It's that time of year again here on Cape Cod: Tourist season. That means come Memorial Day weekend, the beaches will be packed and parking will cost $10, unless I feel like ponying up $25 for a beach sticker. But I don't like crowds and there is no glass to be found when they are here (they steal it all!), so I just avoid the beaches until September. If I have a hankerin' to go to Scusset during the summer, I will pay the $10. Or just park near the Canal and walk.
The day I went, it was somewhat foggy. The fog was coming up off the water and the sand bars.
This part was cloudy/foggy too, but behind me it was sunny.
Glass finds were pretty good.
I so love low tide. I was tempted to shed my shoes and socks but I'm always sorry when I do b/c I can't get the sand off my feet and it's uncomfortable inside the shoes.
Weather was a little unsettled. When I turned my back to the water, the breeze coming off the dunes and land was hot, but when I turned to face the water, the breeze was quite cold.
Li'l Lady Bug.
I was going to take this home with me but the bottom side was covered with ants.
There were tons of small dead ants at the edges of the sand bars near the breakwater. Billions of them. I'm seeing a lot of anthills in my yard and driveway too.
I cut my walk a little short and didn't head down to part of Sagamore Beach because I'd heard we might have thunderstorms. That never did pan out. These are the finds. The pearly thing at the top is an operculum. 3 white chips, 11 brown, 4 cobalt, 2 pale green and 10 green.
