The Beach & Beyond

Our home, three blocks from the ocean, I am told is on a desirable lot...I believe that may be true, depending on what type of beach you call a "real" beach. I love to imagine what it may have looked like here, before people began to "improve " it...
I have been traveling to Chincoteague since 1997.Often people ask me why I continue to say that no other beach can compare....
When I think of a natural beach, I think of the National Sea Shore...Assateague...mile after mile of life in many forms
People are different here....they truly believe that the beach must be treated with respect...
Nesting birds are guarded dutifully....

Ponies share the turf with birds, and deer...and oh those dolphins..
....all in harmony with the land and the ocean...
...I could never tire of the changing Sea.

Following a long reflective walk on the shoreline, you have to hike on the trails, where many others find their inspiration...
Can you imagine how beautiful her finished work will be?
