When the waves pick up and the foam comes in...
it reminds me of the tourists.
The out-of-towners have come and they have taken over.
There will be no more
long short walks on the empty beaches.
Our hunts for shells and sea glass are over until the Fall.
The beaches are no longer free to enter and on our favorite beach,
you must pay to get on until 9 pm on weekends.
But there are other perks to living at the shore during summer.
We have the boardwalks, movies on the beach, fireworks, putt-putt, festivals,
concerts, craft shows, peddle boats, parks - and so much more.
I am excited to live in a place where other people come to vacation!
