Weymouth Herring Run
Congratulations to all of the runners who ran the Boston Marathon today!! There is another marathon going on right now,,,,,a marathon of nature. The herring are running!!!! Those of you who are regular visitors to this blog will recall that each Spring tens of thousands of herring make their way from the Carolina coastline back up to Whitman's Pond in Weymouth.....the place of their birth, to spawn. It is one of natures marvels, and I am always excited to witness this each Spring.

Further up the run the Cormorants are in place waiting to catch a meal.
And the Black Crowned Night Herons have returned to town for the same reason.
This blog first began as a 365 day project. It was a lot of fun to post daily, but as life changes and evolves, so has the purpose of this blog. I hope to share with you the things that I love to photograph in and around New England, as well as an occasional glimpse into my everyday life.
I am a Mother, Wife, Daughter, Friend, and Photographer. I also work part time in a local hospital. Thank you for taking this photographic journey with me.
