What a New Year’s day we had here on the RI coast! Blue sky, warm temperatures and a soft breeze with no edge to it whatsoever – in January! After taking down the Christmas tree and making some turkey soup, I took myself down to the beach again, figuring quite a few people would have the same idea.
I was right. There were a few people walking on the sand, and there were some cute dogs, like this 3-month-old puppy named “Hugo.” He wasn’t too sure about going in the water, but he was definitely into his stick.
Someone had left these Christmas decorations on the sand.
The sea was calm and the waves just sort of slipped in gently without a lot of commotion.
It was so balmy that people were sitting outside at the local seafood restaurant eating oysters from the salt pond next door. Yum.
This is kind of how I felt today. Happy New Year, everybody.
