a beach walk

Listen... can you hear the waves?

Today's by the ocean walking destination was Crane Beach, in Ipswich. It's the middle of three places along the northern Massachusetts coastline that call to me for frequent visits, sandwiched on the north by Plum Island and on the south by the rocky shores of Cape Ann.

I arrived about an hour after high tide. There were some sections of beach that were still pretty soggy with other sections starting to provide firm footing. The temperature today felt like spring even though we are close to the winter solstice, a good day for walking on the shore.

I clearly wasn't the only person who thought it was a perfect day for a walk on the beach!
