Denise thought that the sky would be painted gray today but it really wasn't. It was squinty instead, sun hiding among a thin layer of clouds, strong light splashing across the water. We spent most of our wander at Fort Foster in Kittery Point, following a path, walking on the beach, or picking our way to the end of rocky overlooks. Oh! It was a good day.

Tomorrow brings the autumnal equinox, a day of equal halves of light and dark. It feels like the dark half of the day has been expanding quickly. I know it hasn't, but it always feels like the disappearing daylight hits hard at this time of year.
It's dark when I wake up in the morning. As I head out for my late afternoon (or early evening) walk, there is usually still light in the sky. I've taken to wearing my bright blinking lights already since it's often dark by the time I return home. I know, I know, the daylight will get progressively shorter. And I'll get used to darklight walks again. Autumn...

I just wanted to let you know that Denise hasn't forgotten about publishing her photos of Newfoundland - it's just taking her a while to pull the galleries together. I was looking over her shoulder just now, and she's getting really close. Soon...
Oh! And while she's been wandering through photos and memories, I'm helping her make some decisions on more travels for later this year. We need to head to Acadia for a long weekend, probably late in October, and I'm pretty sure we'll be wandering somewhere out west in early December. Denise needs a little bit of a push to make plans; I think they will come together pretty quickly though.
What? Of course we went beyond the danger sign! Yes, we stayed well back from the edge.

It was a day of gardens, starting at Bedrock Gardens and ending at Fuller Gardens with a wander through the roses.

Today was the last scheduled open house of the season at Bedrock Gardens, so you probably can guess where I headed this morning. It was a beautiful day, and there was beauty around every turn -sculptures, creatures, flowers, and reflections.

I managed to wander by the four studios scattered about Fogo Island by the Fogo Island Arts Corporation. Walking to and around the buildings was possible. There were no artists in residence when I was there, giving me the freedom to peer through the windows.
And... somehow an interesting reflection jumped into my photo through the window of Bridge Studio.

I needed a walk on the beach, a walk with the ocean waves creating their song, a walk with the birds skittering along the wet sand. I headed to Parker River National Wildlife Refuge for my first visit since the beach closed to humans on April 1st, becoming a long, peaceful piping plover nesting ground.
I found wetland grasses wearing yellowing shades of green, bright umbrellas, quiet waves, sanderlings skittering, even an egret who allowed photos to be taken.

This spot is in Terra Nova National Park, water that I passed several times since it was between the area of the park where I was wandering and my B&B. I drove the road along the water and then immediately turned around and headed back to the beginning, parking the car this time and walking.
