Pilgrim Memorial State Park, Plymouth Ma. March 5, 2013

After Ellisville Harbor we ventured to the Plymouth Rock Area. Pilgrim Memorial State Park. It was also very cold here with a constant wind. Tons of wildlife to be seen, mainly of the bird variety, after all it is a beach front what do you expect?

We ventured up the same steps we did in an earlier post toward Burial Hill, http://oursharedadventures.blogspot.com/2012/11/plymouth-ma-bretts-tour-april-202012.html

but headed towards the park area, The Jenny Grist Mills area. We saw many ducks feeding and just chillin. Brett must have taken a thousand pictures of them, I will be only posting a few. I focused my attention upon Oliver’s Great Uncle Frank. Who is Oliver you may ask? Find out here:

Ellisville Harbor, Plymouth, Ma. March 5, 2013

Today Brett and I decided to take his camera in search of Seals to Plymouth. More specifically, Ellisville Harbor. Although it is still Winter and the breading time for Seals we sadly saw none. We did however have a great day! It was nice to leave the house as we haven’t really done much this Winter, as we are both usually in Hibernation during this Season…

I must add at his point that the day was nice with regards to weather, it  was about mid 30’s close to 40. Once we hit the beach however; Winter was present once again. There was a constant wind, a cold one, from the North East! It was steady at about 10 – 15 mph, so the temperature dropped very quickly, and the beach is best walked barefoot, not in boots. Just noting a personal experience here. It was nice however; to see the beach again and remember our past Summer’s adventures.

Despite the cold we captured some amazing shots of the beach! From broken stairs to sheer cliffs, and of course the Ocean!

March 4, 2013 War Memorial Park ~The Graveyard – Built in1683~

First and foremost; I have to say that the weather outside is a disgrace! There is gale force winds up to 55 mph with sustained winds around 20 – 30 mph…with snow and rain…If it were all snow there would easily be 6-12′” or more by morning…YUCK!

Moving on…

What Adventure wouldn’t be complete without  a trip to a Graveyard? Brett’s adaptation to the day. He snapped a few shots at the park and surrounding streets but the graveyard was his “element” . I actually enjoy this area as it is very Historical Funny though the whole “History” thing eludes my brain. It is pointless at best, dates and times to memorize, along with names and events…GAG ME NOW!

However; When Actual History is given in a point of view other than the School regimented monotony, it IS actually pretty interesting.

Rumor has it around these parts that there were Vampires in New England, The gates surrounding the Graves were actually not meant to keep people out, but rather to keep things in…So they say…

March 4, 2013 War Memorial Park West Bridgewater ~Life Renewed and Old Lives Mesh~

This day we photographed more than the intricate water ways and rolling water rapids. We also took in some “Life” pictures, both renewed and old. Traveling through the park it was amazing to see to the water levels so high, but even more amazing was the Earth coming alive again…

There are these purple wild flowers that grow low to the ground such as Crocus seen in an earlier post. They are vibrantly purple. Beautiful signs of Spring’s approach.

After our time at the very beautiful early spring features the park had to offer, we ventured down a few side streets we have followed before. I might note today was freezing! It was hovering around 32 degrees, there was a breeze and my hands were ice, additionally the icicles on my feet had icicles of their own! But I endured!

During our road hike we came across a really refreshing sight. A newly constructed Bird’s Nest! Cows, and the house of Rev. James Kieth, The first Minister of Bridgewater, and more of Earth’s life pushing through the ground to live!

Be sure to check back for the final installment of this day.

March 4, 2013 War Memorial Park West Bridgewater ~The Intricate Water Ways~

So Today we took Brett’s camera to War Memorial as described in yesterday’s post to photograph the water levels. They were as high as yesterday. Still complete with mini rapids. These are the Water ways.

I saved more pictures for future posts! Come on! I can’t spoil you all with the entire day, cause I won’t have anything to post about tomorrow!

The water is so high, even flooding certain sections, I’ll provide a description to certain pictures for explanation…

ENJOY!
