2/26/13 Morning Walk to the Beach

Stone Folk

Stone Folk

Today’s morning walk is distinctively different.  New birds are singing new tunes. Change is in the air. There’s still some leftover snow around the yard, but not much elsewhere.

The marsh is no longer frozen, and the tall grasses are cut down by the blizzard’s wind.

The creek is more blue than ever. Before long there will be beach chairs, towels, and little ones looking for hermit crabs.

And as my wonderful Dad would say, “The forsythias are forsythiating.” Spring is starting to unwind at the Cape.

I am a wordsmith, a fiber artist, a yogi, and a high energy, ball of fire. My glass is always half full, and I always have fifteen tasks ongoing simultaneously. Authority figures are not my friends, and I seldom color within the lines. I tend to “nest” in my cocoon-like home.

  1. It looks so beautiful on the cape and the freshness and crispness I can almost smell and feel.
    Thanks for those wonderful pictures.

  2. Is it a stone ‘snowman’ of sorts in the first image? It’s reminiscent of makeshift towers that we saw while hiking in Greece. Hikers passing by would drop a small stone there, and then continue along their way. We thought it was a charming custom!

    • Hello Tricia, yes it’s a stone sculpture… rock upon rock. We have incredibly rocky soil here and thought we’d celebrate the stones! We have several throughout the property and love them! I also like the idea of creating a sculpture by piling on smaller stones, but haven’t quite gotten there yet! All the best, D
