Sunday’s Brief Respite

Morning rain over the Thimble Islands.

Sunday’s brief respite from the summer heat was an invitation to step out for a walk this morning, and I am so glad I did. The nature trail by the marsh was serene and still, and for the first time in weeks, my heart was, too.

Juniper and Yarrow

Queen Anne’s Lace

Oak along the path

Goldenrod and summer green

Storm passing

Towering marsh grasses

Shore birds reflecting

Such stillness

  1. What time did you go? I wanna get up early before work and go too! I did the evening walk in Stony Creek village. Vacationers galore. I love the happy, carefree energy they create. The laughter and the clink of dishes and drink as the summer simmers on is magical. Vacation is only a mile away!


  2. Beautiful pictures! While on vacation, I was lucky enough to experience a thunderstorm. It’s been months since we’ve seen rain, so it was quite nice to watch the gray clouds roll in! 🙂
