to Halibut Point

The sky was gray and the forecast called for steady rain by late afternoon. There seemed to be time to wander (somewhere) without getting soaked so I popped into the car and started heading east. My target today was Cape Ann, for a somewhat overdue visit to Halibut Point State Park in Rockport.

The grasses along the shore were touched with the color of autumn, as were the sumac. There were reds, yellows, and rusts decorating the landscape, still sharing space with remaining patches of green. The air was sometimes dry, sometimes full of heavy mist, and the ocean was wild. I did walk on the rocks but I stayed well away from the water.
