more seaweed


please click on photo to see water tower details



I love this photo because it has lots of clues about what goes on at robert moses beach. I'm not crazy about cars driving on this beach, but the tread marks form an interesting design. see the pencil/water tower in the background? the best part, other than the ocean, is how people can take a walk along the shoreline. personally I believe walking on a beach is good for the soul.

this is a part of my world. to share a part of yours or just see more of others, please go here, thanks to klaus, sandy, ivar, wren, fishing guy and louise.

Very nice picture inspite of the tire tracks.
I love walking on the beach. I wish it was closer.
What is that tall structure in the left distance?

Lily Hydrangea said...

Thanks for asking James,that is the water tower. It is a beautiful structure that I referred to as the pencil as a child.

I hate tyre tracks on the beach. They have no idea the damage they do. Grrrrr! I'm all for a gentle walk, well as gentle as I can be ranting away.

Very Long Island - big, beautiful beaches with tire tracks. Lovely photo.

it is so hard to remember that it is actually summer for you all there now..while it has been a little cool here of late!

Arija said...

Nice shot. Yes, a walk along the seashore definitely is a restorative for the soul.

Daryl said...

I am 99% sure the tread marks are from the wheels of the security and/or clean up detail ..

Lovely world -- nice and peaceful-looking. I love this shot of the beach. You're right. While, I, too, am not crazy about the cars on the beach, the tire patterns do look interesting.

Interesting—and slightly disturbing. I love the beach (and this particular one), and believe it should be left to those of us who are on foot (or fin). I realize these tire tracks were probably left by an "official" vehicle—please tell me the rest of us aren't allowed to drive on the beach now! (And thanks for introducing me to another interesting meme.)

Walking on a beach sounds great. Driving, not so much. Nice photo of the scene.

Pietro said...

Very interesting image, Lily!!

Walking on the beach is not only good for the soul, it's good for the beach. Makes the beach feel needed.
