Low Tide At Skaket Beach – A slideshow

Written by Brian Tarcy


ORLEANS – Sometimes, you run into low tide. Low tide is more subtle than high tide. We are all about the high tides of life. But our favorite Cape Cod artist, who normally specializes in light and color, did some great work on with texture and patterns at low tide at Skaket Beach.

Soon, this beach will be filled with people, beach towels, and footprints. In the middle of May, just before all of that happens, the immense vista and intricate sand patterns couldn’t help but offer something like perspective.
