After they've all gone home

The prettiest time of year at the beach........when the tourists and summer people have gone home. Only a few footsteps are left behind as evidence that they were once here.
Lifeguards no longer
man their posts.
Swim at your own risk!
if you can stand the cold waters.

What stunning photos!!!
Having grown up near the beach, I always loved the off season, sunrise, and after storms!

Anne Marie said...

poetically peaceful Carole........

when we visited my grandparents in Florida, it was never during the 'peek' times.....and those images you shared (are way! better) are just what I remember...we didn't do much swimming

those are striking Carole.......some of my favs. thus far......
p.s. did you see Laeriss is going to start selling clothing?.....I know!!

Gorgeous images Carole, just beautiful.

I'm about to go through the tourist bombardment with summer on it's way.. It is only the weekend visitors, but very annoying.. haha

Love to live in one of these houses!! Have a great Sunday x Julie

What an idyllic with no-one on it....I'd love to be running along it, right now.

Love them Carole. XXXX

Stunning images. I am enchanted by the colors, shadows and patterns. It is a perfect time to take a walk 'sur la plage'.

Merci, Marjorie

Hi Carole,

We feel the same way here, when the tourists go away everything seems so beautiful and peaceful.
It is the best time to take walks along the beach.
Many thanks for sharing your lovely photos.

Don't you just love an empty beach, just you and the sand, the sounds of the sea and the sea can even finally listen to the wind without intrusions.

Love your photos! The sand one is almost like a painting!
