Every fall when the northeast winds blow people rush to this particular beach to grab the tender bay scallops that sometimes wash up in the wind driven waves.
This morning when we took our early morning walk we were surprised to see so many cars and trucks parked just outside the still locked gate but it didn’t take us long to figure out why….
They were hunting and gathering scallops!
Some were very happy with their catch…
One let me photograph his bountiful bucket….
and some, like this poor lady in the foreground just couldn’t bring herself to scavenge through all that mucky seaweed to find her seafood gold…she left empty handed….
Irene left many Cape Codders without power but it was a beautiful day here. We traveled to the lower Cape and I have lots of pictures and stories to share over the next few days. I hope all of you have fared well through the winds and the waves and don’t have to worry about things like this…
I’m pretty sure the woman on the jetty talking on the phone actually had nothing to do with the poor boat listing on its side but I think this photo is just begging for a caption, don’t you?
