Sandy Hook Life Saving Station

...Regarding the previous two images; it seems no one read my tags. The 'slitherer' was shooting
images of that turquoise classic car. I thought the color gave it away, but obviously not. <grin>

Later a park ranger we were visiting with at sunset shared there had been an accident farther
south on the park road. "Something involving a classic car," he said. Uh, oh.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Well..regarding previous post, the choices were many and different, considering the ideas of each viewer.
Nicely covered tower, I assume these are wooden plates (?) playing the part of tiles. What I like here are the tiny white-framed windows, they make a pleasant contrast against the brown on the wood.
That "hat" on top calls to the birds, they find a love sanctuary up there (or so I think!).

@Japanalia: The building is covered with beautiful, weathered, wooden shingles.
I too, like the small windows with their white frames ... colonial architecture that I love.
Sometimes they put spikes on top of buildings like this to keep the birds away due to the mess they make.
I couldn't see what this one looked like from above. (Further investigation shows a square peaked roof) ;D

Love those shingled walls and the bird.
I think the slither confused us because of the person walking past with crutches, but anyone who slithers is ok in my book Judy ;-)

@Doug: I believe the man on crutches was the owner of the antique car, Doug.

Sorry for being so "scratchy head" about the previous post :-) I hope the accident wasn´t a case of flattened photographer !!
What sort of lifesavers are based at this tower,lifeboats,lifeguards,mountain rescue ? It´s a lovely bit of architecture.

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: No problem, Ant ... you certainly were not alone "scratching". ;D
It used to be an active Coast Guard station, but is now a museum.

I like how the little bird is overwhelmed by the gigantic tower.

Beautiful framing with the bird . I noticed the car yesterday but thought he was too far of it !
