I think Summer officially peaked for me on Sunday, August 7th with this walk atop the causeway surrounded by scene after scene exemplifying the beauty of a Marblehead Summer.  Before capturing the closer view of a packed Devereux Beach, I happened upon a man standing more than waist deep in the Atlantic Ocean and fishing off the causeway.

I watched him for a little while as I composed this image and waited for cars to pass by.  I didn’t see him catch anything but he seemed quite content as the waves pushed and pulled at him.  I loved the proximity of this man enjoying the mid-afternoon sun and warm temperatures as hundreds frolicked on Devereux Beach just beyond the rock wall.  The addition of the flag hanging from a lamp post along the causeway clinched this as a perfect view of a Summer day in Marblehead.
