New Eyes

I’ve lived here on Cape Cod my whole life.

Yet it wasn’t until I picked up the camera and started pointing it outward, in the direction of all that surrounds me.

Capturing images of things I’d seen a thousand times before.

That I began to see…

With new eyes.

And it’s changed my heart forever.

It’s the Little Things

The Cape is known for its beautiful salt marshes and beaches, for its beautiful big sky views and dreamy sunsets.

But for me, some of the real magic of the Cape is in the little things…

The small, everyday things you find here along the marsh, by the sea…

If you just take a moment or two…

Shift your focus from the big picture to a smaller one…

Open your eyes wide and really LOOK…

You will find them all, I promise you.

Tiny treasures, magic moments.

Right there in front of you.

Happy Birthday, America

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.

Blog-ForestBeachLoop356For me, the Fourth is a day to find the quieter places.

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…
