I was cold all day with the exception of the opportunity to play some music with local folks at a music jam. After a relatively warm winter, I awoke to a sub zero temperature (Fahrenheit). It seems like a good idea to post some warm photos. We attended a wedding in Bimini in May of 2009. Here are a few photos depicting warmer climes. Enjoy.

Brrrr, 16 degrees (-9 C) outside. Many of you have to dig out of snow drifts this morning Surprisingly here in New Hampshire I see bare ground in the back yard which is fine with me.

The photo theme for today is #BeachSunday and I’m including some photos from 2013.  In just 6 months all that snow will be gone and you’ll be on a beach somewhere.

I’m not a fan of crowds, but I love the beach. My strategy is to take a stroll until it thins out a bit.

Beach Sunday

Shop Amazon – Give the Gift of Amazon Prime

Good morning readers, did you have your coffee yet?

The winter continues to be weird here in New Ipswich. It’s January 10th and it is raining, not snowing. Temperatures are comfortably above freezing. It’s not natural.

The photo theme for today is Beach Sunday. I’ve gone into the archives and picked a few analog photos that I took on the West Coast when I was in the Navy. In retrospect I wish I had taken notes about the exact dates and locations for these photos, I can only guess.

Spring is 61 days away

Good morning, another drastic change in the weather from yesterday. Instead of zero temperatures we are supposed to have heavy rains today, but I suspect it will start as freezing rain, the bane of trees and power lines.  We’ll wait and see what surprises nature will provide.
