Black and White Wednesday is run by Lisa over at
The Long Road to China.
I missed this opportunity when I was at Silver Sands State Park in Milford, CT. There is a sandbar that leads straight to this island, but it is covered at high tide. Duh. So, I'm at this beach, looking at the island, for a good 45 minutes before I finally start walking the sandbar toward the island. Of course, as I am walking, I can see the waterline creeping inward, flooding the crevices between the rocks and sending the birds scampering away. I kinda kept ignoring it, until with one big whoosh, it covered the sandbar completely.
I was so disappointed that I had missed my chance to walk to the island. Fortunately, as I walked slowly back toward the main land, I realized that if I had indeed gone over earlier and made it to the island, I probably would have gotten stuck ON the island as the tide came in, covering my way back instead of my way in.
Oh well. At least I got some great photos. And I can always go back.
