The Cape

As fall settles in with blustery days and vistas gradually brighten to russet and yellow before the browns of winter set in, I'm thinking about Wellfleet. I think about the cape a lot. I guess you might say it's my happy place. It's extraordinary in the summer...but crowded with people and cars, so many that I've imagined it just sinking back into the ocean. But fall on the cape is different. Not so many people to share it with and the activities shift from going in the water to hiking the beaches and moving at a slower pace. I want to beam myself there right now. I can just smell the ocean and see the long shadows on the sand.
But truth be told, our time on the cape is vacation, not real life. And life is good here, too.

  1. Hi, Shelly. I thought this post about the Cape in fall was beautiful. Do you mind if I quote you some time on my blog?

    It was fun to visit your site and see your beautiful jewelry. Do you find the stones in Wellfleet? Are they for sale locally?

    All best!
