Wednesday Walk along East Beach New Bedford

Wednesday Walk along East Beach New Bedford

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

Following me and re-Hiving the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk.

East beach is a wide, sandy beach on the western shore of New Bedford Harbor, it is very popular on summer days I have seen it quite packed with people, but I prefer visiting it in the early morning when there is not to many people around, for two reasons;

I guess it would be honest to say I am anti-social I hate crowded spots, and secondly, I have had many cancerous skin spots removed, so I now avoid being out in the sun for two long and definitely am not a sunbather.

IN this shot i am looking across the beech with the pier at Fort Taber in the background.

Walking along the beach some more looking again towards Fort Taber, as you can see it truly is a wide and Sandy Beach.
Getting there is a pain during Summer, there is a road beside the beach but no parking is allowed during summer till the 15th of September, so now I can park there but not when I took these shots.
Also there are beach parking areas just across the road from the beach for for some weird reason they are closed off in the early morning, so I have to park a few streets away where parking is allowed and walk to the beach
