Sandy Bay - Rockport
Another beautiful day! Not a cloud in the sky! And Mrs. Trashpaddler and I were in our boats floating upon the waters of Sandy Bay in Rockport, Massachusetts. For me, the theme song for this day would have to be Fred Neil's Everybody's Talkin' . The lines that echoed through my head were: I'm going where the sun keeps shining, through the pouring rain, going where the weather suits my clothes, banking off of a northeast wind, sailing on a summer breeze, skipping over the ocean like a stone.
The summer of 2010 will be tough to top weatherwise.
Paddling through Straitsmouth Gap, I came upon this blue heron who must have had a hankering for seafood today...
Just the other day, I was looking at a cormorant on the Assabet River. Perhaps these guys decided to swap locations for a bit.
We went ashore briefly at Gap Cove for a snack and an impromptu trash patrol ensued....
A lucky number of 7 empty containers were recovered from amidst the washed-up seaweed. The modest haul posed briefly back at the Old Granite Pier...
There were 7 recyclable containers (5 redeemable). YTD total = 4358.
