Merry Christmas!  Mid 30's, mostly cloudy, flurries, wind SW 10-20 with gusts to 25

When I write "mostly cloudy", I envision a dull gray sky unlike today's that, while blanketed in clouds, was active in color as sunlight radiated through.  Mid-afternoon, Dobbs and I launched our kayaks at the Charlestown Long Park.  We were seeking protection from the strong southwest breeze, so we followed the shoreline north, poking into the fairways of Charlestown Marina and The Wellwood.  

We paddled back into the abandoned basin by Avalon Park and then farther back, exploring the small creek that runs alongside Edgewater Avenue.
