Swan River Reeds Wave Hello to Autumn

This is such a familiar view here on the Cape where the road opens to a view of the salt marsh…

Swan River, on Upper County Road near Hart Farm and Clancy’s Restaurant is one of my favorite spots in autumn for such a view.

And it’s all about the reeds.

Seeing them standing so tall against the backdrop of a changing palette of autumn colors, waving to and fro, backlit by the sun…

You can almost hear them as they’re swaying, saying…

“Hello fall, welcome autumn!”


The Wait

How hard it can be sometimes.

Those times when you cannot see the forest for the trees.

When one blends into the other.

And it’s hard to tell them apart.

‘Til one day,

At long last…

You can.
