Big Waves and Strong Tide

We had a fine summer day this January 24th, 2015 with the sky clear and warm temperatures at Steamer Lane. I was wearing my best winter shorts and my good sandals. Other than that Saturday didn’t work out quite like I expected it to. The low tide looked an awful lot higher than your typical […]
