Day 109 - Today the path looks well traveled. But it's the calm before the big storm.

Day 110 - Tim took the picture yesterday, I drove Michael back to Amherst for school. Posted a day late. Tide was still going out.

Day 111 - Two people decided to brave the elements and walk the flats of Crosby Landing - left. I waited a few moments and caught the second view.

Day 112 - The tide is further out than the day before as the tides change and move through time. Remember Brewster Bay has one of the most expansive low tides in North America.

Day 113 - The snow came in the night and left four inches of white, blanketing the Cape in a wonderland of images. Notice the beach is changing, we'll be seeing low tides now.

Day 114 - more snow. Chunks of ice are forming across the bay with temps in the low 30's.

Day 115 - Temperature is 29, wind calm, more snow has arrived. I've been watching the dark stalk of grass coming out of the dune to the right of the fence, lets see how long it stays up in the coming days of winter 2011.

Day 116...
With temperatures in the single digits last night, ice is building up on the surface of the water. The ocean underneath this frozen covering continues to move in and out, as the tides create weird ridges across the coastline.

Two hours after the picture under this one was taken, we had snow.
There's a saying here on Cape Cod: If you don't like the weather, wait a minute, and it will change!

Today is the 117th day and Crosby is sunny and cold at 26.5 degrees, with a strong wind.

Snow has begun to collect near the wrack-line.

The temperature was a cold 20 degrees on this sunny blue-skied day at Crosby. It is 118 days until the wedding.

Scotty and Carly


Today marks the countdown to May 20, 2011. It is 120 days until my son, Scott Struna, marries his beloved, Carly Bowen. The wedding will take place at Crosby Landing, a beautiful bayside beach in Brewster, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. Each day or at least twice a week, I will post a picture of the sandy path that will, on that day, lead them to where their marriage ceremony takes place. As wind, weather and tides play games with this fragile sandscape, you should notice subtle changes to this special place. Enjoy! Hope to see you soon!
