Surfing

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!Font sizeToday 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.

Looks exhilarating. I like a 'bit of a wind'. Blows the cobwebs away.

I think this perhaps this is a good time to get your piano player finished?

Should be, however....birthday cake to decorate (for a friend of my mom), then get mom to the birthday dinner...out of town during pouring rain and wind. Of course today was a gorgeous (if cool) day and I had to work selling candy.
