Ocean Views: The New England Coast

OCEAN VIEWS

THE NEW ENGLAND COAST

     There is nothing more soothing than sitting on the rocks at Wallis Sands Beach in Rye, New Hampshire, and watching the waves roll in. These are the same rocks from which my grandmother, May Isabelle (Mable) Briskay, supervised my sister and I as we played on the beach, caught crabs from pools of saltwater, climbed the rocks, and challenged the waves.

     Last week the subject presented by the WordPress weekly photo challenge was ocean. Granted, I cannot get to the ocean to meet the challenge. However, my photo archives are filled with pictures I’ve taken on my visits to the New England coast—where I was born and spent half of my childhood. The camera is a tool by which I save the images of waves rolling in and crashing before the water reverses direction and returns to the sea.

     I posted three photos on www.carolyncholland2011.wordpress.com (Weekly Photo Challenge: Ocean), where I am meeting the challenge to do a post every day. Below are additional photos.
