More new Spring Arrivals came in for a landing yesterday, to our foggy Red River marsh.
It never ceases to amaze me how magical the light and colors can be, even on such a dreary day as it was…
I love a full moon. Watching it ripen into fullness as it slowly pulls us all under its magic spell.
But this year with the humid summery heat that has been so stubbornly clinging to our Cape shores, full moon time really snuck up on me and I almost missed my very favorite one of all – Harvest Moon!
When I arrived at Forest Beach it was clear that everyone was eagerly anticipating the moon’s rise as the sun slowly began its descent.
And so relieved that I hadn’t missed one of the very best Harvest Moons ever!
Our “Sunday Best” posts have been a lot of fun this summer.
