But it could have been taken any time, over the past many decades.

Compo Beach is as steady as the tides.

    I miss Compo!

    Love this photo.

    Black ‘n White does have a way of altering time or perception.

    Looks like late 1960’s configuration

  3. The sand has never been so nice as it is now. Remember all the rocks at the water’s edge and South Beach was so rocky?

    Yeah, I remember the stones were plentiful back in the 1970’s!

    Didn’t stop me from walking to get to the jetties though, or climbing the canons, lol.

    … misty, water colored memmm-ories …

    Cheesy flip-flops were essential. (They always seemed to fall apart easily back then too)

    Bare feet on rocky beach sand (ouch), Salt.
    Charcoal,
    Catamarans, Bicycles.
    Heat. Soothing coolness on the boardwalk.
    Laughter,
    A place to meet (and think).

    An exceptional classroom.
