December arrives once again on Cape Cod, bringing with it a mixture of fair and foul weather.
The first "storm" was actually at the end of November - on December 1st I took the above photos, showing the calm ocean and the slightest bit of erosion from our beaches. The SeaWay beach actually fared better, and seemed to gain a little sand, wither from the ocean or from the dunes blowing down onto the beach.
Last night another storm battered Cape Cod, and this morning the wind is still blowing. I can hear the ocean pounding from my house, even with all the storm windows shut tight! We'll have to wait and see whether this storm gives or takes from the beach.
Winter has certainly arrived on our shoreline.
