This  is a campground as well.  Stop by for a night or too and take in a few walks along the shore and don’t forget to look for JT’s ARTWORK made by her pretty fancy paws.

Damn Dam

100_2870

This has been here hiding in the woods since the 50’s

When you get close to the actual dam , it is posted  KEEP OUT

The woods before it were not

Now there is an old part and then another concrete structure that is very long and very tall, all it’s for is to hold water in the lake so they can boat and they drain it over and over into this small tiny stream each year so they do not have to pull their docks up and out of the way.

This stream is the one that makes my southern boundary, which is being destroyed .  Year after year so then can keep their stationary DOCKS.

I never knew that this was 3 miles out in the woods behind my property and if it failed it would be catastrophic, we would all die down stream in minutes.

Such a pretty place but they do not want to follow regulations the state wants them to.  I thought I had problems.  Well next I will  find out how often it is checked,  as our state is cutting budgets and bridges are crumbling  what about DAMS?

Yes,  I worked my way around to a place where I could get a different view of a dam,  that could truly wipe us out downstream.  I am now scared as we have had a few earthquakes, a couple of tornadoes and many hurricanes and this sits 3 miles behind me

Another View of Rye Harbor

Lobster Boats

 

Brrr it was so cold this morning but my other half asked me to wake him by 5:00 AM so he could head over this way.  He wanted to metal detect during low tide.  I know I should have gone, if for no other reason than to watch the sunrise and get a few photos to share.  I was warm and toasty and looking forward to some coffee, which I would have to pass on since there are no public bathrooms open in this area at this time of the year.  Silly really when you see the amounts of residents and tourists that walk our shores each and every day. Snow, rain or sleet looks the same as a warm spring day. They flock here by the droves.  Rye is loved by dog owners as well as surfers.  See both are allowed here.

 

I see where the Northwest will get snow and rains, CA too.  Wy and ID will receive snow, just what they are looking forward to in Jackson Hole as their mountains are getting ready to open up their lifts.  We have mountains open for snowboarding and skiing over here in the Northeast as it has been so cold they have been putting down a nice base.  They say by Thursday, Thanksgiving, it will be BEAUTIFUL!  At our home it will be in the 50’s,  though we will share our meals where our pup JT was born, so it may be only in the 40’s there but that is still OK by me,  any day I do not have to shovel my way out the door is a Good Day!  Texas will enjoy temps in the 80’s oh how I wish I was in the BIG D!  I really must get into this winter mindset or I will never leave the house.  When JT and I went out to fill the feeders,  for our feathered friends,  she must have loved the icy frost on the pads of her paws  as she ran to her basketball and wanted us to have a game!  I was just in slippers and a nice warm robe so you know I said “Latter JT” and headed to the door!  We have a huge basket of nice clean as well as warm toys just inside the door for her to play with.

 

 

Have a great day or night everyone

Beautiful November Day in Rye NH

Rye NH
November and boats still in the water in Rye NH

 

I couldn’t wait to share this beautiful day with each of you, as it is mid November and days such as this one will be far and few between.

I took it last week as we went to walk and metal detect the local beach, this time north of us. We have only 18 miles of coastline in NH and for the most part we do have access to our shore.

We have rocky areas but here and there we have sandy beaches to walk, suntan on, even fly kites.

In this stretch we have an Ice Cream stand, boatyard and a state park or two.  It is not built up with lots of businesses or homes though some of the homes along 1A are gorgeous there are still some built very modestly.  They are down to earth people who enjoy the shore on a bright warm summer day or in the middle of a nor’easter.  We really are hardy souls up this way.

This was November, Veterans Day and it was 70 degrees F.  Wow what a gift for those who are not looking forward to many months of cold and snow, me being one of them.  I will walk the beach this winter but I will bundle up and not stay out there too long, as JT doesn’t wear boats.

I will always have the camera with me but you knew that. I will try to show you another season of NH life.  You have seen all my pretty spring flowers, summer beach scenes and of course the fall color we are known for but winter in NH you will just have to see .

We are here for the FOUR SEASONS after all, me on the other hand wish I headed south with my Hummingbirds.

 

Peace and Love

Yanking Dams AGAIN

Rivers Rising

Headed to another dam

 

 

 

 

 

They put up gates to keep people out!                                            Signs, Signs Everywhere a Sign

We busted Beaver Dams The State busted 100 year old dam MR.Folsom built

 

Well  more and more of our yard was being taken way by the river rising so we set out today to see if we could do anything.

We found two spots slowing water badly and flooding whole area.  So we took a piece of one dam out to drop water quickly.

We had lots of rain soon to arrive and they are getting ready to drop the levels of the lake behind us for winter.  So we are

under the gun just to stop from being flooded out.  Chainsaw is next, as we are serious.  So we will tie ourselves off to

keep from being washed downstream.

 

See you soon

In Port

 

Pretty boats  all in a row

 

 

Tucked here and there on their moorings .

 

 

Such a beautiful day to be worried about rain or do they want  privacy?

 

 

Laying wait for their owners to take then out,  on the open water.

 

 

Pirates? I want to be on this one!

 

 

Can’t wait to take her for a boat ride!

 

 

I love finding punches of  COLOR!

 

 

Sailors have always lived a Colorful life

which I have always seen as ROMANTIC.

 

I know it is hard work keeping their boats

clean,fueled up and running good.  The men who fish here

for a living in (MA,USA) are a strong bunch.

Looking for fish, getting what they are worth, fighting storms, loosing traps.

I love fish and appreciate all the hard work , as well as the sacrifices, for us to have a wonderful fish dinner.

 

 

Keep up the good work!
