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:

Just when the Earth is coming alive…

One Miss Mother Nature likes to keep you on your toes and throws a few curve balls just as you think, “Hey this is it! Spring is Coming!”  The flowers and bugs, and raging rivers are a mere illusion of her plans. Even though Spring is officially here in a short 12 days, she must have thought it was time to dump a foot or more of the white stuff just so we know she is charge!

In my head there is a wonderful Beach with white sand and a blue / green ocean, and the temperature never drops below 80 degrees! My bottom is in the sand and my toes are in the water, and life is good! My song of the day? Follow the link below. Knee Deep by The Zac Brown Band ft. Jimmy Buffett

It Was Nice To See The Ocean Tonight…

Tonight we went to one of Brett’s friends from one of his jobs, houses to hang out and so they could catch up. It was nice to see that the Ocean was her back yard! I snapped a few pictures with my phone so I am sorry ahead of time for the poor quality of them. But it was a nice night nonetheless.

I want a house where the Ocean is my front or back yard! I Yearn for it! I need it!

Just imagine a Summers morning waking to the sound of the waves crashing upon the shore as you step outside with your morning coffee and newspaper…the most perfect start to any day! Although it isn’t without regret with the seasonal storms and the ocean front cold air at times!

This on the eve of yet another winter weather storm weekend ahead! Last weekend we got about 6″ of the white shit, the weekend before 31.5″, this weekend calls for about 1-6″ so all in all nothing but seriously after seeing the Beach tonight I WANT SUMMER!

February 12, 2012

After Friday’s horrific Fury by none other than one Mother Nature, and her 31.5″ of snow, we received rain today. It was, to say the least refreshing, to feel the warm temps mid 40’s. The sidewalks are still not cleared and so School has been cancelled since Friday. I have no pictures to share regretfully, I do however have video from beginning to end including a hardworking Wood Pecker on South Street. I am just not too sure how I can post it yet since I have the free option, perhaps through You Tube. There are area’s where the snow was waist deep, and even shoulder deep I am 6’…

My question is when have we started naming winter storms and who comes up with them anyways? Nemo really? All I can think of is “Finding Nemo” and the little Clown Fish…Today’s winter storm was named “Orko” Which forces an image of a Killer Whale in my Cerebral Cortex. And why are they both Ocean related? So many questions…

They are threatening us with more snow for Wednesday night into Thursday. JOY! We have been blessed with a good Winter so far though, so I really have no reason to gripe! It just seems like out of nowhere mother Nature said to herself hey I missed New England…let’s bury them!

At least I have a potential break from this wretched Winter madness. I may be in Oklahoma for a few weeks or a month working with a Hospital who has upgraded to the system we used at my former place not too shabby either the pay is right and the work is already known to me! Oklahoma here I come! Even though I will be working it will be a Vacation from this snow and winter! And truth be told I could really stand a get away for myself for a bit!

Well as I type there is a monster bearing down upon me, it has Progressed into a Blizzard Watch for my area…I am looking at a total of 16″- 24″+ So not impressed! I have several large candles and am ready for cooking on the Balcony should it come to that. This is a classic Blizzard / Nor Easter everyone is just so fired up cause we haven’t had a snow storm this large in a few years…C’Mon People we are New Englander’s we know the sit is gonna fall during the winter…it is snow…get over it! I ain’t happy either but seriously no need for a panic, it isn’t going to be anywhere nearly as bad as the Blizzard of “78”…

Pictures and maybe video to follow!

Stay tuned…
