THE BAY AND THE OCEAN


This is a view of the beach road that leads to the Gurnet from the hill where the Duxbury lighthouse sits. You can see Duxbury Bay on the left and the ocean on the right.

THE GURNET



Took a walk to the Duxbury lighthouse on this, the first 80 degree day of the season. It was so beautiful there, and the walk along the beach was delightful. To get to the lighthouse, we had to go through the Gurnet, a private community. We had to park outside and walk in to the lighthouse. Everyone was opening their houses up for the season, and there were some really nice gardens.

DUNE FENCES IN APRIL




On the same day that I took all the daffodil photos, I also braved the winds and went to the beach. I started taking a watercolor class recently, and we did a lesson on dunes. I realized that I needed some new photo references, so off I went to the beach.

DAFFODILS



I grabbed my camera last week on a beautiful, but windy, day. I wanted to see if the daffodils along the fence at the golf course were in bloom yet. Although not all of them had bloomed yet, many had and were at their peak of beauty. I took many, many photos of them. Here are a couple of them.
