A few pictures from a hike I took recently through woods toward a beach. It was a warm day, good to be walking among the trees, in and out of the sun.
The path was often exposed roots. Apparently trees don’t mind being crowded.
The destination was this bar formed by low tide. It is a real beach, and a popular one, though that doesn’t show here. Two children were building sand castles at the far side; other people were set up with awnings and towels. A lot to carry in for a mile, I thought. I soon returned to the shade of the woods.
