Springtime, Sales, Giveaways!

Springtime in Brewster near Eagle Point. This moss–lined path led Tim and I on a journey where we discovered some unique images from nature.
We may be on the cusp of spring but these frozen ice sprays tell a different story. They were formed on a windy and cold morning a few days ago on the edges of Upper Mill Pond.

That same day Tim and I drove to Nauset Beach in Orleans. Quite a different sight in early spring. We were the only ones parked in the usually busy parking area. We headed for the beach.
As we exited up a dune, near Liam's Clam Shack, we found two interesting items leaning near the boarded up seaside restaurant. Look closely - there's an iron ball encrusted on the side, next to remnants of bottles.
Lost items on the ocean floor oftentimes become embedded or concreted onto other larger things laying at the bottom of the ocean. This looks like an old spring, maybe from a wagon that harvested peat to sell in Boston around the turn of the the 19th century.

Take another close look and you'll see the bottom of a boot sticking out. There were also pieces of glass, nails, and wood that seemed to be frozen in time against the metal.
And now that I have your attention, The Old Cape House–ebook will be on SALE for $0.99 until March 10 on amazon. Then it will be on SALE for $1.99 until March 12. It's called a Kindle Countdown.
