A PLACE MY ENERGY IS RESTORED:

WALLIS SANDS BEACH IN RYE, N. H.

The WordPress photo prompt for October 9, 2015, was Happy Place…where you get your groove back. Since I’m a person of many moods and many interests I have many places where I go to “get my groove” back. I chose one place this can happen for me, one Happy Place—which will not surprise anyone who knows me. Below are pictures of Wallis Sands Beach in Rye, New Hampshire, where I spent many hours as a child—most often being taken by my grandparents.

Rocks I used to climb, and my grandmother sat on. Now I sit in the same place.

Footsteps in the sand

Waiting for the wave to hit. Will it knock me down?

All these activities, including walking along the water line and gathering shells, relax me and bring “my groove” back. That is, until I have to leave. Always too soon.
