Please Stay on the Grass

“In Their Element”

During a visit to the Shelburne Museum in Vermont last year, I noticed an odd sign posted in the grass next to the walking path: Please Stay on the Grass.

It was then that I realized I was looking at an art installation. Who knew? I love smooth stones, which I usually only see at the beach. This was something entirely different.

I was intrigued.

The artists’ information was posted nearby:

Sandy Beach

Citysonnet’s photo a day challenge for August features Sandy Beach for today’s prompt.


A sandy beach is one of my favorite places to visit, relax, walk, vacation…and take photos. No two pictures are ever exactly the same.

I have posted many photos from California’s coast, but this time I will share one from the coast of Maine.

My husband and I enjoyed a rare few days away in 2014 …at a sandy beach…off season and deserted.
