October Beach


''October had tremendous possibility.
The summer's oppressive heat was a distant memory,
and the golden leaves promised a world full of beautiful adventures.''   Sarah Guillory

October---My beach becomes, once again, stunningly beautiful in October. The bird fences are down, the people are gone. The lush dunes and white sand soar into infinity.


Hi, guys! Come for a walk with me! The sun is warm but the air is dry with a hint of crispness. You can wear your shorts, bring a hat---no sweater needed, not yet anyway. It's such a beautiful day. We'll hike on past the dunes, down to water's edge.








 A hidden, secret pathway up into the dunes. To be explored another day....

Tonight there's a chill in the air. Not a damp cold summer sea wind, but a dry stillness. A half-moon is hiding behind cold wispy clouds in a dark velvet sky.  
Mo is practicing his hiberation tactics.
Welcome, October!
gone to the beach.... 

hello little Gully!
Next time I'll bring food!
