Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer season here on the Cape. And yesterday, to mark the holiday, I grabbed my camera and headed to some of my favorite places.
First stop was Cockle Cove. The marsh looked pretty quiet, so I headed down to the shore…
Where I found THE most adorable willet, scurrying to and fro in the shallows in search of breakfast.
Or could he have been gazing at his lovely face in the water, just as I was??
What is it about these elegant birds that stills my heart, that calms me down? The moment I see one, they make me feel somehow that all is right in the world.
And knowing that the crowds were descending that very moment upon our tiny yet alluring Cape Cod sandspit, I welcomed this stolen moment of utter peace with a deep sigh.
Next stop, Mill Landing! 😉
