cottage

mermaid-seahorse-1So that I can breathe in the ocean air and hear the seagulls,

beach seagulls 6

mermaid-seahorse-1and the waves against the shore.


mermaid-seahorse-1I will enjoy walking along the sand dunes.

mermaid-seahorse-1Maybe I'll catch the sunset before returning home.

Winter at Old Silver Beach

mermaid-seahorse-1Capture interesting subjects to share with you.

Seagulls and Sunshine

mermaid-seahorse-1Who knows, maybe I'll listen to the Beach Boys, as I enjoy The Warmth of the Sun.

Oh do I miss the beaches of Mass. I lived right across the street from Beverly Cove and everyday after work and school, we would go walking looking for beach glass. I still have it; I wonder what I should do with this....HAVE FUN DEAREST! Anita

Great photos and enjoy your stay at the beach which is the most magical place on earth and always makes me HAPPY when I am dipping my painted toes into the ocean and watching the dolphins play.
