It is not uncommon to see structures like this on the beach, started in a rather impromptu fashion by someone and then further built upon by passers-by.
I encountered this beach sculpture at the southern end of Coast Guard Beach, very near Nauset Inlet. My additions to the work-in-progress include a feather, a clam shell and another piece of "lacey" shell which I tucked into a piece of netting.
Seeing things like this on the beach are, for me, pleasant reminders of our innate desire to create and use found objects, for one never knows what will wash up on the beach.

Hot and dry...

This class painting is of a place very familiar to the many who travel over sand to enjoy the benefits of a less congested Nauset Beach - it is the check-in shack for the ORV trails south of the public beach.

Turkey time already?

When Garett and I returned home from an outing this afternoon, we were greeted by these 7 turkeys strolling down our driveway. Before leaving the yard, they pecked the heck out of my once beautiful petunia planter, which WAS still in full bloom...they also left a few reminders of their presence!

I once again took watercolor classes this summer...this is my class painting of Nauset Light in Eastham.
