The deep silence of the marsh
After the morning hustle of tidying up our home, packing the car and traveling over three hours, we have finally arrived at our destination; a lovely home set up on a hilltop overlooking the marsh lands of Wellfleet, MA. Due the the unusual weather pattern this past week, the marsh is graced with frozen salt water chunks, some small and others rather impressive. From the comfort of the living room, the large windows provide quite a view of the landscape below.
Soon, we will take a walk and be able to get up close and personal with this marvel of Mother Nature. What I most appreciate about this step away to the Cape is the total peace and quiet. In order to get to this rental, we have to travel down a sandy, rutted road. For any of you who knew Cape Cod over 50 years ago, this feels like a step back into the simpler life on the Cape. What a blessing to be able to slow down, breathe, relax and soak in the goodness around us.
What are your plans for this upcoming weekend? Is it possible to take a walk in the woods? Perhaps you can find a special spot to watch the sunset and with it the glorious multi colors that paint the sky. Give yourself of slowing down and noticing the goodness around you. We can sometimes be in such a hurry that we miss the blessings around us.
