It was starting to get cold, so we hopped in the car and drove next to The Sandwich Village Herb Shop, a New Age-y store that specializes in bulk herbs and teas, aromatherapy products, jewelry, books and more. I imagine the shop is crowded in the summer, so it was fun to be the only two browsers.
The sun was starting to set, so we decided to look for a beach. We found one off Route 6A as we drove toward East Sandwich. It was odd to see the Cape's famous dunes dusted with snow. I'd like to be able to tell you the name of the beach, but Jessica is a good influence on me. I left my notebook in the car and just enjoyed the novelty of strolling along the snow-covered sand, listening to the sounds of the sea and allowing the brisk February air to awaken my senses.
