Blustery Sundays

Saturday's gorgeousness was swept away by Sunday's blustery winds. The weather reminded Cole and I of our college study abroad in the UK...cold, rainy, windy, but gorgeous. We decided to keep it local and do some more touring in our town. I can seriously never get enough of the beauty Marblehead has around every corner. When we move in August, I am going to be choking back heaving sobs. So in order to soak up as much beauty as possible, we decided to take a walk down to Gas House beach and, since it was low tide, continue onto the little island.

Where's the Beach?

Well, we didn't end up going to the beach yesterday. Since we're moving in two months, I decided not to buy the town beach pass this year. I was hoping we could sneak in before they start charging, but alas, we didn't get our act together in time. Thankfully, all was not lost.

Instead, we decided to explore the Weir Hill reservation in North Andover. After hiking up a seriously steep hill, thinking I was going to have a heart attack, we were rewarded with a glorious view. Taking a breather and some pics, we headed back into the woods to find our way to Lake Cochichewick, where we found a little secluded beach to cool our feet and the perfect branch to climb on.

Cole and I are headed to the beach today, where we will be sipping our contraband G&T's and debating whether or not it's worth going for a dip in the freezing Atlantic. Probably not.
