A Walk at the Beach

I was so happy the rain held off tonight so I could get a walk in. I have come to sort of depend on walks to clear my mind, mostly, if the music is blaring. 

I found another lonely lock on my walk tonight.

I wonder how long it has been there and who put it there. I did some research about the locks and it seems it is a love thing. I wonder if a couple put the lock there and if they are still together.

Some of these pictures are from yesterday and not tonight’s walk. I was worried about rain so I did not stop and take a lot of pictures.

I live about a 15 minute walk to the beach. I like walking along the beach, as do many others in the area. The beach is not the nicest beach and is very rocky like a lot of New England beaches but I do like living so close to the water.

The whole beach walk is about 2 miles so down so it makes a good workout. Not So Secret Sister lives along the street so sometimes I might stop to see if she is at home.

When it is not to crowded like it was last night, I can go and think.  I tend to overthink but something about walking along there calms me. Maybe it is the sound of the ocean and the salty smell. I don’t know but it is one of the better things about where I live.

The water actually looks sort of nice in this picture.

  1. I love walking near water. My husband and I rode bikes this weekend near water and it's just such a soothing thing. Don't know why, but I love it too.

    1. I am afraid of riding my bike and getting hit by a car. I used to be so fearless riding my bike but as a driver, I know how we can be.

  2. I love being near water. We have a river that borders our town, and I love going down and just sitting where I can see and hear it.
