The Sultries Come to Cape Cod

The sultries have arrived on Cape Cod.

ForestBeachLoop874-BlogIt happens every summer, yet the intensity of heavy moisture-laden air and the effect it all has on the light and the landscape is at once uncomfortable — and beautiful!

ForestBeachLoop873-BlogLast evening the sultry winds were in full force, the ocean was choppy and covered with a drippy haze. I’m not sure which was wetter, the air all around me or the sea out beyond!

ForestBeachLoop875-BlogThe osprey young ‘uns didn’t seem to mind.

ForestBeachLoop876-BlogAs long as they keep getting their fish while learning their lessons about the fine art of hover-dive-catch!

ForestBeachLoop880-BThings seem to slow down to a crawl once the sultries settle in. The marsh gets quieter, even the sounds of summer tourists seem muffled, more subdued. Who would want to move in this heat?

ForestBeachLoop877-BlogWell maybe the crows. They never EVER seem to get tired or overheated. These Three Amigos, a case in point.

ForestBeachLoop878-BlogMe? I am enjoying the photography yet thinking cool thoughts as I lean  toward the delicious days of September.

And in the meantime, trying to take Marmee’s advice of not moving anymore than I have to.

Marmee325Hope it’s cool wherever you are!  😉

Looks like these little sparrows have figured out what it takes to get thru’ the summer heat wave.

With a little team work, they help each other find all the best puddles…

And have a little fun in the process!

Don’t forget to check on those you love during the heat, especially our elderly, the critters and the kids.

And keep cool everybody!  🙂
