I have several Flickr photo albums that contain boardwalk photos, but I think this set is my favorite. It was taken two years ago in Seaside, about 5 miles from where we now live.
Seaside as we knew it, as it was in those pictures, no longer exists.
From Alfred Lord Tennyson's Ulysses:
"It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be that we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are.
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."
