A Little Walk

After a day of moving chattels, we were completely tired of the inside of the house.

We went for a walk, for some fresh air, and to see what we could see.

We saw that Oyster Pond had at last begun to clear.  For weeks it has been a milky, semi-opaque blue-green, due to drought, high nutrient content, and inadequate salinity levels. The beginning of fall has at last brought rain, which is flushing out the pond.

We saw that the tree leaves are beginning to turn colors.

We noticed the colors, textures, and shape of this shelf mushroom.

And enjoyed the shallow flatness of the Trunk River Lagoon.

  1. I was in Falmouth yesterday, riding on the bike path. I smelled grapes. Also stopped to read OPET’s informational panel on the eradication of Phragmites on Oyster Pond. Two bees were warming themselves on the surface of the panel.
