As you may have heard, we’ve had some wild weather lately here in New England. Yesterday’s Nor’Easter brought lots of rain and wind, local flooding, and very high tides. So, when the rain let up, Dale and I went out for a drive to see what we could see. What we mostly saw was water.
The Herring Run in Pembroke. The herring aren’t running yet and it’s probably just as well because the water was rushing in extra rapid fashion. Those fish would have a hard time going up stream, even with the help of the fish ladder. The ground was very soggy but we did walk around a bit. Hopefully we’ll get back when the fish are heading upstream to spawn and I’ll have pictures to show you.
Duxbury Beach. The waves were huge and the wind was blowing like crazy. It was totally worth it, though, for the smell of salt water – it’s been way too long since I smelled that. A few of the roads were slightly flooded but nothing we couldn’t drive across easily in the Jeep. We saw lots of tree limbs down and some pretty substantial local flooding but it was much less severe here than in other places.
After our sight seeing expedition we headed to Plymouth for lobster rolls and then it was home for knitting and vegging in front of the television. All things considered, it was a damn fine day.
