While I was on my run to the store, I decided to detour to the shore and do a little bit of exploring. I found myself at the far end of Riverside Drive, where Herring River meets Nantucket Sound, in West Harwich.
This common eider was stoicly letting the wind and the rain buffet him around the river’s edge. He really looked as though he might enjoy a quiet inland pond better on a day like today.
