Duxbury Beach, on an April afternoon. The Gurnet Bridge is still under re-construction, so the only approach is from the Marshfield side, on Route 139. Well, unless you want to risk incurring the (friendly) wrath of the Harbormaster if he catches you crossing the construction zone. I took a few minutes, after viewing a lovely beach home on the Gurnet this afternoon, to walk in the sunshine. April has been cold and gray here, and the warmth of the sunshine took the edge off the chill that lingered in the steady onshore breeze. In town, the smell was of new mulch on many a lawn and garden. On the sand, the salty brine left its bracing tartness in my nose.
