Hull MA on a Spring Day in February

We were gifted a beautiful day here in SE MA on Saturday. Over the past few weeks, we have had a blizzard with 28 inches of snow dumped here in my town, to some freezing rain and ice storms, to temperatures in the single digits with wind chills below zero. That all changed this Saturday when we got a beautiful sunshiny day with temperatures in the low 60's. I can't express how much I NEEDED this gift from Mother Nature. 
I spent most of Saturday enjoying the outdoors with my camera in hand doing what I love to do with some members of my camera club. We went to Hull MA which is a nearby seaside town. Here's a few of my favorites from the day:

Reminders of Summer along the New England coast:

A little whimsy

I always appreciate and love to photograph different types of clouds

The entrance to Boston Harbor featuring Boston Light and Graves Light behind it

I found this shell earlier in the day and stuck it in my pocket. I used it as a focal point in this next photo using a telephoto lens which blurred the background nicely.

Typical New England scene

Footsteps in the sand

It was a perfect day. The very next day (which was yesterday) it snowed all day with temperatures in the 20's; a 40 degree difference from the day before.
Yes, I love New England!
