Up in Maine this week. First night was a beauty...we let our 4 year old stay up late and swim until after 8pm...got this shot a bit before 830

Nice, you let him stay up later than DIT.  

Congrats 4-year-old ORH.

I think he fell asleep before his head fully hit the pillow...his normal bedtime is like 745-8. :lol:

The kid is a fish though. He’s been on the beach and in the water since 830am.

How warm is the water? Must be at least high 70s.

Yeah not sure exact temps but in the shallow area near the dock it has to be at least high 70s. It’s definitely cooler in the deeper area near the channel.

I think it was two years ago when we were here right after the tornado hit the northern part of the lake at the 302 causeway. You could see the tree damage driving over it. 

Yeah 7/1/17. Ekster handing out TORs like Oprah.

353 new cases in MA reported today. 2.6% positive.  Keeps going up.  7 day average up to 2.2%

Yeah we are headed in the wrong direction albeit slowly.  The average age of cases is dropping which tells me it's the younger adults getting sick. The upward trend in hospitalizations worries the most however, more intubations also.

Surprisingly very windy here today. No crazy gusts, but a steady breeze. Feels like something from the eastern Caribbean. The breeze is fantastic

Yes, very nice. Luckily a western wind so might be able to hit the Quabbin today. Yesterday with a straight south wind around 10mph there were 2-3' rollers. Not fun in an under-powered 16' boat.

Incredible capture of the shock-wave. Looks like footage from years ago out in the Pacific atolls of a nuclear test.
