Last month I spent couple nights in Gloucester on Coffins beach aka Wingaersheek. One morning, not long after sunrise, I headed down to one of my favorite places to be. Apparently, a few others had the same idea. As I reached the crest of sea grass and sand dunes my sight was drawn to four shapes. It took me a second to realize what it or they were. Deer. Having never seen such a thing, I sprinted back over the sandy path to grab my camera bag. Below are a series of images of a family of deer frolicking along one of the most perfect stretches of beach anywhere.
