Seaside Surprise

There's nothing like a morning drive along the coast. The smell of the salty air and the sound of crashing waves are a wonderful way to begin the day, and it's true rain or shine. The ocean is powerful, soothing, and spiritual.

A few weeks ago hubby and I were meeting friends for an early lunch at our favorite seafood restaurant in Rye, NH. Along the coastal route are small parking alcoves that you can stop at and view the beach and ocean, although there are more rocks than beach.

We all met at an alcove close to Odiorne State Park. From that spot you can see the Isles of Shoals in the distance, Whaleback Lighthouse, lobster fishermen, and occasionally a huge tanker or fishing trawler. We parked and walked down toward the water and we couldn't believe our eyes!!

The entire area was covered with rock sculptures!!!

We were in awe of these wonderful sculptures! And even more impressive was that people were walking down to admire the sculptures and then began gathering rocks to make their own sculptures!!!! Young people and older folks, all adding their own work........ It was amazing. Natural art for all ages......made my day!

It's funny, the first time I've recognized such stone sculptures, was in Norway, nearly 20 years ago. Meanwhile I determine, they can be found all over the globe.  smile
