To some people, summer on the Cape is all about the beach: hanging out on the sand, dipping into the waves, paddleboarding or kayaking along the shore. To me, the Cape is so much more.
It’s meadows of wildflowers with bees buzzing.
Salt marshes hiding egrets and blue herons and old homes.
Forest trails with tiny creeks, offering shade on hot, humid days.
Surprise ponds with a lovely bench placed where one can sit and reflect on the day.
I’ve loved my time on the Cape and now that it’s coming to an end, along with the summer, I’m sending it a big bouquet of wildflowers. You’re beautiful, Cape Cod, don’t ever change.
You get a strange feeling when you leave a place, like you’ll not only miss the people you love, but you’ll miss the person you are at this place and time, because you’ll never be this way ever again.
