early morning beach walk



























every year as summer approaches, I think of how I'll bring my son to the beach and we'll go for a walk before we start our day. this year I finally did it. this is what the beach looked like when we first got there. the clouds were moving towards the east as we followed. on the way back we faced blue skies as illustrated by the photo below. by this time you can see the lifeguards just starting their day .
to share a part of your world or just see more of others, please go to "that's my world tuesday". thanks to klaus for hosting with his team of helpers, sandy, wren, fishing guy and sylvia.

The first shot is absolutely amazing! Beautiful mornig.

What a gorgeously deserted beach you have shown us. It does not look as though it has any impact from that disastrous BP oil spill. It is simply too too far north regardless of the prevailing currents.

The flags in the second image are incredibly colourful and indicate a bit of a wind being whipped up.

Carol said...

Beautiful! Your photos are so inviting they make me long to be at the beach. The colorful flags in the second shot really pop.

There's something very retro about Long Island.

Lily, we've been to Robert Moses so often. We go out early to parking field 5. Isn't it wonderful? We should meet out there some day... I posted for My World too. :)

Such dramatic clouds in the first shot.

Marlene said...

Your beach in the first picture looks like our beach, which I just returned home from. The second picture is different in that we do not have lifeguards, which is a shame.

Jenn said...

Wow! The dramatic clouds sure captured the mood of that gorgeous peaceful beach.

Lois said...

Beautiful pictures! Morning is my favorite time of day on the beach.

Sylvia K said...

Absolutely gorgeous captures, Lily! What a wonderful, beautiful way to start the day! Love the deserted beach in the first shot and the second one is so colorful! I love them both! The beach is one of the very best places to start the day! Have a lovely week!

I never get tired of seeing your beaches. They're fantastic!

That's when the beach is best—when you have it all to yourself! Wonderful shots, Lily.

Bibi said...

So pretty, Lily...I envy you this walk.

Beautiful, Lily! The beach is always so peaceful early in the morning before the crowds arrive.

Fred Miller said...

Wish I had been there.

Janie said...

It's great to be out walking on the beach before the lifeguards arrive. The first shot is beautiful.

Excellent early morning photo. I was at the beach Sunday afternoon...enjoyable...but quite crowded and in opposition to your serene shot.

Lawstude said...

As an ex-Long Islander (I grew up there) your photo makes me homesick for Jones Beach. Thanks!
