Charlestown Beach Entry In Fall Weather by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

I am an enthusiast of the book "The Outermost House" by Henry Beston. In this Pulitzer Prize-winning work, Beston describes his year of living in a house. The house, lost in the Blizzard of '78, was on what is now the Cape Cod National Seashore.

One of my favorite quotes from Beston's book is this: “The world today is sick to its thin blood for lack of elemental things, for fire before the hands, for water welling from the earth, for air, for the dear earth itself underfoot. In my world of beach and dunes these elemental presences lived and had their being, and under their arch there moved an incomparable pageant of nature and the year.”

So here I visit the beach often. I do not pick sunny days; I pick days. Days with rain. Days with fog. Days with clouds. Days with a gentle swishing sound. Days that roar with crashing waves.

What lies beyond the breach in the dune? A wonder of sight and sound no matter the condition.
