We decided to visit our house last weekend after the Nor'easter blew through the Island just to be sure that all was well. Fortunately all was well but it was cold. Our walk on the beach was quite short as the winds brought the temperature down lower -- and we hustled back to the warmth of the house. We did experience a glorious sunset from the back deck -- wish we could have taken a better photo, but you can see the pinks and purples and oranges of the sky as the sun said farewell to the day. We were sad to pack up and leave because even though it was cold, we could still sit in the living room and enjoy the ocean view. Spring cannot come too soon for us.
