ABC Wednesday - W

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


W is for Walkway to the Ocean .......




walkway to the ocean



This boardwalk is built into the sand dunes of a small park beside the ocean.

The visitors are not allowed off the walkway in order to protect the flora and fauna that make their homes in this beautiful area.

The blue ocean is just over the crest of the walkway that comes to an abrupt end on the sandy beach.

The swaying grasses and stunted pines are unique to this particular area in Maine.

  5. Gosh, it's a very pretty picture of a walkway. I like the fact that the walkway leaves you to the mind the ocean that you cannot see so it's paints a beautiful picture within this one.... nice job!

  6. It looks very inviting -- calling me to take a stroll there. I can almost smell the wonderful ocean smells.

  25. I am not sure how I missed you last week! Probably with all the Christmas excitement. This is a lovely "W"...the grasses make this very interesting as well as soothing to look at...not to mention how the ocean calls! You have quite the eye!
