We've gotten April off to a very cold start too! But I took a little time to bop around downtown Sandwich one Sunday morning.
This is outside the Glass Museum
There's a cell tower being put up on the steeple and I hope it doesn't mess up how nice the steeple looks.
Dexter's Grist Mill, looking really worse for the wear.
This whole herring run has been redone and a huge, beautiful old weeping willow was taken down. All of the old timers are crushed that the tree is gone....I am heartbroken. Apparently the roots were weakening the rock wall and the only way to do this project was to take the tree down.
Then I drove over to Boardwalk and it was so cold and windy....too cold for my jean jacket. People were quahogging in Mill Creek.
These are oyster cars (that's what Russell called them) and this is the first time that either of us has ever seen any kind of shellfishing in Mill Creek. The creek featured above eventually makes it's way down here and all of the runoff and crap from town gets swept here. I would not eat shellfish from Mill Creek, no way, no how.
On the way back to town, I pulled over near the marshes to get a few low tide pics from that vantage point. When I saw the brickwork like this, I wondered if it was part of the old Glass Factory, which meant I might have a shot at finding chunks of broken Sandwich Glass in the mud. I figured there was no way because I was sure people have picked through it for the past 100 years or so.
So I ventured out onto the mud to get a few snappies.
I never knew there was a little dock out here.
