For all the warm summer evenings where the atmosphere was heavy and the light created a pastel hue.

The horse shoe crab would roll itself up and let the tide take it in. Then, it would lay flat once it moved up the shore and near some rocks. Here is a link to their fascinating lives: Horse Shoe Crab

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.

It’s been a while since the beaches opened up and here in Maine I noticed that the ocean had a much greener hue to it than usual. There were intense heat waves this Spring that must have been good conditions for phytoplankton. The temperature of the water was surprisingly warm for June, yet hardly any people and no one swimming.

20200426_115427It’s here at the Great Bay in Durham where many of the rivers and streams of southeastern New Hampshire end up. This bay is an tidal estuary that resides ten miles inland from the Atlantic Coast, being one of the farthest natural estuaries from the ocean.
