This big guy bobbed around off-shore all afternoon, riding the swells and watching us watching him. It was all well and good until Buckley caught a whiff of him and tried to swim out through the breakers to check him out. Eeek! Waves crashing, dog drowning - not the way I wanted to spend my vacation!

He's a good dog, though, and came swimming back when we yelled for him, bedraggled and soggy but safe and sound.
High up on the cliff overlooking the beach sits Nauset Light. It's been moved further inland several times due to erosion of the cliffs, as have several other Cape Cod lighthouses. I'm glad someone is working to save them.
We spent a little time the next day wandering around Wellfleet where I sketched the local fish market. It's such a quaint old town.
I'll wrap things up tomorrow with another try at painting reflections on water, plus a map of the spots we visited on the Cape.
