Beautiful Duxbury Beach

Still enjoying my vacation days, after a leisurely breakfast with my husband, I drove down to Duxbury Beach.  I absolutely love this place!  I parked at the end of Powder Point Bridge and walked in, since I do not have a permit to take my car in.  I did not see any snowy owls, but I sure did enjoy the beautiful weather and stunning scenery!

There are several cutovers to the beach.  I went over at least three different ones, enjoying some time on the beach as well.

There were a lot of different views of Gurnet Light, but eventually I walked so close that I could no longer see it, so at that point I turned back.

Another favorite tree of mine

Before heading for home, I had to stop and wander through the Old Shipbuilders District.  Most of the homes date from the early 1800s.  

Love, love, love this wreath!
