Quick Pix From Knobwalk

I’m trying to get back in the bloghabit.

Here are some quick pix from a recent walk to a nearby beach, with a handy dog.

Cape Cod and the Islands are glacier-formed. In the terminal moraines that form our hilly land are rocks and boulders galore. All that stone makes for sturdy building material. Some of you long-time tompostpile readers know how much I love and admire good stonework. Here’s an example of the sort of work I admire. Take a moment to notice how carefully the stones are fitted together.

I lingered to admire oyster shells lingering on the edge of a waterside boulder.

As winter progresses, what’s left of last year’s seaweeds gets broken into finer and finer particles. Waves and the ebbing tide deposit lines of this material.

The dog and I left other traces.

See below.
