Lone Duck on Rock, Cape Ann MA for Happy Blue Monday


The wind has been wild and cold and you can see the roughness of the ocean in the photo above here on Cape Ann. Probably, we will move into Summer and skip the lovely temps of Spring. Mother Nature is so unpredictable. The sun is warm gratefully.
