I gather that Hingham Harbor leaves those white markers attached to the moorings at the end of the season. Makes sense, the narrow pole, if frozen in, would slip through the ice (if we get ice this year).
Remember this rock?
Lucky for them, I measured it past mid-tide. Four foot to bottom today, roughly five feet lower than the shots from August when the kids were diving off the rocks. This shot shows the bottom beneath the cliff.
Rock and hard packed gravel. Ah! to be young and invincible.
As I have mentioned before, the tempeture doesn’t brother me that much, though today it hit sixty. The wind is more of a problem in the winter as the water is 45 degrees. And returning home the conditions changed, the wind picked up quite a bit over the forecast, 10-15 with 20mph gusts. This kicked up the waves from 1 to 2 inches to 5 to 9 inch. With the wind hitting me in the starboard side with the waves coming from the same direction, I got a little wet. Not a real problem, I did wear a wet suit. But the wind picked up the waves breaking on the bow and side and threw the spray into my face. If you want to know what that is like, go out on the porch and lift weights, plug in a fan and have your wife throw a glass of ice cold water in your face every 30 seconds.
I love it! How come I haven’t had any takers to go out this winter?
