See the Sea
I just had a hankering to see some July pics as we go thru a cold blast n burst of snow with a front.
Taken at my fave Beach in July 2010, it faces south into the Gulf Stream fed waters of Buzzards Bay n follows the line of Hog Island Channel, the shipping lanes toward the New Bedford area of the state, (channel located at the center of the horison).
Yep, it works- I feel warm just looking at it for a few minutes.
Most folks just see a ton of open water, but I can pick out bits of familiar lands, spits, rocks, n lighthouses across the way, n also vessels way out there. When I was a teen I got to traverse that entire zone in a small Boston Whaler boat with my water pals. Even that open space holds dear memories for me.
I'll try to remember those warm fuzzies as I trudge back to another night of work in the crusty ice crystals before I finally end my work week. I hope to get back to that wonderful place soon, even in the cold. It's been too long-
