Saturday afternoon 11/16/13, Sue and I bundled up and drove over to Adams Point on Great Bay to the Jackson Estuarine Research Laboratory. There are all sorts of trails through out the 80 acre Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, one of which we took, and goes down to the bay and hugs the shoreline, circling the entire peninsula.
Sue used both her regular as well as long lenses to capture the sun as it dropped below the dense tree line across from us to the west. The diversity of colors in not only the sky but across the gently rippling waters of the bay were something I've never experienced. And all the while, the squawking of geese and other water fowl filled the quite of this secluded point of land which divides Little Bay from Great Bay.
In fact, on Friday 07/20/2001, Colin and I sailed my 23' Alberg sloop Linnet's Wings past Adams Point for a day of sailing on Great Bay. We returned to Adams Point, dropped the hook, and spent a magical night under the stars. I think I've only been out to Adams Point on land once before. Not sure why that is, but it's a beautiful place, and one which I'll be sure to return to more regularly.
