Sundays In My City

Unknown Mami
Winter storms have battered the coast for the past 6 weeks. Stories of erosion and houses falling into the ocean are common on the news. B and I ventured out to a few places over the past 2 days to document some of the damage and in some cases, beauty.
These photos were taken on Lighthouse Beach in Chatham. Some of you may recognize the Beach Club's tennis court. Maybe they can have sand castle contests on it now? There was a Coast Guard boat checking out the seas (glad it wasn't me).

These photos were taken at the Chatham Fish Pier and at Scatteree Beach. We joked that the boat with all the seaweed in it was probably Brooke's dad's boat. It was.

These photos were taken at Nauset Beach in Orleans. That is Liam's Clam Shack from the front and back. Looks like the clams might be a little sandy this year. Also, the gazebo is on the edge of the parking lot (that is covered in sand). B is sitting on a bench that has a 6 foot drop on the other side of it.

These are some random photos of Chatham Light, B pretending she is on a balance beam and a clever way to hold up a new house in 50 mph winds.

More balance beam tricks from my trusty companion. 
Thanks for always tagging along on my photo hikes, B :)

Can't tell you how much I love that last shot. Great action shot!

Wow! I live in Texas and I hear of these things on the news but to see them first hand is stunning. Yet, while it is destructive, there is a beauty to it. And I love the balance beam antics!

Perhaps they could play volleyball instead of tennis.
