Wet Feet

Waves Crashing at 10 AM

Yesterday, my son and I decided to tour the towns of Carver and Plymouth. There were many cranberry bogs, both those that have been picked and those that were waiting to be harvested. After passing through Myles Standish State Park, we decided to visit Plymouth Long Beach. We reach there at 10 AM, which was 2 hours before high tide. The waves were running on the high side and crashing against the retaining wall and splashing over. We photographed this event, along with a pair of Red-tailed hawks hovering overhead.

We then went to Manomet Point to see what was happening in terms of the waves. After that, we decided to return to Long Beach, where the waves were splashing higher in intensity and starting to flood the roadway. I checked the weather forecast and there was a coastal flood warning.  We had parked the car where it looked safe. I was standing on the side of the vehicle when a massive wave splashed over the wall. The water flooded on the roadway toward me and under the car. That is where I got my feet wet. Not only my feet, my socks, my shoes in the lower parts of my pants. Well, I was wet already, so we stayed and continued to photograph the action. Multiple people had also arrived to photograph, mostly using their cell phones.

By the way, I want to wish everybody to have an enjoyable Halloween.
