There Is No Off-Season.

Being a Massachusetts native, I grew up going to the beaches on the North Shore and on the Cape in the summer. I've come to really enjoy the coast in the late fall and winter, though. There's something about the wildness and bleak state of beaches and coastal landscapes that I find much more interesting during those times. They transform from places to relax and socialize into places to reflect. Below are photos from Maine and Long Island last month.
