We often walk along the Cape Roger Curtis Sea Walk.  It is a 4 km stretch of land that has spectacular views of the open ocean.  I am often captured by the light that dances on the trees.  Alders are interesting trees, they grow very fast and have a life of 25 years.  When they are nearing the end they start to split.  One will see long vertical splits in the wood.  Water will get inside and then when a frost hits they will suddenly explode…no rhyme of reason as to where they will land.
