hard to tell but may be Oleander. Very common in coastal areas.
My proto pics (and a few Model RR) in Kenw's Gallery
Have you broken any rules today? .....why not?
Looks like Sumac to me.

I think we have narrowed it down to a Juniper, red berried elder, and a Lilac.
I just wish I had a better photo of the bush I'm trying to identify.
As a gardener on the other side of the ocean I think I can write that it cannot be a juniper because it doesn't flower....also a lilac looks to me not possible because in nature/wild they don't flower that red and at that time of year( mostly flowering in late spring! so I think it could be only the red berried elder( sambucus racemosa)
Because it has to grow solitairy in may be hard weather conditions it has not that tall wide growing twigs...may be some animals did eat the top/ends of it???
Of course just my 2 euro cents about this matter...;-)...
And I still follow your threads! =)

Really hard to tell what that bush is without a close up picture of the leaves and flowers.
In New Jersey there is the Rugosa rose (Rosa rugosa) that grows along the coast and can become quite large. It could be this.
Here is a link to coastal plants:
There are more web sites like this that can be found with a google search.

Your two Euro cents are much appreciated and I also check on your threads. I emailed the image to a botanist on the east coast to see if he can identify it... oh the suspense...
In the meantime I'm experimenting with materials in order to create a wrack line for the shore on my diorama.
