...but not one quite like this. This is the beach nearest to where I have been living for the last month. It's a deeply charming place - and normally very calm to swim in, or so I am told. Because of the weather system cutting in last night there were a few waves, of which I made good fare, I hope. Good enough, anyway.
There are many parts of Maryland that so could be England. This beach is not one of them. It is most definitely foreign, and delightfully so. Many of the beaches in Maryland are actually private, so getting to the coast - even if you live right near it - is not easy. If someone owns the house right next to the beach, that bit of beach is theirs, so you can see how whole stretches of beach become unreachable - whilst at the same time, the rich owners of the house get that much prized luxury of a private beach. Capitalism in full swing, one might say.
Anyway, I hope you like the picture.
