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:

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!
