Dune Paths

Recently, while walking through one of the Avalon beach paths, I spotted a side trail.

Instant flash back to my childhood…when the high dunes were our backyard play area.  Full disclosure: this was before it was considered trespassing!

My sisters and I had elaborate forts, and knew all of the hidden paths around the private homes.

When it snowed, we rode the hills on plastic sleds or rafts (sounds pathetic, but it was fun)- returning home covered in a gross mixture of sand and snow!

A happy, and unique memory from growing up on the island :)

    Such a wonderful memory. Things that we don’t get to enjoy as summer visitors, but so fun to imagine! Thanks for sharing, Ann!

    You should recognize that “secret path” off the 44th Street entrance!

    Thought it looked familiar, but after all the years of walking the 44th Street path I thought I was just getting possessive ! Love our beach path!
