After the storm

everyone went back to school and I went to work. One thing I like after a good storm is the bright blue sky and against all that white it was pretty spectacular. So on my lunch hour I decided to wander out and take some pictures. I'll give you a little bit of the lay of the land before you look at them. Ocean City has a wooden boardwalk that is 2 1/2 miles long. The extreme northern end and southern ends are residential. (Commercial areas ie: rides, stores, and food run only from 5th St to 14th St and the boardwalk is 3x's as wide) I wanted to go to a more desolate (this time of year) area so I drove to 20th St instead of walking to the boardwalk from work (besides the sidewalks weren't really safe for walking)

I only had a point & shoot camera in my purse so the pictures are so-so.

This first picture is standing on the boardwalk looking south ....

Now I walked down the beach access steps onto the path thru the dunes onto the beach
(good thing I had already decided that I will be replacing my high black leather boots the end of this season :wink:)

From this point I turned to look North. In the distance the pink building and the large white building are the 2 biggest hotels on the island. You can make out a few amusements sticking up in the air too. If I had been standing further down the path or on the beach you would have been able to see the casinos in Atlantic City.

Now around the bend in the path you can catch a glimpse of the beach and the Atlantic Ocean...

Finally looking straight down on to the beach...I wasn't walking any further. As I said earlier I was in my work clothes. If dressed properly I would have loved to go for a walk along the beach.

So that's it for today...just a few not so typical pictures of the beach. It's experiencing days like these that I truly feel very lucky living here along the coast. I'm sure something scrappy will be posted later in the week.
