"Silence is the true friend that never betrays." ~ "Confucius

I won't pretend to be a movie maker, but this 50-second shot gives you an idea of the peace, quiet and beauty right outside the door of our Cape rental. It is for sale. I keep buying lottery tickets.

"Long ropes of sand ridged like muscles on the sea's floor, seeded with ghostly pebbles polished like eggs waiting in weedy nests." ~ The Sea at Truro - Nancy Willard

One of our stops on the Cape was to Ballston Beach in Truro. I have walked and played and laughed on this beach with loved ones over the years, and this is where my ashes will be scattered. I have hundreds of pictures of this beach. Wave after wave; seagull after seagull; boogie-boarding son and nieces and nephews. This time, we came across a wonder in the sand that was new. Tiny feathers and rivulets; little pebbles scattered wide. Enchanting......

"Details of the many walks I made along the crest have blurred, now, into a pleasing tapestry of grass and space and sunlight." ~ Colin Fletcher

The Cape has an abundance of hiking trails, so while we were there last week, we took advantage of a few of them!  Just beautiful!








We came across three praying mantises on the underside of a kayak alongside the water. One was busy devouring the other. Neither one of us could remember the last time we had seen one, let alone three. 





Upon our return, the head was gone!










So beautiful in the autumn!
