I took my boat up to Coskata this summer. It’s beautiful country up there. Not a lot of people who live here get to experience it. I was able to bring my boat into Coskata Pond only because it was high tide. I would not be able to do it on a low or even a mid tide. I went exploring while I was there. I have never seen so many fiddler crabs in my life. There were thousands and thousands of them there. The shark you see was well inland from the shoreline. I suspect it ventured in on the high tide, got disoriented and was stranded at low tide. The Coskata Caves pictured are interesting. They are located at the mouth of the pond and are quite large. Here are the pictures of Coskata I took while I was there.

    Thanks, annie. Coatue is another one of my favorite spots. I spent a lot of time out there this past summer exploring. So remote yet so close to Nantucket.
