Little bird on a big boat, with a lot to say.
We were charmed by swooping, chattering Barn Swallows yesterday at Rock Harbor in Orleans, Mass. My husband and I took a day trip to Cape Cod to see some friends and favorite places.
Rock Harbor is near the crook in the flexed arm of the Cape, with a channel to Cape Cod Bay. Sport fishing charter boats come and go.
It was a perfect summer day. The colors of the water, the brightness of the light! The balmiest temps with the lightest and most pleasant of breezes. A good start to this summer.
Barn swallows were the small, swift essences of the bright day.
