Today we had a break in the rain and snow---
....the days are still grey and gloomy but 40 degress. With the threat of more snow and ice to arrive tonight and last through the next three days, I yet again stocked my fridge with food and cupboards with loo paper, as a friend likes to say---then hustled off for a nice long hike on the beach before the storm arrives.
Only to discover that yesterday's storm bought huge waves that breached the dunes and left my own beach inaccessible. In the summer it's fine to wade through a 2 or 3 feet deep pond of coastal flooding but just too darn cold today. And gee, I didn't pack my waders. I actually had to get back into my grocery laden Jeep and drive a mile down the island to what is known as the surfing beach.
Beautiful, in its wintery way....
No treasures though, the sand swept clean and barren.
Spring will be here soon...right? Right.
