Beach Time At Long Last

I was finally able to squeeze in a little bit of beach time and a spin around Sandwich taking some pictures.  Unfortunately we don't have much foliage because it's been a very warm & humid fall.  The trees are making the ol' college try but the leaves are either almost blown off or rapidly turning brown.

Still though, it was a nice day for some beachcombing.  The water was calm too.  Not much beach glass though.  Only found 2 pieces total.  

My first stop was Town Neck in Sandwich.  Now that parking fee season is over, I can hit the beaches more often.








Tide was coming in.


Cape Cod Bay on the left and the salt marshes/Mill Creek on the right

Under Boardwalk

It's been a few years since it's been repaired and is a bit cattywampus these days.



Then over to the other part of the beach to see what cairns are there now.  Some jerks made it a point of knocking them down after I was there, but they always get rebuilt.





I was excited to find that rock!  It's with the heart rock we found at Tobey Hospital in the livingroom.

  1. Very interesting patterns in the sand in the 2nd picture! I would be a little worried about waling on that boardwalk, ha ha, up and down and up! How fortunate to find the painted rock!

    1. Thanks Debi! I actually do have mattes that I could use for my pictures but I don't know if I have the time (or money) to get them processed.

    1. Yes I believe the person that saw the towers being knocked over indicated they were young.
