Today’s self assignment:

The Great Marsh is a long, continuous saltmarsh in eastern New England extending from Cape Ann in northeastern Massachusetts to the southeastern coast of New Hampshire. It includes roughly 20,000-30,000 acres of saltwater marsh, mudflats, islands, sandy beaches, dunes, rivers, and other water bodies.
