Second Beach | Middletown, RI
Here’s to the season of no lifeguard chairs, where dogs freely roam the beach and the wind is a little more harsh as it blows through your hair. Cheers to the water still sparkling and the sun still setting perfectly. Though the waves are still navy blue, and the sand still shimmers as water races across its back, gone are the ones who survey the water from their lofty wooden chairs and gone are the crowds they protect. This is beach season for one, a time to take walks and watch the skies as the clouds race across them pierced by the occasional flock of geese flying somewhere south in a carefully composed V. As days grow shorter and the beach grows longer, here’s to the warmer days passed and those that will follow.
