One last walk at Avery Point…
This brick path sculpture walk by the sea at Avery Point has been our go-to walk for many, many years. So close to home and so beautiful through all the seasons. It was the first place we walked after Tim’s heart attack and triple by-pass surgery. A place for healing and contemplation, especially to listen to the buoy bells and watch the sky when a storm was approaching. So many memories and changes through the years.

How bittersweet, these ‘last’ visits. <3
Indeed, I want to go but I don’t want to leave…
The cooler beech trees are absolutely beautiful, Barbara. Are they a reddish purple? The bark is so interesting.
The sculpture certainly reflects Tim’s sense of humor. I’m glad you caught that moment.
And the iconic lighthouse. What can I say… it truly will be missed!
Is this your last week before the move?
We leave in 10 days. Reddish purple is a good way to describe the copper beach leaves, although they change a little with the light. They do look like matte copper at times. I love the bark and touching the trees, they have a certain kind of energy that resonates with me. I think I have pictures of that sculpture Tim loves from different angles and in different seasons…
Ah I also had a husband with triple bypass. May Tim live long and happily
Thank you, Leelah. It’s been 15 years since Tim nearly lost his life. He’s on lots of medication and so far it’s keeping him alive. I hope your husband has had a new chance at living, too.
Beautiful photos, but I understand your wistfulness. Moving forward can be difficult, but perhaps will provide you with new beautiful photos?
Thank you, Ally. My heart is pulling me back and forth in two different directions. New beautiful photos? I’m counting on it! 🙂
I, too, am going to miss these beautiful walks of yours, Barbara! Saying ‘good-bye’ is never easy, but you’ll treasure these memories forever. And I can’t help but look forward to the beautiful scenery you’ll find at your next stop!
Thank you, Debbie, it’s nice to know you’ll be looking forward to the new photo adventures from down south! Change is an inevitable part of life and for the most part, I am embracing it with open arms, even as I am aware of what will be dearly missed.
Lovely shots at your one last look, Barbara! Hard to say goodbye, but think of all the new adventuring places you and Tim discover. LOVE that Common Eider shot, well done!!
Thank you, Donna!!! We’ve been seeing common eiders more often around here lately. I’m excited about what new birds I will find in North Carolina, along with some of the same ones we have up here.
These are beautiful memories you are making Barbara – kind of capping off all your favorite spots and memories, especially this one as it was your first go-to place after Tim’s heart attack and surgery. I know you must be frantic to get everything packed/organized and finalized before the June 1st departure date. You can breathe a big sigh of relief when you head out the door to new beginnings. These purple flowers are so perky and colorful – are they all allium? The lighthouse is beautiful as well.
I’m glad we’re getting a few walking breaks from all the chaos of packing. The boxes have crowded out my yoga spot so I’m missing that now. The POD is coming today and we have movers coming to load it with the heavy furniture and boxes for us. Then we can take our time filling it with the lighter stuff for a few days. Larisa arriving Monday and cleaners coming on Tuesday. Time is flying! Yes, the purple flowers at the end are alliums, not sure what the ones on the ledge are.
