Summer In My Heart

As we sit here in the cold, I can't help remembering our wonderful trip to the Cape this summer.  I had a few minutes yesterday and scrapped this page.  The photo was taken at dead low tide on the Brewster flats.  It was an extremely overcast morning, so there was very little color to the sky, and what there was was an iron gray.  So I ran the photo through a few filters in Adobe Lightroom and got this fabulous look.

The quote, by Rachel Carson, reads:  To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh, to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of year, to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be.
