Boardwalk Days

“November--with uncanny witchery...Days full of a fine, pale sunshine.... 
Days with a high-sprung sky of flawless turquoise. 
Days when an exquisite melancholy seemed to hang over the landscape and dream about the [sea]. But days, too, of the wild blackness of great autumn storms, 
followed by dank, wet, streaming nights 
when there was witch-laughter in the pines 
and fitful moans among the mainland trees.''― L.M. Montgomery

Hi, everyone! The other day I had a visitor who wanted to walk on the boardwalk in our bigger town. It was again a glorious day--like your September, maybe: 65, and balmy. The boardwalk and beach here are beautiful---serene, pristine, despite being in a semi-urban setting. 

Quite a few surfers because it was a school holiday.

Remember this boardwalk was destroyed completely just four years ago by Hurricane Sandy. It is 2.2 miles long, and cost 42 million dollars to rebuild; the new boardwalk reopened one year after H Sandy.

Next time I will bring a picnic.
