It's springtime on Cuttyhunk Island: early morning light and crisp air, vast views of clear blue skies that seem to melt right into the deep Atlantic waters, chilly and bright. Everything feels open and possible. What will the day bring? Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard Island visible in the distance. Exploring to do.
Stillness. The quiet creaking of an empty boat. We could hear ducks in the distance, the gentle sway of tall marsh grasses in the wind, and the low tide waters lapping on the moonlit shore. All hushed. We watched and we listened.
