Along The Cape
In the twilight of Cape Cod, a solitary gull emerges as a guardian of the coastal skies. In the glow of the setting sun, this lone winged voyager sets out on a journey along the shoreline, its wings weaving intricate patterns in the fading light. The gull glides effortlessly, embodying the timeless connection between earth and sky. With feathers glistening like silver threads, she finds companionship in the whispers of the ocean breeze. In flight, there is silence, with untold stories that carry across the vast expanse. The solitary gull is occasionally joined by kindred spirits—a pair of elegant terns or a fellow herring gull. Together, they navigate the currents, leaving behind traces of their existence. In the heart of Cape Cod’s sanctuary, this singular gull embodies beauty, the timeless enchantment of the coastal winds, and the soft light that caresses its feathers. As the night descends, the solitary gull continues its solitary journey, leaving behind a trace of magic that lingers in the memory of those fortunate enough to witness its solitary flight along the mystical coast of Cape Cod.
