It is damn chilly outside.
The mercury is hovering at 9°F right now, a 48-hour high. Hell, this feels like a heatwave compared to the 1°F and 30mph winds of Monday.
Oh well, at least it is sunny. The View from the pullout at one of my favorite saltwater beaches.
One of the locals, doin' her best to get back to the sea.
The time of slow water is also the time of ebb on the inner sea. Just as the ice forms a barrier, the long time between falls last and springs first fish form a layer, a strata of the year and a disconnect from our finny friends.
We will be back together soon, friends. This season of cold is just the intermission, the resurfacing, halftime in the big game...
