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.
