• Niles Beach Sunset

    By Peter Albert Todd 06/09/98


    I gaze upon the evening sunset
    This outstretched Island of golden sand
    As it reflects along our rocky inlet
    Its majestic beach smoothed by each tides hand
    The shimmering like diamonds of the sea
    As the sun begins to settle in the west
    The Tall Ships sailing through the winter breeze
    As darkness covers at the waters crest
    The mighty waves begin to pound at our shore
    As the nights chill makes the barometer fall
    The call of nature brings its creatures to sing
    The song of winters first mating call
    What a beautiful and glorious sight
    That our father in Heaven brings to me
    It brings to mind of how beautifully bright
    Gods many mansions in Heaven will be


  • One of my favorite views. I grew up in E. Gloucester, just a 5 minute walk to Niles Beach. When the Eastern Point Yacht Club moved from that point on the right, the property was bought by the Rand family. I worked for the rands several summers taking care of their boats and teaching their boys how to sail. Many memories of that area.


  • What nice shot here of the sunsetting niles:-) Dave & Kim:-)
