231: the seam of sea and sky

The other day, my honey said to me, "After work, I'm taking you somewhere and you need to bring your camera."

Oooh! A surprise photo location? Cool!

He said, " I'll give you one word: RUST."

At five, we headed home (we work together), grabbed the camera, hopped in the Little Car and headed out. Ten minutes later, we arrived at our destination, Dowses Beach in Osterville.

From the parking lot, we took this sandy lane through the Cape Cod roses (rosa rugosa) to get to the beach:

Camera in hand, I followed him to the  jetty. We climbed onto the rocks and carefully made our way to the end, the Atlantic Ocean splashing up against our raised path. I looked out and saw nothing but a  seam of sea meeting sky.

But that's not what I was there for.

Only the most amazing bubbly rust that I have ever seen.

Awesome painty crackles on the other side:

Ok, so I pretty much got every surface.

But can you blame me?

Ready to leave, I looked down with the camera and he got all  cute and shy with his feet, the sillyhead!
