Mosying along...


When I left Rockport, I intended to hug the coast for a while up to Pigeon Cove or so.  The fog was thick and there weren’t too many views of the water.  But I felt the urge to stay by the water even though I couldn't see it most of the way.  By the time I hit Salisbury Beach, I knew I needed to head inland, I set my GPS to the anti-highways setting and took off.  It may have added 45 minutes to an hour to my trip to Tilton, New Hampshire, but, in spite of the weather, it was beautiful.

There’s something special about weaving your way through small New England towns with their neat commons and old houses.  It’s probably what made me fall in love with this area in the first place.  But it was the natural beauty that took my breath away.

I love those foggy shots, just enough color to off set the haze, and that sand sculpture! I am amazed by what people can create with sand and water.

Thanks so much for sharing these at Behind The Camera!
