a walk on the beach

Today's sun and chilly air drew me to Crane Beach for a walk along the water. I arrived about an hour after high tide; that provided a reasonable walking surface.

The ocean was active and the wind was strong. A few sea gulls joined humans in walking down the sandy beach.

More photos from my walk can be seen in the gallery coastal Massachusetts :: 2015 starting with this photo and ending here.

I was fascinated when I read these words on a sign in the park:

Formed some 6,300 years ago, Crane Beach is part of a 22-mile chain of barrier islands stretching from Cape Ann to Great Boar's Head in New Hampshire.
