ANNISQUAM LIGHTHOUSE Sunset ©Kim Smith 2015What a treat, these last lingering days of Indian Summer! I am trying to get out of doors as much as possible to enjoy the fleeting amber-gold moments. The photos below were taken standing at the mouth of the Annisquam, looking towards Wingaersheek Beach.

High and Dry

You can keep on pulling on that anchor line, but I’m quite certain the boat isn’t going to budge.


There are worse places in the world to be stuck than the back side of Wingaersheek….and I’m fairly certain this guy knew that too. He got that sucker WAAAY up there.  Assuming it was on purpose, he gets a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 How to Make Summer Weekends Last into September.  If it wasn’t on purpose, well, he still gets a 10….but, on a scale of 1 to 10 How Much Do You Agree That Boaters Should Need Licenses to Operate a Vessel.  

It ins’t over yet, Peeps!

WTF! Crocodile on Wingaersheek Beach!

Breaking News!  Brenda Malloy was walking on Wingaersheek Beach around noon today and discovered this partially eaten crocodile (or alligator) carcass.  She estimates its length to have been at least 8′ long, as more than 4-1/2′ of it still remains.  What do you folks out there see – crocodile, alligator, baby sea serpent, and where did it come from?  It was right above the high tide mark, so if you want to see it, get out there before dark.  It is located on the beach in front of the stucco mansion with the red roof.

Found on the Hard Drive

I found this photo of a Painting I did of Annisquam Light seen from Wingaersheek Beach. I donated it a couple of years a go to a St. Ann’s School Auction. It reminded me a little of a Beautiful photo Marty posted recently.

Renate’s Red Fox Kit Photos from Several Years Ago

Renate's Back Yard

GMG Reader Renate writes: “I am writing to you today to tell you that I also noticed the absence of foxes in the past two years. We live out near Wingaersheek Beach and we used to see the foxes crossing the big meadow, that is used for parking in the summer and we even had a fox walk up our driveway, with a dead bunny in his mouth, to go behind our neighbors property, where she had young ones waiting for food, I am sure. I woke up a couple of nights ago to the screaming of coyotes (it is probably mating season), not a pleasant sound. A couple of years ago, we had a coyote leave her young ones behind our house to go hunting for food and I was able to take a couple of pictures. I am attaching one for you to see if these were in fact young coyotes. Some people think they are foxes, but I think they are too big in the legs. What do you think?”

Renate, I believe these are Red Fox kits. Thank you for sharing and sending the photos!

Lost & Found

Another beautiful evening on Cape Ann! I enjoyed a nice walk on Wingaersheek. I love coming home to this…

A thoughtful person found a pair of little shoes left behind and put them in the “lost & found” at entrance 1. Come claim them if they’re yours!

Coconut went for a dip in the tide pool. If it was a little warmer, I would’ve joined her. Summer is just around the corner, I can feel it.
