I’m enjoying my first New England blizzard, and it’s a good one! Work got cancelled so my roommate Anna and I bundled up and headed out to – where else?- the beach. Thankfully, we had all of our winter hiking gear to stay warm, dry, and nearly windproof for the hour and half we spent exploring our snow-covered neighborhood.
Walking down the road becomes a big adventure with the high winds and snow.
The waves crashing over the snow banks at the edge of the beach. Fantastic!
Anna joining me on the beach! The snow was piled high and not packed down, so we were falling in up to our knees.
The shoreline with a snow spray!
Water breaking over a piece of driftwood.
And over some ice- and snow-covered rocks.
Catching a gust of wind! Anna and I actually ended up walking backwards to keep our faces and hands out of the wind.
A tiny peninsula that’s mostly bog. Seagulls kept on trying to fly by it, but they were having trouble going forward against the wind.
Back in the neighborhood streets and protected a bit from the wind! There were a good number of people out shoveling driveways and it ended up being a fun neighborhood walk, though I was glad to get back into our warm apartment!
