Last Friday in 2011

Posted on | December 30, 2011 | 5 Comments

We been taking it easy this week and resting from holiday travel down to New York. I received a few e-mails asking for wintry Marblehead photos. Sorry to disappoint but it’s been really mild this winter in southern New England. We saw a few snowflakes fly in late October but mostly it’s been rain with temperatures hovering in the low 40’s.

I had high hopes for some fluffy stuff this weekend but according to the current forecast we’re getting more rain. I’m not going to complain; I don’t mind the relief from the high heating bills. Maybe snow in January? Below snapshots from my sunset walk on the last Friday of 2011.

Looking for snowy photos? See snapshots from December 2009 and 2010.

    Oh Thank You , nice old rumply Yankee land. I love the paintless shingles and fishing shacks, and saltboxes and the twinkle of the town in winter.
    It was 110 yesterday and may even be a bit hotter today, and the sun sets at about 8:30. Happy New year from the antipodes.

    Love Old Marblehead. Beautiful little seaside town that my family is from. It looks so different than San Diego where I live! It has a certain something about it. Love your blog, Katy. I’ve been following it for a very long time now it seems. I think you would have a wonderful magazine if you thought in that direction. Thanks for the whoopie pie recipe and now the Joe Frogger recipe. You really are such an interesting girl – so many interests! Happy New Year to you, your family and “the house!” Susan In San Diego.
