|Day 19: Storm surge. I didn't predict that wave|
We had a nor'easter blow through during the early morning hours of April 19, leaving a wild and angry sea behind. The winds were still quite strong for 30 Days of Biking, as I headed out for an afternoon spin. I didn't go very far. I stopped at Phillips Beach to take some photos of the fast and high surf, and got caught by a wave! It was ice cold. I ended the ride soon after, heading home in my cold, wet clothing and shoes.
|The waves were whipped up into a froth|
Days 20 and 21 were rides through Beverly and Salem, respectively. The wind was pretty strong both days, remnants of the nor'easter earlier in the week. I stopped by Lynch Park for ride #20 to see if anything was blooming in the walled garden there. It was overrun with a dozen school-aged kids playing hide and seek amongst the trees, shrubs, and statuary. They were having a great time.
