Wander down the path and turn to walk across the dunes to the shoreline. Treasures await you. However, turn back and stop. You see her majestic stance against blue skies. She is mesmerizing!
Along the path to the shoreline, turn back and see her majestic beauty.
Get close up. Climb into her being and join the souls of her journey. The light guides and directs those ships and beings a shore. Enticing and memorable she is.
Down that road, turn left at the bend and right at the old oak tree. Park in the area between the two cypress. Walk over to the right and continue through the two magnolias on the dirt path about half a football field. Climb through the gate and you will see her – the Train Lady.
