Nor’easter Encore for Surfers — pat morss

Our secondary minor storm came through Saturday and was enough to keep the surf up at Brace Cove.

Waiting for an eligible wave
Up for easy cruising (if you know what you’re doing)
Graceful style – looks applicable to downhill skiing
Second surfer catching a nice wave
Showing off for the first surfer on his way back out
Good form as well
Always good to stay clear of the rocks
The largest wave attempt while I was watching
A very quick descent
And an impressive recovery
But the ocean won this encounter

Jerry Remy has passed away

Reblogged from WCBV:

Jerry Remy, a longtime television broadcaster for the Boston Red Sox and a former standout player for the team, has died of cancer at the age of 68.


Remy had stepped away from his role as the color analyst for New England Sports Network’s Red Sox broadcasts on Aug. 4 to undergo treatment for lung cancer. This was the seventh time the Massachusetts native had been diagnosed with cancer following the initial diagnosis in 2008. His most recent previous cancer diagnosis was in 2018.

On June 11, Remy said he experienced shortness of breath during the third inning of a game between the Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park. He stepped away from the broadcast as a precaution and was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital. He was released from MGH on June 16 and returned to the broadcast booth on June 20.

His most recent public appearance came on Oct. 5, when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the American League Wild Card Game against the New York Yankees.

Eagles Checking In After Nor’Easter

It was wonderful to see an eagle pair return to Magnolia just after the recent storm passed. It felt as if they were checking up on how we were doing. The conditions weren’t ideal for photos or for flight but they put on quite a show for us. I suspect this is the same eagle pair we have seen over the marsh in the recent past. Regardless, it brightened by day without power by quite a bit.
