Good Harbor Beach Footbridge

The footbridge is still out of commission.  Although inconvenient, I think city officials wise to wait out the storm season before repairing the bridge.

      Thanks Anonymous–clouds were overhead where i was standing, but there was a patch of golden sunlight in the distance–not ever too challenging to find the beauty light here on Cape Ann!

    The Footbridge of Life

    thepoetryofpeteralberttodd.weebly.com

    By Peter A. Todd

    The ocean’s tide is a reflection of life
    As our nights are turned into days
    Young people with their hands clung tight
    Searching their hearts for words to say
    Children running and playing along the beach
    Building Sand Castles of their dreams
    The Elders crossing the bridge at day’s peak
    Mirrored by the evening’s moonlight gleam
    The ocean reaching into the shadowed sands
    Erasing the footprints along its way
    Night’s glistening moon, Mirror of God’s hand
    Guiding nature’s course along the bay
    The Footbridge of Life crosses the sands of time
    That we in our hearts must not ignore
    We must treasure life for all that it holds
    For in its passing we gain Heaven’s shore

    How do the dogwalkers get onto the beach? Is the parking lot open?

    • Kim Smith says:

      Yes, the parking lot is open (or at least it has been whenever I take our dog there). Also, if you are a resident, you can park on the far side of the beach, off of Salt Island Road.

    Great photos Kim !

  7. The bridge has emotional meaning for many of us, and I understand the wall in Lane’s Cove is badly damaged as well. Is there a fund we can donate to?

  8. Kim Smith says:

    Hi Carol,

    I would imagine that repairing the footbridge is high on the Mayor’s and City’s list of priorities.

    I haven’t heard anything about the Lanes Cove seawall and don’t recall seeing anything on GMG re. Perhaps if any readers know more about it they will write in.
