The bridge to Plum Island is as small and indistinctive as any bridge could possibly be, but nonetheless is etched deeply into my memory as the result of frequent visits and walks here with my family as a child. It's still a great place to visit!
The American Dunegrass pictured above is everywhere, and actually usually off-limits due to nesting piping plovers. A sign near here warns that threatening or harassing the plovers is a federal offense that could result in jail time and/or a $100, 000 fine!
It's a great place to walk with gorgeous ocean views, but when it comes to swimming there are many posted warnings about the riptides which can be quite strong here. Be sure to read the instructions for escaping a riptide if you take a dip!
I'd love to own a house on Plum Island. How much do you think an oceanfront view like this will cost you?
Behind this storefront are a couple of luxury yachts named Captain's Lady II and Captain's Lady III.
Wooden piers don't last forever, and they don't seem to get rebuilt when they fall apart. Not much left of this one!
