Meeting a friend for coffee in Plymouth Center. I arrived a little early and parked along the harbor. It was just in time for the sunset, and the lobster-trap tree was still standing tall, a few days after Christmas.
I love the real, raw look of this harbor. The slight bite of the cold. When I lived in Miami for college, I used to come home for winter-break and think everything around me was dead and ugly. Flashy palm trees seemed prettier at the time. Now that more time has passed and I have travelled more, I realize how beautiful all of this is. It’s alive in it’s own real, raw way.
