Today I drove a half mile into the very small village of Westport. It has a community store, some houses and a village green.
I parked my car at the village green, got out and walked across the grass to a steep set of stairs which descended to a beach.
Walking down all those steps was quite easy. The beach itself is actually black sand. I found a little world someone had created by a tiny stream.
The black sand was not compact. It was very difficult to walk on. I kept sinking about 3 inches every step I took.
After the climb back up the stairs, I looked for a place to rest. A bench with a metal sculpture awaited me in a clearing.
A walk outdoors never disappoints; there is adventure and discovery in spades ~ oxo
