While freezing, it was too pretty to not stop at Good Harbor Beach last night to snap this photo. There was something about the juxtaposition of the snow and the sand at sunset that made us sit for a longer while than planned.
I’d rather it be July, but pretty nonetheless.
Last night’s red sky was not today’s sailor’s delight. Is that old adage true more often than not I wonder?
Red sky at night, sailors’ delight.
Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.

Well, if this isn’t a lovely way to end the day I don’t know what is.
Thank you to Paul and Betsey Horovitz for helping us see what it looks like to end their day at Lighthouse Beach in the Annisquam.

How fortunate we are to be experiencing a delightfully warm El Nino December although many regions in the rest of the country are not faring as well as we in the Northeast. Thinking about where we were almost to the date a year ago at this time…see the end of this post.
