It was a relatively mild February weekend and allowed us to get out on to Coast Guard Beach for a lovely winter walk. The beach is ever-changing so we never get bored walking the spit! It was low tide, sunny, 50 degrees with only a slight breeze...a rarity for sure on a February day at the Cape Cod National Seashore.  Some clever devil has collected all the flotsam and jetsam from the beach and crafted a make-shift lean-to.  I suppose it might be in the approximate location that was once Henry Beston's Fo'Castle shack on the outer beach that was washed away in the Blizzard of '78.  The beach is still changing...with every storm.  Aren't we lucky to be so close?

There is always something new to see when you come to Cape Cod
