We live in such a beautiful area! We are on the North Shore of Massachusetts, blocks from the ocean. In spite of the bitter winter weather, we do try to make an effort to get out there and appreciate it, even if we can only stand it for a few minutes. The ocean in winter is a special thing. Sometimes the water seems almost thick and sluggish. We’ve seen the ocean steaming on warmer days and the waves freeze on railings on the coldest of days. Every day I look forward to seeing what the ocean looks like today.
