The Hut on the beach

unknown visitors

 Hut found on beach at Beer Can Island




Looking in the hut


inside looking out

the roof


The view from the hut

Advice from the ocean.

Be Shore of yourself

come out of your shell

take time to coast

avoid pier pressure

sea life's beauty

don't get tide down.

I like to imagine an adult showing children how they used to build huts when they were children...and in that moment they were all equally children again.

That is really neat, Sandra... I would imagine it would be kind of spooky-looking at night!
And those were very wise words from the ocean....

GOOSE said...

Now that is a great hut! You can see why I save sticks. They are very useful and provide shelter.

Susannah said...

Oh...I love that place!!!!Can you imagine being a kid and playing with that hut? I would even want to as an adult!!!! You know I love it when you go to Beer Can Island!

Good advice from the ocean.

gonna have to share this with my pal from the jersey shore - just in case she doesn't follow you. :)

George said...

That's a pretty neat hut you found. I also like the ocean's advice. Thanks for a great post.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I'd have loved that hut when I was younger. Cool find! Good advice from the ocean, too.

Ginny said...

Did you JUST take this??? I know this is a STUPID question, but is this thing just blown beach stuff, or did someone make it, maybe some boys? Or maybe a bit of both. The more I go back and LOOK, the more I think someone had to make it, some of the branches look heavy and well placed.

Ginny said...

P.S. I think some girls should go in there and decorate it with shells and seaweed.

Betsy Adams said...

AH----neat hut.... It seems to be fairly well-built, with a roof (sorta) and a window or several!!!!! ha.... Did you all have a picnic inside????

Hugs,
Betsy

I don't think anyone tires of fort building--even adults.

Lisa said...

Neat house! That is living simple!

LC said...

Loved the "poetic" advice on the seas-ons of life!

The hut looked like it would be spookily thrilling for children's beach adventures.

No Gilligan????

SweetMarie said...

How cool! I wonder if someone slept there overnight?? Great photos! It is so beautiful there!

Inger said...

Beer Can Island sound like the place for me!

S. Etole said...

One of my favorite posts. What a great place for the imagination to play.

I love these images! They are so awesome in their richness and texture! We'll have to go check out the place sometime.

Love the Ocean advice...right on!
The hut looks cozy and a perfect place to get in out of the wind.
It seems like it took a lot of patience to build.
In response to your comments a few posts back.
I will have to look into some pools around here.Don't know if there are any and what the cost would be.
I sure would like some relief.

photowannabe said...

Just read LC's comment and I love her seas-ons of life. Clever.

Terri said...

Looks like something that Les whats his name would try and survive 7 days in..Or maybe just some kids playing on the beach! :)

Ann said...

well isn't that a neat little hut. Maybe left over from shipwrecked castaways?
Love the advice from the ocean.

Dee said...

A beach bum castle.... I could nap there...warm sand...sound of the surf....blue sky and at night twinkling stars as a night light. Good find....:)

ClickNCamera said...

Reminds me of the movie "Castaway"...did you see any Tom Hanks look a likes? Love the last shot - looking out! Enjoy your day!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Awesome pictures. I just love dried dead tree stumps. I have a large collection of photos of them.

SquirrelQueen said...

That is one really nut beach hut. Someone spent a lot of time making it just right. Give me a sleeping bag and I would give it a try.

Mother Ocean is so wise. That is some good advice.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

That is so cool. The old weathered wood has a beauty all its own.

DawnTreader said...

Those tree trunks on the beach really bear witness to the forces of nature that brought them there...

Chatty Crone said...
