Tin Can Alley II














































































Here are more jetties from Tin Can Alley. Almost all of these One or two of these may have been taken when my feet were planted outside the boundaries of the public beach and oh so briefly in the sands that make up private property. But it was just for a split second. Or two.

Promise.

I went to high school with the new sheriff in town, so hopefully he'll overlook this slight infraction. To be specific, I actually went to the Prom with him. He was a junior and I was a sophomore. If memory serves, and it may not, he wore a powder blue tuxedo. When I was a freshman, I went to the Prom with someone else who also ran for sheriff.

I'm not sure what any of this means, but one possible extrapolation is that anyone interested in running for Mathews County sheriff should have "Went to the Prom with CBW" on their application.

Sometimes I wonder just exactly what part of my deteriorating brain words like extrapolation are pulled from. Probably the very same section that authorizes and condones a reference to sheriffs, deputies and Prom dates when I clearly started off talking about jetties on Gwynns Island.

Maybe I'm just getting all nostalgic for Friday's 30-year class reunion.

(Or maybe I can't stay focused on one topic to save my life.)

Either way, this word association exercise blog post is now ending.

Have a great day.

So good to hear someone else has similar thought patterns..free association has the reins here!

Oh, I love the beach. Can't wait to be driving again, so much easier to get there. I could catch a bus train train and another bus or two, but it does take time!

Enjoy your time with your feet in the sand. private or public, it doesn't matter. And have fun at the reunion, I can just imagine the fun you'll have!

It is actually remarkable that anyone comments on blogs these days, the hoops one has to jump through to do so! Argh.

More wonderful and serene photos - you must extend your boundaries to ensure we get these great pictures:)
Being a prom date of CBW should be part of the official campaign materials.
Extrapolation or free association - that is just normally how my brain works...
Have a great day, dearie!

It's a smack of jellyfish. FYI, if you enter a beach from the water by way of some type of watercraft (boat, raft, kayak, rubber ducky) you can legally be on the beach up to the high water mark and not be trespassing.

It's funny how tiny little beaches like these are often my favorites. Thanks for the photos, as always they're just the tonic I need. Betsy

Did you play "kick the can" at tin can alley?...well maybe not, not many places to hide.

Anyway, love the pictures, as always, and hope you have a wonderful time at your reunion. My 50th is coming up in a about 5 years. I might go to that one.
