I went beachcombing at my secret spot and passed through the small village of Monument Beach. I've been through it dozens of times but never stopped to take pictures till I was on my way back from 'the spot'. There is a small beach and marina and a teensy town.
Went for a quick walk on the beach. Some glass, but mostly fresh.
I loved this conch shell but it was covered with living marine life so I didn't take it home with me.
This leads to a private island
This is the cutest idea! A little 'library' where you can borrow a book to read whilst sunning yourself on the sand!
Then I stopped in town for a bit. This mural is fading but really cute.
Fall colours are gorgeous!
Then I stopped at The Lobster Trap which is a restaurant, seafood market and wholesaler, and where my hubby picks up a tractor trailer's worth of lobsters to take to upstate NY each week. There is such a small parking lot and yet he turns that 18-wheeled rig around and backs into those bays.
The Trap is right on this scenic little waterway.
And across the street, you can just see the top of the Bourne Bridge above the trees in the center.
On the way back home, I stopped at this little cemetery which is between Mashnee Island and Monument Beach.
A few stones are from the mid 1900s but most of them were quite old.
Love the old headstone designs.
