A Little Cloudy Day Relish

Some people just “get through” the cloudy days…

As they await the next sunny one.

I relish the cloudy days, and the magic they bring with them.

When colors seem more intense, yet at the same time softer, almost dreamlike.

When it’s quieter, too.

Even among the birds, ordinarily so full of a million things to chatter about.

It’s when every breeze seems to be whispering something as it moves over the sand-sprinkled rosehips…

And upward through the pines.

Something akin to a secret.

A secret that I relish.  ❤

Cloudy Day Magic

Even on cloudy days, there’s always something to see here on the Cape.

Like this beautiful male eider, padding along at Forest Beach looking for a jettie to land on.

Or this male white-tailed scoter just offshore in the same spot, diving for his breakfast.  Don’t you just LOVE that orange bill and the white crescent under his eye?

On cloudy days you might even spot a few surprises peeking out at you from among the bushes if you look real close.

And I mean, REAL close!

‘Think it’s hard to find the beauty on a cloudy day?

Nope, not a bit. Sun or no sun, it’s all there just waiting for you to look for it!  😉
