Yep, surf's up. And there were a couple surfers yesterday. Today we didn't see any. Well, with the exception of these birds!We are in the middle of a nor'easter. Wind gusts exceeding 40 mph, temp around 45°F, loads of driven downpours, and even a bit of sleet. Tides are a tad overly high!Today is also the second, and last, day of Rockport's Harvest Festival. Not so good. No ship this year. Some of the crew from the USS Constitution came up from Boston. They brought a cannon and installed it at the end of T-Wharf. Shot it off every hour between 11 and 4 yesterday. Some of the crews from a few subs stationed at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard were supposed to be here. Evidently a lot of them were no-show. Not nice. Yesterday's weather was brisk and windy but no rain, so outside activities were fine. Not so today.
