A Dock in Winter's Icy Grip, Bartlett Pond, White Horse Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

On my return to White Horse Beach from warm and sunny Mexico, much of Bartlett Pond is still frozen over.  This dock rests firmly in the ice. It may not be warm outside but, at least it's a sunny day.

It's about 15 degrees F this morning - colder than I like. Of course, anything below 60 is colder than I like.  

The ice has not shifted the dock away yet this year.  Some years, it is upside down or otherwise askew or displaced. 

Kayaks ready for a ride and gardens still frozen solid.

Proof that spring is coming - a small patch of green - getting greener as the days get longer.


  1. Hello. I like the contrast between sun-bathed Mexico and this winter's frozen US East Coast. I also enjoy your good-quality photos that match the interesting texts. Here in Provence (southern France), we haven't even seen a mite of the white stuff, at least in the plain. Best regards. H.

    1. Huberaime, Nice to hear from you. I thought you had left the blogging world last year?
