The Walk to Mill Landing

I was late getting out for my walk this evening.

It was pretty quiet as I parked at Forest Beach and made my way to Mill Landing.

Anticipating as always the kind of magic that can happen as the day draws to a close at one of my very favorite places on Cape Cod…

It was a sound that I had heard many times before.  I turned to look, following the movement of a bird that was familiar to me as it hovered over the channel and then swung up, up, and onto the opposite banking…

He scooted along the muddy bank, nimble as a mountain goat, finally making his way down to the water’s edge…

The dinner hour commenced.

With very little fanfare…

And as I headed back to the parking lot at Forest Beach, I was reminded that I had dilly-dallyed long enough for one day.

It was time for me to head for home.
