Plymouth Long Beach, more commonly known as just Plymouth Beach, was another spot I happened upon unexpectedly. While trying to find the painted lobsters in Plymouth (blog post to follow soon), I pulled over into this parking lot to get my bearings. Since I was there, I figured I would check the place out and take some shots. I’m so glad I did!
There is a rocky jetti you can walk out to get some photos of the bay. Yes please.
The waves were pretty, well, wavey. But, otherwise it was a pitcure perfect beach day.
One of the great things about the beach is there is a deli and comfort stations as well.
On the other side of the beach is a stream that runs between the beach area and the residences of the neighborhood. There are also some bridges that connect the residents to the beach.
The birds aren’t very shy at the beach, probably because they are so well fed by the beach goers.
In fact, some of them lurk around, waiting for crumbs.
People also like to go fishing, mainly for stripers, at Plymouth Beach.
Plymouth Long Beach is beach friendly (but only in designated areas).
Proving that it is indeed a small world, I ran into Vivi, a dog I had photographed during my visit to Chestnut Hill Reservation. Vivi is still her playful self.
Daisy, a 4 year old Black Lab, and Cricket, a 2 year old Chocolate Lab, had fun playing in the water.
Below is a video of the waves and scenic views of Plymouth Beach
