Sun came out today. It was nice. Went for a walk on the beach.
The fog was still so thick you couldn’t see 100 yards down the beach, even with the sun out at 4pm. The tiny dot in the distance is the Gay Head lighthouse.
There were lots of starfish on the beach. I threw a bunch back in the water.
We collected wampum.
It got overcast on the way back. The cliffs above the beach are streaked with deep red clay. Access is restricted to tribal members by federal law.
69˚ and cloudy, but great clam chowder
Since I’m a bit flu-ish and the weather is bad I didn’t make it more than about thirty yards from the house, but I discovered some interesting things nonetheless.
The visual effect of the vine along this trunk is beautiful, but the vine itself looks to be parasitic–I can’t imagine an oak tree being very happy to have vines wrapped around it, but maybe I’m wrong.
