It's June, so it must be time for Seaweed...
That's right, the seaweed is back in bloom, and washing up on the beach once again. You can see in this picture of "the Corner" how the ocean is dark and thick with weeds, starting to wash up onto the sand. (I took this photo yesterday. There's even more weed on the beach this morning.)
Like everything else on Cape Cod, the seaweed grows faster in the warmer weather. So more of it washes ashore during the warmer months. Starting in June.
Which is why we pay to have the seaweed raked each week during the busy season, to clear the beaches for those weekend beach-towel-on-the-sand excursions. Which is one of the reasons we charge annual dues, in order to pay for the raking.
Thanks again to everyone who already paid their dues (on time) for this coming season - without everyone's help, the neighborhood couldn't run as smoothly as it does.
Hope to see you on the beach soon!
