Popham Beach State Park Scenery
There is nothing like a day at the beach. The soothing sound of waves caressing the sand, gull calls, the whinnying of horses, the happy chatter of children, barking dogs, and the contented sighs of adults as they all let go of their cares for a few moments in time...beach time, that is. Ahhhh....
We love poking around on the beach, and today was perfect. The temp. was nearly 60F, with a nice breeze under a mostly cloudy sky. There were horses galore, a group of greyhounds and their owners (us included), and random families spread over the wide expanse of beach. Never did we feel crowded. It was low tide, and we spent a good bit of our time climbing around on Fox Island. The views were spectacular.
We also did a bit of beach combing along the water's edge. I am trying to accumulate enough good photos for a scenery calendar this year. I found this clam shell getting pushed around by the surf, so I took a number of photos of it in different positions. And, the sand dollar was a bonus;-)
