This dwarf Colorado Blue Spruce at the sanctuary of Saint Mary’s Episcopal in Barnstable, sits among the lush undergrowth of the forest behind it and is typical for many parts of the Cape and Islands. I visited Coast Guard Beach yesterday, as we parked at the Cape Cod National Seashore (Salt Pond), walked the bike trail, 2.0 miles, and arrived at the long, white sandy beach with the fog playing with the mid-day sun. The waves began to increase in size, 2 feet, as the tide began to roll out around noon. With the tide being completely out, you can walk forever into the east in a wading pool of fresh water coming from the source of the Atlantic Ocean. Upon reaching the sand bars, the breakers build in size and before you know it, you are body boarding your way back to shore. From Coast Guard to Race Point, the beauty that is the Cape Cod National Seashore is unmatched as the wisdom of Theodore Roosevelt, who, many moons ago, created the National Park system and thus, created what was already created and protected it from the things of man…preserving one’s right to imagine this precious part of our heritage in the beauty that it was, is and will remain to be. Have a nice Monday. Peace M
