Photograph of Pinkie (Ellen Lorene) Lemberger standing on the sand, near the water, and looking out at the ocean. She stands left-of-center with her back to the camera and faces towards the right. Her right hand is raised up to her brow and the left hangs at her side. She wears a dark skirt that is billowing in the wind, a dark jacket and a hat. Her shadow is cast behind her on the left. At right, a wave breaks as it approaches the shore. Two parallel trenches extend from the lower right corner towards the center of the photograph where they disappear. In the far distance on the left, utility poles appear to extend in a line parallel to the shore. A barely visible pier sits on the horizon in the center of the photograph.
