Earlier this year, the nonprofit WalkBoston produced a wonderful walking map of the historic city of Revere.  If you’re ever in the neighborhood you can access the map online via this link or contact the organization for lovely paper maps. As with many a seaside town, Revere in summer is quite different than Revere in winter.  In either season, my favorite walk is along the beach.  This is what I saw this weekend before the chill drove me home.

Thanks to friends and family from around the world, I’ve got quite a growing collection of shells. Most of the shells that I have collected myself I have done so along Revere Beach in Revere, MA.  That beach has become a favorite haunt to walk for relaxation and exercise.  I never know what I might find in the sand and along the water’s edge.  Moving forward, I hope to venture further afield into the heart of the culturally rich and diverse community.  That is in part why I love and support the idea of a Revere Walking Map being created.  I do use them. Watch the video below to understand the behind the scenes making of such a map and/or visit this page to see the opportunities and levels for giving.  A great cause especially if you live or travel out this way.

P.S. Here’s how I’ve used a similar walking map to help make my way around Somerville and its parks.

… flooded with light that brands the walls a golden cream.

It reminded me of squeezing through a dark mountain passage and stumbling upon a room lit by bioluminescent growth upon the walls.  But in fact there were no walls at all.

In my hand I held a paper bag full of stones collected from a neighboring beach. The stones I had intended to photograph, but somehow, the “walls” of that bag seemed far more fascinating.

I am sure the stones will have their day.

When I told my family in Virginia that for my birthday I chose to go walking along the seashore, many responded with horror.  “Wasn’t it cold?” they asked.  “Yes,” I said, “and windy too.  So I had to keep my head down.”  And this is what I saw.
