The Wampanoag language has some wonderful “Q” place name words.
Quabbin, Quaddick, Quaboag, Quansoo, Quassapaug, Quenames, Quissett……..
We left the house an hour before sunset, to visit one of these “Q” places.
Here’s some of what we saw.
The last rays of sun limn beach grass with gold.
Down here there are horizontals. New England is not a place where you see a lot of horizontals.
The tide had turned, and was coming in. Wave, seiche and slosh.
Silhouetted by the sea.
When a wave has freshly retreated, still-wet sand surface reflects, temporarily mirroring sky.
A warm-but-cool September evening-into-night is one of the finest times to be here.
To fish. To photograph. To fan flames.
To be young, with friends, at a fire, at the beach.
At a place whose name starts with Q.
