The marshes of Cape Cod are extraordinary in so many ways that in order to really know them you have to sit with them for a while. The hundreds of species of birds and other wildlife that make them their home, makes it imperative that we keep them pristine and devoid of human interference. The shore birds that migrate here from either the South or the North, such as the Great Blue Heron, can be seen wandering around from time to time, fishing for the various fish that swim with the tides in and out of Cape Cod Bay. This partiuclar shot is from Barnstable Harbor, where it covers lands that thankfully have been protected by Presidents of the past, such as Theodore Roosevelt, who perhaps did not deem this marsh as a national park, but inspired others to set aside wetlands and other natural treasures–blocking the development of new condos and shopping malls… giving children from 2 to 103 and beyond the opportunity to enjoy and BE a part of, as opposed to apart from. Here on the Cape and Islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, there are many such inspiring, breathtaking venues that are free, as nature intended them to BE. I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and visit our national treasure that IS Cape Cod! Peace M
