Snapshots during the snowstorm. Snow fell at a quick clip and was deeper than I expected. I saw two snow plows stuck and digging out. Today will be a heavy shovel that neighbors may need help with.

Salt Island Road to Good Harbor Beach- snow deeper than my boots on the dry sand
Snow blue ice in the tucks and shadows, and trees coated like Kancamagus Highway

winter shower 🙂
High tide by the Good Harbor Beach footbridge, one day ahead of the anticipated rare lunar trifecta, aka “Super Blue Blood Moon”.
ducks sought drier grounds
and a frost weathered shell-cracked horseshoe crab. Sequential views and hues in response to requests for Wingaersheek Beach photographs.
I needed a flashlight at first, mostly for the ice, long stretches in the parking lot then frozen ice scoops in the dry sand. I waited for sunrise, returing to spots I’ve favored since I was a little girl, adding glances back in the direction of Wheeler’s Point, where my parents lived, and over picnic boulders and slide pools out to Annisquam Lighthouse. The light was simultaneously a ring of orange mauve fire and rosy pale violet gray. More photos:
