Calm before the storm


I was out on the Islands again on Tuesday. I saw these green hairy rocks by the boardwalk, then blundered around in the woods and surprised a little flock of swans in a quiet inlet. It was so shady there, and the swans were so white, that in this photo they look like they're glowing. At first I thought the bit of beach they were sitting on was covered in litter, then I realized it was swan feathers.


There's not much time left for bumming around on the Islands. It'll get chilly soon, and school starts next week. All the people I know whose lives are tied to the academic calendar have been as twitchy lately as cats and dogs before a tornado hits. You never really feel ready to let summer go. I'm going to try to head out to the beach at Hanlan's Point one more time tomorrow.

Indeed! It was so quiet, then suddenly BAM! Undergrads everywhere! Not that I dislike them, but there's always so many all at once!
