Guess what? I went to the beach today and got some color in my cheeks! OK, so it was wind burn and about 30 degrees out, but, dammit, the sun was shining!
B, my Dad and I went up to Wellfleet today to check out a hull of a boat that was probably made in the 1800s. The storms of this winter have eroded the beach so much that it unearthed this wooden hull. Think about that. People have been enjoying this beach for 200 or so years and all that time, underneath it, was a hull of a boat that sank at sea. Pretty cool.
I have never been to Stonehenge, but it was a pilgrimage of sorts. People trekking in thick sand and a strong breeze to witness history.
There was this sign posted warning us not to take any part of this history.
My Dad and B standing near the hull. What's that? You think B is wearing a wooly mammoth on her head? Well ,yeah she is, but hey, it keeps her warm!
Here is the hull, up close and personal. It was low tide, but I guess at high tide it is covered and the sand around it keeps disappearing. It was pretty cool because instead of nails they used rounded wood. Also, they were able to bend the wood so it curved on the bottom of the boat.
And finally a picture of B and me. I knew you were waiting to see me bundled up like the Eskimo I felt like. At least I had on my cool shades.
Finally, on our trek back to the year 2008, we had a little fun with our shadows.
See? Half on the beach, half in the water. So the water was a chilly 36 degrees. Our shadows didn't seem to mind.
