Every ocean has its own salty scent, its own sort of landscaping and its own surfside sounds. Whether waters are welcomed in over soft sand or parried by solid stone, we are irresistibly drawn to that uneven edge where sea encounters land.
We’ve seen them engaged with one other before, but it is never the same.
Beside a different ocean, or even along the same bit of shore on a new day… we are drawn to that magical moment of meeting. Where opposites, attracted but separate, will dance for us on the rhythms of the tide.
Recently Footsteps has featured photos of the Pacific and Caribbean shores around Puerto Rico and Isla de Vieques. The frigid waters and beaches of the Atlantic on Cape Cod, Massachusetts carry a contrasting beauty that is just as impressive. And equally memorable.
