Cape Cod postcards

My annual visit to Cape Cod Massachusetts was wonderful.  The weather was as wild as the landscape.  Wind, some rain mixed with thunder and lightning, but mostly glorious sunshine.  The full Blood Moon occurred while I was there, which made the high tides spectacular. 

It's hard to describe the outer Cape to you, if you've never been there.  If I had to use just one word to describe it, I guess the word would be "Natural".   Of Nature.  Man hasn't tried to mold and shape it into something it's not.  Nature is the boss there and Man is along for the ride. 

Our drive out onto the beach to fish at Race Point was somewhat curtailed by beach erosion.  We could only drive out so far, but I hoofed it on bare feet to see where the beach now ends.  The ocean water flowed inland to make a large tidal pool, which was inhabited by a variety of ocean flora and fauna.

Spending a winter on Cape Cod is definitely on my bucket list.  I'd love to experience the solitude, the stark landscape and all that Nature can bring.

There's a lot of beauty out there.

The edge of the large tidal pool had an interesting design.

I love the colors of blue and tan and the design of the water ripples.  And, of course, the red seaweed!

The beach and "beach art" at sunset.  Because the tip of Cape Cod curves around, one sees the sun set over water.  An unusual sight on the east coast!
