Cape Cod is a summer place. Memorial Day weekend kicks off the season with a flood of eager visitors, and then on Labor Day the tourists and summer residents head home, back to school and jobs and real life.
If only they knew that September and October are the best times to be here. The days are warm and nights are cool enough to pull up a cozy comforter. The beaches are nearly empty, and the lines at the ice cream stands are gone. There's a sweetness in the air and a certain slant of light that us year-rounders savor -- our own special secret delight.
The photo below, we are all wanderers on this earth, evokes this same kind of secret delight --can you imagine a whole field and sky that's all yours, to share with a friend on a late summer afternoon?
I've loved seeing your end-of-summer images. Leave a comment and tell us more about what you savor most about this time of year.
Until next time.
We are all wanderers on this earth. Our hearts are full of wonder, and our souls are deep with dreams. by Stephanie Caldwell
