It’s still raining, but we’re off to the beach.
The wet walkway reflects diffuse light.
To the northwest of the walkway, the outwash plain is tawny, punctuated with bushes.
To the east, otters’ feet flatten a path across the salt marsh grasses.
Salt bush in bloom amongst poison ivy, roses and bayberry.
The path leads over the dunetops.
On to the beach.
The eyes find treasure.
So does the camera
The camera’s eye saves treasure.
The Atlantic Ocean as a rainstorm departs.
