A beige skirt with white fringe.
Blue fabric flutters in warmth’s light.
Crystals flee in spring’s breeze;
open wave promises of
plaid blankets and plover races.

      Thank you, Max. Yes, not many people out on the beach in any capacity at this time of year. Often the wind is bitterly cold. You will see the chickens like me enjoying the view from the car. I got there around 4:30. Around 5 a steady stream of cars filled up the spaces, people getting out of work and heading out the enjoy the view.

        Oh yea…it’s just so desolate…the opposite of what you think of a beach of course. It’s like looking at an empty carnival.

    The beach always promises something. When I was young I lived about 15 minutes away from Lake Erie, near Cleveland, and this fits my memories. (K)

        Oh yes. But not since I was a child. I’m glad it’s still there.
