It was one of those afternoons when the sky and sea met in a particularly glorious way. The February light was razor-sharp and the sun was still pale, giving everything a silvery sheen. This is Sandy Neck beach in Barnstable, on Cape Cod.
This kite was waaaaay up. Kite-flying is prohibited at this beach in the summer, but in the winter, it’s dogs and kites and endless possibilities.
Speaking of possibilities, I spotted this on my way back to the parking lot. I wonder if it was meant for me. (I’ve been feeling kind of defeated lately.)
