Sea of Change

Don’t worry, Winter is still here.  Due to some constraints and the rain up north last week, Catherine and I spent the day hiking instead, while I wait for Mt. Washington to recover.

Catherine showed me a side of Cape Cod I wasn’t familiar with, including some trails outside of the tourist trap, left especially empty since it’s so early in the season.  It was a great day for a low-key adventure without the crowds.

First we checked out a trail down one of the prominent sand deposition features down the Cape.  We saw plenty of wildlife and soaked up the views while skipping stones as we walked down the shore.

We wandered through scraggly trees and found our way back to the shore.

Next we went down the street to an entirely different locale, almost like something out of fiction.

I couldn’t believe there was so much variety packed into  such a small area of the Cape.  Hopefully our trip doesn’t usher in the warm weather yet though, I haven’t nearly gotten my fill of touring, and spring skiing has barely begun!

If anyone is interested in repeating this hike, I’ll update with some clues, but I don’t want to give it all away without a bit of googling.
