Over the years I have used New Year's Day as an excuse to wander with my camera, visiting places that provide a calming environment for contemplation. Yesterday's wander was in the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island (along the northeast coast of Massachusetts).
As I walked the beach late in the morning yesterday the wind grabbed my hat and threw it into the ocean. The ocean kindly returned it to me on the next inbound wave. It was crazy windy out there!
It was mid-way between high tide and low tide, with running water on the beach making it a challenge to get to the ocean's edge. The wind was howling at 30 miles per hour and higher. Sand was swirling, hitting exposed skin. Walking to the south was easy while walking to the north was a bit of a challenge. Regardless of the conditions, it's always a good day to walk at Parker River!
Does anyone here share my wandering habits? Where were you on New Year's Day?
