Joining ‘Cape Ann Light’

“We are attendants to the light” – Les Bartlett


Married and living in Lanesville, with an ocean kayak, putting in at Lanes Cove…often.

And then there was a single moment at twilight, headed out into Ipswich Bay when this occurred: water level.

I’m taking a brief break from the ‘Yearning and Longing,’ series to interject this 2 panel of Lanes Cove Breakwater with the current sea smoke.
Although the sea smoke is no match for what we experienced in 2004, it is still a strong background comment upon the broken up breakwater.
And the -6° with wind chill was enough to take my fully charged camera battery down in about 10 minutes. [click on the 2 panels to get a larger view.]
