The winter clouds are beautiful even on a windy Monday. I barely could stand with the wind yesterday. Always fun.
At Magnolia Beach after sunset the sand was still glowing.
Another beauty of a late afternoon walk. After sitting too long working I decided to go to Coolidge Reservation. What a treat it is up there and then took a walk toward Magnolia Beach. The waves were loud and soothing and the sun again amazing. So grateful.
We are so lucky to feel appreciative of our beautiful sunsets.
Magnolia Beach pink sand, pink sky and pink ocean
This photo was taken from Shore Road, same night 5 minutes apart.
Even in the rain Magnolia Beach looked so pretty. Saturday was the day we took the ramps in and winterize the beach.
Soft waves on Magnolia Beach
What a fun night at the Magnolia Beach Corp. on Saturday night. Beautiful evening and lots of great friends and of course the beach.
A beautiful afternoon on Wednesday even though it had rained in the morning. When I went to the beach late in the day, the clouds showed what kind of day it was.
What we all need to do.
After work on Monday decided to go to the beach for an hour. It was beautiful and so relaxing.

First went cleaning up at the old Friendly’ parking lot. It was so pretty early on Saturday morning, then the afternoon near Magnolia Beach. Glorious
Lot of damage at the Magnolia Beach entrance. Also sand, rocks, pieces of wood and debris in parking lot.
