Decaying Seawall

A couple of weeks ago, I visited Squantum Point in Quincy, MA. While it has trails and conservation land now, it used to be a naval air station. The Navy had installed metal barriers to keep the sea from eroding the area where the runways were located. Now, the barriers themselves have rusted and eroded.

      Ha ha ha – So true. Everything erodes, even seawalls. I have another shot to share where you can see more than just the silhouette but you’ve likely already seen it in Flickr. It’s about the same here. We are expecting sunny weather tomorrow. It’s time to get out with the camera.

    It always makes me wonder why they don’t spend the money to take these structures down – it must really be on the list that does nkt fit the budget – and your photo evokes a lot about change and the way certai things become obsolete

      Thank you. I find many old and worn things to have their own form of beauty. The view was great. This spot is right near where my grandmother used to live but somehow I never came here.
