Wollaston Beach (Quincy, MA)

We in New England are no strangers to stormy weather.  But, the first stormy weather of the season always seems to catch us off guard.  After all, it was only the first weekend of October.  Much too early for stormy weather.  But, it is hurricane season, after all.  During this first storm of the season, I decided to go to my second stormy destination of the day.

By the time I arrived at Wollaston Beach, the storm had died down quite a bit.  But, it was still pretty windy and wavy.

The water was rocky earlier in the day.  This boat, the Cenzina, was one of three boats that were washed ashore Saturday.

Just like in life, a silver began to appear after the rocky weather.

Unfortunately, the wet weather made it hard to keep the lens dry which made some photos come out blurry.  This was the best photo I could get of Maya.

To get the full effect of just how bad the weather was (and this wasn’t even during the peak time of the bad conditions) watch the video below.  You may notice the light from the lighthouse in the distance at the tail end of the video.

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
