Popped over the Sagamore Bridge to Sandwich for lunch at Cafe' Chew with one of my friends on 2/28. It was another nice winter day.
After lunch, Laurie wanted to show me the herons in the marshes and I noted it was low tide, my fave time to beachcomb. I didn't bring my zoom lens so I had to massively crop this picture to show the heron.
After Laurie and I parted company, I swung up to Town Neck Beach to see if I could find any treasure.
It's super rocky at this beach, because it's where Sandwich meets the Cape Cod Canal. This would be a sand bar on any other beach, but here it's a rock bar.

Rock bar in the foreground, and that's the fog horn & light on the jetty at Scusset Beach.
There was a whole line of shells on the beach at the same place, where the water deposited them. I found a handful of white periwinkle shells, like that one on the right. I'd never seen them on Cape beaches before (or any beaches for that matter). The rest were snail and slipper shells.
