Water works

There’s a dredge project taking place off Fire Island this winter to add sand to the beaches east of here.february-32 There’s a barge offshore and it’s pumping sand onto the beach through a big pipe.

This lucky guy is surveying the bottom before the sand is deposited. It was in 20’s today and the wind was blowing about 20 mph. He said he would rather be here than Florida now because there aren’t any sharks.february-342

On the home front, I learned how to cable without a cable needle today from Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitter’s Glossary.  I am forever losing my cable needle so this is very freeing.  Next I’ll have to steek something.

I enjoyed a long walk along the beach today, met a new neighbor and saw a fabulous sunset.  I may have even glimpsed the green flash!
