I won't pretend to be a movie maker, but this 50-second shot gives you an idea of the peace, quiet and beauty right outside the door of our Cape rental. It is for sale. I keep buying lottery tickets.

"Long ropes of sand ridged like muscles on the sea's floor, seeded with ghostly pebbles polished like eggs waiting in weedy nests." ~ The Sea at Truro - Nancy Willard
One of our stops on the Cape was to Ballston Beach in Truro. I have walked and played and laughed on this beach with loved ones over the years, and this is where my ashes will be scattered. I have hundreds of pictures of this beach. Wave after wave; seagull after seagull; boogie-boarding son and nieces and nephews. This time, we came across a wonder in the sand that was new. Tiny feathers and rivulets; little pebbles scattered wide. Enchanting......

"Details of the many walks I made along the crest have blurred, now, into a pleasing tapestry of grass and space and sunlight." ~ Colin Fletcher
The Cape has an abundance of hiking trails, so while we were there last week, we took advantage of a few of them! Just beautiful!
|We came across three praying mantises on the underside of a kayak alongside the water. One was busy devouring the other. Neither one of us could remember the last time we had seen one, let alone three.|
|Upon our return, the head was gone!|
So beautiful in the autumn!
