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!”

First Leaf Peeper Spotted on Cape Cod

We get a lot of visitors here on the Cape in autumn.

They make their pilgrimage without fail every year to witness the brilliantly colored leaves along the marshes and ponds.

I spotted my very first leaf peeper the other day.


This particular leaf peeper seemed to be quite the expert, with the keenest eyes and the sharpest focus I have ever seen.

And no binoculars required.


I could see that she had a real gift for picking out the best leaves.

She wasn’t the only one.


All in all, my leaf peeper appeared to be pleased by what she saw as she sniffed the air and –

Well, as you can plainly see —

Smiled.
