End of the Dock

These pictures, taken from Haven Beach not long after the storm called Sandy, show the status of a dock which used to extend way out onto the beach. Since I don't visit Haven often, I'm not sure how long ago the end of the dock fell by the wayside.

The rest of it is perfectly intact, although the sand threatens to overtake it in spots.

Click here for a previous post about Haven; the very first picture in that post shows how far out the dock originally extended.

The beaches change so quickly around here, I never get bored.  And you never know just what you're going to find.

One thing I wasn't expecting on this particular trip was the following.

A beached couch!

A beached, overturned couch that at one point
 had been nailed to a dock (or something).
It blended in so well with the surroundings, I almost missed it.

At first I thought perhaps this was part of the end of the dock that washed away, but then I remembered the chairs nailed to the end of that dock were more Adirondack style, or so I recall. I can't seem to locate any other photos of the end of that dock with the chairs even though I have hundreds several.

Oh well, it was a pleasant--though brisk--walk on the beach.

In other news, last night Chesapeake Bay Daughter was battling a sore throat and fever.  Tomorrow is her first basketball game (away, at Rappahannock, which is approximately three two states away from home, by the way).  Friday evening is her first home game.  I'm just hoping she feels better soon.

Happy Wednesday.

Oh I hope she feels better prescription is a hot toddy (for you) and tons of vitamin C (for her).

Always love the photos

I want to say Hurricane Irene took the dock away. It's been like that for a while. I feel like I'm at the end of my dock, or is that rope? Rope. If I was at the end of my dock I'd feel better, especially if it also involved a glass of wine.

it's a rare talent that can make a storm-tossed couch look beautiful. Great photos! ... hope daughter feels better soon, but you can't possibly be playing Rappahannock H.S. in Rapphannock County, are you? that should be an overnighter game :)

Anonymous - YES, Rappahannock High School over near Tappahannock/Warsaw. I have to drive to Williamsburg to work today, then drive to Rappahannock HS, then all the way back to Mathews after the game tonight.

Also, Daughter is still not feeling great.

Serenity now.

What a peaceful spot. Perfect place for a couch.

Sorry to hear CB Daughter is under the weather. Hope she's better soon.
