Rose Family Website 03/24/20: Coming Out of Winter
By Thursday 03/26/20 most of the snow had melted and it looks like we may be coming out of winter finally!
Sue just can't wait — she's already out digging in the dirt and there's still a couple of inches of snow over most of the yard!
On the town community page, there was a request out this time for folks to put bears in their windows for parents to drive their kids past for something to do while we are all being asked to shelter in place with the COVID-19 virus ramping up all over the country. Sue grabbed my childhood bear, Beauty, and put it between one of the front windows. I hope some kid got a kick out of it!
The medal Beauty has pinned to his chest is from a 1963 sailing regatta race that my dad and I placed in sailing our 12 foot Penguin class sailing dingy, Ding—Ho.

Friday the 27th, the weather was so nice that Sue and her friend Gail met up down at the beach in Rye to walk. Because of the COVID-19 worsening situation, they kept far apart, and were careful not to interact with anyone else.
As you can see, it was really windy at the beach, and Sue is struggling against it, gripping her pull over
Sue captured this terrific picture of of the waves crashing against the rocks with Whaleback Lighthouse off of Portsmouth Harbor in the background.
Things are getting so critical with COVID-19 that the governor has ordered a shelter in place order starting at midnight until May 4th I think it is....
This will be the last venture down to her happy place at the beach for Sue for a long time, so I'm glad that it was such a beautiful day for her.
