now I like observing what comes out of the water, not so much the human kind, but the animal kind. Going in early spring was different, no crowds only the locals walking the beach with the occasional visitor. It always seemed like a idyllic dream to go beach combing and sell sea shells or things made with them by the sea staying all summer, becoming familiar with the sea and its rhythm of life.
Every early morning on the beach is like a new event there are always lots of things to see before people come to treasure hunt; what will show up?...will there be a conch shell or unfamiliar sea life rolling in with the waves?...will my new found friend be there too?
I stayed near one of the National Data Buoy System stations which coordinates monitoring of water temperature, atmospheric pressure, and many other things in the US and other international locations. There is a live video cam there, if you walk nearby it will pick you up and you will appear on their website.
I have photos from my visit last summer to Cape Cod, I didn't have the photography bug yet when I visited Nags Head.
Small shells are heaped up in piles at Red River Beach, Harwich, Cape Cod, MA.
Sea Wall, Providence MA
There wasn't much sand in Providence but lot's of stone seawalls and seaweed with an inlet, the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
