View from our window...

We love our view. We have the Boston skyline in the distance, a beautiful view of the Neponset River and some of the harbor islands, and can see all the way down to Hull. We can see everything!!

Although all of that is exciting, our favorite spot to watch is just under our window. Its a small portion of the last saltwater marsh in Boston and is frequented by several cranes, ducks, and the occasional heron. Today when I woke up, I looked out the window to see a very flooded marsh, it was obviously high tide. It was cool to see, because the water almost reached the road.
Since we've moved in, we have never seen the water this high!

So things settled down throughout the day and I was able to get this shot of the marsh during low tide.
A much more normal view...

So that's our view, one of the very cool aspects of living so close to the ocean, and why we love living in Boston. Our view is very rarely the same!
