This morning at Swan Pond was heavy with dew and cool still air. The water’s surface like glass. Clouds seemed more suspended than floating or blowing.
An incredible blessing.
For a few moments the sun appeared before being blocked by thick clouds above the horizon.
One good thing about the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Yarmouth is that the swans clear out of the areas near route 28 and congregate far from the commotion. This makes them easier for me to get close to further up Swan Pond.
I have been here many times but feel I could or should have come here more often.
The board walk is still closed off because of damage it took in a storm earlier this winter. But it was still a great night. Great views without freezing or being eaten alive by mosquitoes. And a big not quite full moon.
I haven’t followed the weather the last day or so. Sometimes the changes come so fast that relying on a weather report for hour to hour changes is too tedious.
This morning, at least for a while as the sun rose, there was wind, clouds and sea mist.
This afternoon the sun is blocked by heavy clouds. The wind is blowing pretty good. I watched this group of geese cross Swan Pond at a leisurely pace.
The weather warmed up and was brighter. This made for a great late afternoon walk.
Chunks of ice rest on the beach, too heavy to return to the water. They dot the shore for as far as you can see.
Looking as if measured and cut, some chunks float on the calm water and become islands for birds to take their prey.
Even the clouds seem exquisitely designed.
If it’s not covered with snow, it’s covered with ice.
Sometimes painful to be out in this environment but beautiful to see.
