Old Orchard Beach Amusement Park


This was made just after Christmas. The tourists are long gone and much of it was boarded up. A few hotels were renovating. It reminded me of the line from Atlantic City by Bruce Springsteen….”Everything dies, baby, that’s a fact, but maybe everything that dies someday comes back”. The crowds will be back and the Ferris wheel will spin again.

Springsteen wrote and sang it, but I prefer the version by The Band.

WPC: Off-Season


These were first posted some months ago when our coast was buried in snow. Now this area is full of people running around in bathing suits and there is a sand sculpture competition this week.
