Story & Experience

Skaket Beach, Orleans Massachusetts. This beach is one of my favorite places on the Cape to watch the sunset. The bay you see in the picture is becoming more and more of a wounded place. It is experiencing loss of biodiversity and pollution. My friend and I met here to go for a walk, and made this heart out of seaweed along the way. It was almost therapeutic to stop and take this small action in nature. There was no litter to be seen on the beach, and although the bay is a wounded place this reminded me that it can get better.
