I was recently invited to join an exclusive club: "The Dune 1 Girls". ;-D They consist of a core of good friends from forever-ago, who have been going to a particular place on Town Neck Beach for quite some time. I was asked to hang out with them during a stretch of warm weather in April. My friends are hardcore beach bums and take every opportunity to make it down there. I went both on the Sunday and Monday of that week; Sunday was cool and windy but Monday was definitely a beach day. It was probably 80* in Sandwich, while only in the mid-60's at my house in BBay. The cloudy pics are from Sunday, sunny ones from Monday.
It was dead low tide, really low too, so I took that opportunity to take pics of the Boardwalk and creek in an area that's usually under water.
There were shellfishermen in the creek.
Looking towards Old Harbor.
Very muddy marshes.
Beautiful rocks in a small tide pool
Seaweed covered jetties on Town Neck Beach
Town Neck Beach and the Canal jetty breakwater in the distance. View of the beach at Dune 1.
Imagine my surprise to find out that there are seals living on these rocks in the bay!!
Gradiant colours on a beach brick (this came home with me).
Doesn't look like an eider duck or a typical seagull. No idea what it is.
I built this next to where I was sitting.
The Dune 1 Gang. The water was bracing. My feet were frozen after just a couple of minutes, just ankle deep.
Couldn't resist shooting the goofy seals again. There were lots of them.
What a big fattie!!!!! I have no idea if he's floating or laying on a rock.
Yeah yeah, I know, but I don't care. I'm posting it anyway. lol
