Thanks, dianne ! Its so nice to have this huge beach just a 20-30 minute drive from work downtown. Sure makes for a quick getaway!

You are so lucky, I miss walking on the beach more than anything. We have two lovely rivers that flow through Kamloops but the smell and sounds are just not the same as the ocean. Beautiful peaceful shot.

To me, the beach/ocean is the best place to be summer or winter, you can stroll along the beach or just sit, watch and listen to the ocean. Dianne

Just in from a geography lesson, very nice. I meant to come back here after I gave up the other day.

This comment is for the next picture,(Ididn't want to bump your reply on it). Really cool, and I agree, I can sit back and watch work all day too.

Lovely colour. A closeup on GE shows so much car parking along that spit. What is it like in winter when Atlantic storms roll in. Is Nahant a holiday home area or residential/commuter?

Dare I risk a long 'Thank-you' comment, or will I type it and again it'll disappear in 'You have Signed Out' limbo? Why not Here goes:

Thanks to all of you Cal, dianne, helen and guy ! Yes, the long skinny part of this penninsula is just a divided roadway up to the built up 'islands' and a state recreation reservation. So other than the highway, there's parking the full length. But its separated from the beach by dunes, so when you're on the beach you're not aware of it. ( According to Wiki, the long skinny sand bar part is a 'tombolo' )

Helen - the built up areas are a combination of full time homes and some vacation homes, though much more heavily in the full time residence direction. And yup, it can get really nasty out there during major storms. There was quite a lot of damage in the 'No Name' "Perfect Storm" in 1991 that the movie of that name was based on, and in our 'Great Blizzard of '78', where we got about 4' of snow as well as heavy seas.
