These photos were taken today on the northside of the Cape. Things are still looking rather brown and dull on the nearby marsh and except for the pine trees that dot the road up through the sand dunes to the beach, there is very little green vegetation.
The wind is out of the northwest and as you can see the surf is up on Sandy Neck Beach.
I caught a glimpse of a group of divers making their way to the beach, carrying wetsuits, masks, air tanks. Not for me, I thought. Too COLD! Even in the middle of the summer, the water temperature at Sandy Neck only gets up to 50-60 degrees.
