The dead tree in this picture used to be a sand-submerged pine tree at Aaron's Beach.
I've taken its picture many times but it's never looked this bad.
For the first time since I've been visiting, there isn't one bit of green clinging to it.
It's only a matter of time before it falls.
Speaking of falling,
I was alerted by my neighbor Julie earlier this week (or was it last?)
that my Number One Favorite Tree of All Time at Aaron's Beach had fallen.
I'll post pictures of that sad sight next week.
Click here for a 2011 post that shows (in the second and third pictures, if you squint) the pine tree above in happier days. It also shows my favorite tree (fourth picture, far right) that I'll talk more about next week.
Because that's what I do here on this blog. Talk about inanimate objects as if they were people.
I think I may need to get out more. Or perhaps the sinus pressure is finally doing me in.
Either way, have a great weekend.
