We have been evaluating life on Georgetown recently… one of the items that is surely on the positive side is the fact that we are just 10 minutes away from Reid State Park which happens to be an awesome gateway to the ocean.. ( also a wonderful bike ride when the weather is conducive ).
Today we went to the transfer station – formally known as the dump – this is at least a weekly social event here on Georgetown as it is elsewhere in New England – but maybe we will leave that for another post sometime! On the way home we decided to swing by the wharf at Five Islands – I did not take any pictures there, but we were greeted with the scene of waves crashing around the islands and immediately decided to head to the beach. We were not disappointed. I wish that I was able to load movie clips on this blog – the waves were the biggest that I have seen in our time here on the island..
huge pieces of driftwood were strewn all over the beach.. not the kind that one would collect for a bonfire, but instead, the kind that would demolish the bow of a fast moving boat!
somewhere out there in that large breaking wave there are two surfers – as we made our way down to them we watched as the front half of one of there surf boards washed up on the beach.. they were Colby students, and I think it would be fair to say that they had been pretty beaten up on their ride in. I don’t believe that the one whose board was still intact had any desire to head back out in the water!
It was a great day to visit the beach – a wonderful reminder of how fortunate we are to be able to live on Georgetown Island…
