October Chills

It's bright and chilly this week on Cape Cod, the waves pounding along the shore in anticipation of this weekend's full moon. The tides have been high, and a little sand has washed out to sea... (note the bottoms of the Connelly's new dune fence) but hopefully the next change of wind will bring the sand back onto this stretch.

But generally the beaches are looking great - very little seaweed washing ashore with the prevailing winds, leaving clear clean beaches to walk on in the October sunshine.

October Nor'easter

The seagulls are all onshore for the storm, but the sun is breaking though the clouds. Not sure if this nor-easter is still going to drench us or not, but the surf is certainly pounding our coastline.

There's already some sand erosion taking place with the waves, but luckily the jetty work was completed earlier in the week so we shouldn't have any repeats of last winter, when the waves shifted the boulders around atop the jetty.

Generally, the weather's been beautiful this fall. Yesterday was a perfect Fall Day, sunshine and homecoming soccer games. I'm looking forward to more of those next week.

October Dawns on the Cape

It's officially October, and the weather has taken a turn for the chilly here on Cape Cod. October 1st brought with it a brush with the heavy winds and rains that swept up the Atlantic seaboard last week.

Saturday morning, however, dawned clear and bright, albeit chilly. Beautiful day. By Sunday the skies had clouded over once again and today feels like November come early. But days like Saturday make us happy to be here in the fall.
