I spent last week visiting my parents in Cape Cod. They happen to live near the Great Marsh, which is the largest continuous stretch of salt marsh in New England. Indulging my love of marsh landscapes I took the opportunity to have a look. They were kind enough to point out many views off the beaten path that I might not otherwise have found.
The photo above is of a boardwalk in Sandwich. The boardwalk is 1350 feet long. Although you can't see it here there are many boards embellished with carved names and messages that have been donated to replace about 1700 planks destroyed by hurricanes.
During one of our marsh walks we observed what was probably an osprey in a nest raised up on a pole in the marsh.
It was cloudy almost all week with the sun breaking through just often enough. It made for some beautiful stormy skies - just my kind of weather.
We also took a road trip to Long Island to see April Gornik's exhibtion at the Heckschler Museum, which I'll post about later on in the week.
