My Take on Teddy — pat morss

Teddy was offshore and nothing like our March northeast storms a couple of winters ago, or past hurricanes with a more direct hit. But teddy wasn’t timid.

Water coming over Dogbar breakwater
Waves marching out the breakwater
Wave looming over the Audubon rocks
And breaking
Astronomical tide making gangway uphill to the float at Raymond Beach
Unfortunate Zodiac
Modest waves at Eastern Point light
Coastal wave looking like marble
Windblown sunset wave near the lighthouse

The Morning After- next day storm waves

The Long Beach walkway was dry this morning: Storm Teddy did not surge up and over the seawall. Light debris was deposited on nearly spotless Long Beach. Beautiful rollers were distant as the tide was heading out.

Spotted less than ten shorebirds, three species. These tiny birds are migrating from the arctic and landing to rest and refuel. Give them space if you see them! The few I spotted were flushed off.

A smile path helps wildlife. Walk around (or pause if you have the time)

 

Shorebird visitors hanging out together today (sanderlings, semipalmated sandpipers and semipalmated plovs). Easy to add a smile path when you spot them.

What were you doing at 6:30 am? Workout 5 in the books. Seeing improvement and results!

Another great morning working out with Bo along the Annisquam River. Feel great. Seeing improvement and results (down 11 pounds). Jump rope form much improved.

Good News, It’s Fall

I mean, if the weather has to get colder, let’s look on the bright side. It’s time for pumpkin beer with a shooter of caramel vodka and either a sugar or cinnamon rim….or up your game with a some straight up caramel squirted into the glass. A good friend made me one (or two) of these the other night and they certainly hit the spot.

Prepping and seeding new lawn area time lapse (Narrated) Thanks To Kate and Jimmy Dalpiaz For Doing The Other Two Thirds

 

 

I should note that Kate and GMG Jimmy did a crapload of work the day before!

I’d appreciate any feedback from lawn guys that know what they are doing.

The goal from here is to water-water-water.

For those of you that take care of your lawns, would you care to elaborate on your yearly schedule and what you use to feed your lawns?
