This particular evening the water was really warm and there were quite a few people still swimming as the sun went down.

After noticing these pictures I never posted, it got me thinking about the contrast of weather. Currently it is so very cold and snowy.  I’m not yearning for summer, but it’s nice to know it will be here again.

Tranquil Seavey Creek is a salt water marsh and stream in Northern Rye, New Hampshire, just next to Odiorne Point State Park. It fills up as the tides come in from the Atlantic Ocean by way of the Piscataqua River.
