A human never feels as small as when out on, and in, the vastness of the open ocean.</p> Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:32:11 +0000 Vern Laux 34120 at http://capeandislands.org 100 Miles Offshore, "The Canyons" Offer a Last Frontier for New England Birding Booms, Cracks, and Claps: Listening to the Language of Thunder http://capeandislands.org/post/booms-cracks-and-claps-listening-language-thunder <p>One night last week a dramatic summer thunderstorm passed over the Outer Cape.
