Yesterday it was a gorgeous day..sunny, fairly warm, but very windy. I had to go to Plymouth again (3rd. time this week) to buy groceries for a 90th birthday party I am giving my aunt tomorrow. We will also celebrate my mother's 91st birthday and my husbands 69th. Since I had to go to Plymouth, I also went to the beach. I walked the bike path and the beach, and then sat on the sand protected by a small cedar tree to take photos of the ospreys and gulls.
While at the beach, I met a lovely lady (Mary) who was with her young granddauhter also taking photos. We spoke for sometime. How nice chance encounters are when you meet someone who shares your interest.
Here are a few other photos that I took.
The lighthouse photos were taken from the bike path..and they were far away in the harbor. The red light is the Bug Light
