A cold boat ride to Marblehead – had to wrap my shivering dog in my “better sweater”.
Despite the famous saying, familiarity is not always such a bad thing. Neighbors sometimes ask me how I can walk the same route down the beach each day, but what they don’t understand is that the beach changes with every tide. “To find new things, take the path you took yesterday,” wrote John Burroughs. While it might seem that the novelty would wear off during my trips to the osprey nests, the opposite has proven true. I’m constantly surprised by what I see.

The sunset from the boat in Ipswich Bay the other night. And yes, my husband was fly fishing again – this time for bass. No luck though. It’s been a tough summer on the seas. No tuna either.
