10 January




winter in my town


We had some pretty cold temperatures last week -cold enough to turn the water in the sound to slush and create an icy sea fog.

this week it got even colder and the Atlantic ocean that flows into Broad Sound froze.

Frozen waves of salt water!!

not something you see every day.

Dog beach has a little boat that has washed up on shore


i'm not really sure how this has happened


perhaps it washed up with the storm tide and then was stranded

when the tide froze

the downton abbey season started this week

love this

~

my family came over to celebrate my daughter's birthday

we had chocolate fondue

lots and lots of fun

~

i have a two interim classes 

so school started for me this week

  1. Yes , you would be hard to imagine. I was in freezing Canada for 2 winters. I don't want a freezing winter now.

    My weather is like San Francisco.

  2. Cold enough to freeze the sea...now THAT is cold. Golly. It's hard to fathom, and here I sit complaining about the 40 degree cold weather we're having in south Texas. I'm ashamed of myself now. I hope you're able to stay warm inside. That image you shared of your home town is just so unimaginable. I'm glad you shared it tho, it's an eye opener!!

  6. I love Downton Abbey and I'm looking forward to Sherlock. I remember living on Galveston Island on a saltwater lake. It doesn't freeze often on the island, but I was there one year when the saltwater lake froze. Amazing! Love the little boat. Happy Birthday to your daughter. Happy Friday.

  7. Oh I love that poor little boat photo-I always wonder where these things that are washed up on the beach come from, I prefer your beach like this rather then like the other day...

  8. I am just starting Downton Abbey and love it. I really enjoyed the documentary they showed on the history of the castle they film Downton Abbey at. You know, that helped me understand the story line and characters a lot.

  9. Wow, what a neat thing to see ... frozen salt water waves! Thanks for sharing.

    Birthdays are celebrations of those we love and should be special. Glad you had a fun fondue party. Sounds yummy.

    Good luck with your classes.

  11. No, frozen sea water isn't something you see every day! Sort of adds to the random theme?! I missed Downton Abby last week so I'm already behind!

  12. I am glad Downton Abbey is back, there's not that much good stuff to watch on TV. It's hard to imagine frozen waves in the Atlantic, that must be something to see.

  13. Beautiful light in your first photo! I just started watching Downton, I had to get filled in watching the other season's episodes!

  14. That frozen slush water is amazing! Great capture! I, too Love Downton Abbey! Still mad about Matthew, though. ;)

  15. Brrrrr ... it has been very cold here in CT, too! Crazy cold!
    We get a break tomorrow with temps reaching 54* and rain instead of snow!

    Happy New Year!

  16. That really looks ccccold... We're having an unusually mild winter here - rather dull from photographic point of view!

  17. I hope that boat just got loose from somewhere else and was not there from an accident.

    Love Downton Abbey, too...wondering when Bletchley Circle will begin again...

  18. It looks so much colder than us but I think that it probably is a lot colder. We are sheltered by the Rocky Mountains from the freezing arctic winds. I do not know one person who does not like Downton Abbey. It is one of my favorites.

  19. I know the cold must have been hard to take, but the frozen ocean is fantastic to see!

  20. This looks like New England, I love the stranded row boat. I think row boats make a wonderful photographic subject. And I simply cannot get my head around frozen saltwater waves! Have a great weekend!

  21. Love the photo of the boat. Froze salt water would be very interesting.

  22. I don't think I"ve ever seen ice or snow near the ocean before. It has been rather cold in places this year. Great pictures.

  23. Great shots here especially the one with the little boat. Will yes Downton Abbey is quite a topic of conversation. Love it too. It is about 45 in Ky. now.

  24. Frozen seas make me cold right to my bones! The lonely boat is beautiful.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
