A Ragged Colt May Make A Good Horse

I'm still finding excuses to drive down to Fort Monroe (where I lived last year) and wander around the moat and visit the deserted beaches. It had been a quiet base before, but now it seems almost a ghost town. Only a handful of families remain; the roads are more populated with gulls dropping clams from above to break their shells than cars. There's a certain stillness in the air, a deserted look to the beaches that didn't exist before; sand unblemished by previous footprints. Yet, I'm not quite ready to give up the ghost, enjoying an aimless wander there now more than ever before...

You always find such great places to take your photos, I envy you living in my countryside areas. I live slap bang in the middle of suburbia. No quiet spaces except for my garden...anyway it must be so nice to find a spot like Fort Monroe!

In the first photo i thought that sweater was part of the jacket. Nice layering job! Super cute outfit and great photos.
