I awoke this morning to a thick, heavy fog…
But all is well. I’m still here, and so are they.
It’s time to share the beauty of the new day, come what may! ❤
It’s been a while since I shared some photos of my Mom and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GingerBelle.
The Fourth is always such a day of memories and inspiration for my Mom.
And Gingerbelle for her.
Usually about something she’s thinking of planting, or a friend she talked to when she was out on her walk that day.
I can hear them already outside my window. The steady stream of cars, making their way to Chatham for the big parade.
It’s the Fourth of July weekend and the official start of summer here on Cape Cod!
After the parade, cars filled with umbrellas, squealing children and floaties will flood the beaches.
Boats of every size and color will be launched.
Left hand turns will have to wait ’til Labor Day, and the annual battle over parking spaces will begin again in earnest.
Five star restaurants will summon the very best seafood chefs around.
The dirt paths, the out of the way spaces…
I will follow the birds, the true experts on quiet…
No matter what your particular tradition or dream might for this holiday, I hope that you find it.
It is worth searching for…
Happy Fourth of July everybody, and Happy Birthday America!
The Fourth of July weekend is rapidly approaching, and I was delighted on my walk last evening to see so many new baby bunnies along the edge of the marsh.
And their Mums, with ever watchful eyes, close by…
The first tiger lilies had blossomed, a reminder that the heat of July is not far behind.
New lawn chairs have popped up, too, as Cape residents prepare for their holiday guests who’ll soon be arriving.
And as I passed each dirt path I got my camera ready in the hopes of spotting a lone fox taking advantage, like me, of the evening quiet.
It takes my breath away. Every time.
After lingering at the outlook for a while, a crow reminded me in no uncertain terms that it was time to head for home.
I had time just for one more tiger lily…
And was thrilled to find some daisies who already had their summer guests.
And as I turned for home…
THERE he was! One more tiny bunny who almost seemed to say to me, “Hold onto your hats, here comes July!”
Thank you for coming along with me, ’til next time!
