A Snap, A Set and A Song - Coast

This week, Thea of A Snap. A Set and a Song has given us a theme of Coast. At first I thought that I might not be able to participate as I am heading down the coast a bit for a few days of R&R at Atlantic City, and didn't think I really had many photos that relate to this theme. However, living on an Island on the east coast of the United States, that wasn't really the case. Many of my pictures have been taken right by the water but facing away from it. They would qualify for the theme, but I have decided that I want to show the coastline or beach in every case, so without further ado, join me on the east coast!

(While you are at it, why don't you join us and create your own Snap, Set and Song post?)

The Snap

On this particular day, I had the pleasure of showing Australian photographer Catherine White around Staten Island, NY. The last site we stopped to take pictures at was South Beach - the southern coast of the island - where I caught this sunset. 

The Set

Being an island, we have a lot of coastline on a number of different bodies of water, here are just a few views from some of our coast along the Raritan Bay, the Narrows, and the Atlantic Ocean.

The Song

Where there is coastline, there is often a boardwalk ... Coney Island (Brooklyn), South Beach (Staten Island), and the one I am heading to - the boardwalk at Atlantic City.
