The boardwalk at Salisbury Beach, Massachusetts, several days after a Nor'easter blew through. The boardwalk didn't exist when I was a youngster growing up in Salisbury. In its place was a row of rundown seasonal businesses that had their heyday decades earlier, when Salisbury was considered more of a resort destination. April 2018. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ

It was a bit too warm today for a long hike, especially when my next destination was not a shower, but an airplane. All things considered, this view wasn't bad.

Jumping over the border into , my friend and I visited Devils Tower National Monument today, where we did a walk around the entire perimeter of the monolith. The weather has been overcast since mid-morning, with some low fog in places, so black and white seemed like the best filter for this .

The hotel in , South Dakota, doesn't look like much from the street, but my room does come with a rather bucolic view of hayfields and rolling hills.

The glass isn't particularly clean, so there's quite a bit of glare in the .

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. My beautiful @kathryn took this photo during a day trip we made to Chartres, France, in January 2013. Today seemed like an appropriate day to share it. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท
