Yesterday I peeked in at Forest Beach, just to see what it looked like after our extreme cold here on the Cape.
Along the shoreline, bits of frozen seaweed floated in a slow-moving milkshake of chunky ice and slush.
Gazing out toward Stage Harbor Light I felt almost as if I could have walked across the frozen surface, right from the spot where I stood.
I knew it had been cold.
Still, I was not prepared for the breathtaking transformation that had taken place…
To the sea-and-landscapes I know so well.
It took my breath away. ❤
I couldn’t wait to get down to Forest Beach, once the flakes had stopped falling and the sun was beginning to sink in the West.
The first snow of the season is always special to me.
And just as I’d imagined, a new frost-covered landscape awaited me.
Magical and serene.
And some new friends were there as well!
I already can’t wait to get back again soon!
I’m not sure what it is…
But when I see Canada geese paddling around in the high tide shallows at Forest Beach marsh at sunset, looking almost like silhouettes in the dim light.
I feel a peace I can’t even begin to explain.
I’ve never actually witnessed the setting of a full moon.
And as you can see, I was not alone this morning for the setting of Super Moon at Forest Beach.
It was magical, watching that beautiful creamy orb slowly sink down below the rooftops, behind the trees.
And the company was splendid! 😉
I felt like I really needed to see the sun rise this morning at Forest Beach; our last November ‘rise for the year.
And I am happy to report that the sight of the rising sun…
This loon rising up to meet it halfway….
The amazing light turning everything in its path to gold…
And yes, even this photo-bombing sparrow who surprised the heck out of his mate…
I came away from the ‘rise feeling good-to-go, ready to face the world again.
And ever so glad I had come! 😉
Into the studio real early this morning, working on a project.
But my heart…
Was out there…
With all of them.
For the sunrise. ❤
