The weather actually warmed up a bit so we went out on a day trip to Orleans. On the way home, we saw there was so much more ice than just a couple days before, so Russell took me to the parking lot at the Herring Run, one of the rest areas on the hill above the water, and over to the park here in town so I could get my shots. This pic is crossing the Sagamore Bridge looking at the Sandwich end.
These were taken at the Herring Run. The ice was flowing right to left, from Buzzards Bay into Cape Cod Bay.

Saw this barge coming when we were at the rest area, so I waited in the chilly wind for it to get a bit closer.
Looked really neat cutting a swath through the ice. Russell figured it'd be no problem to make it to the park before the barge did, so we went straight to town to wait.
The water was super slushy and sounded carbonated and fizzy as it slowly flowed by.
I would imagine that this is some of the ice breaking up, that was at Monument Beach and Scraggy Neck.
The barge is just going under the Bourne Bridge. It was nice out but I was glad I had my winter coat cause the wind was brisk.
