Cape Cod

Our second annual visit to Welfleet where Doug and Sandy have rented a cottage. It overlooks the Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary.  I wish I could say that we saw lots of birds but we didn't - it always seemed to be low tide when I looked out

There is a park where one can walk around and it's very pretty and overlooks the swampy areas.  We came across a number of wild turkeys on the walk.     
We had a nice  walk on the Great Island Trail which took us along sand dunes and then across to the ocean side beach.  It was very beautiful and interesting to see the various landscapes - oak forest to grasses to extensive beach.

And we had our afternoon swim at Lecount Hollow Beach at Maguires Landing.  It was very hot and the water very cold!  Last year we saw seals in the water but not so this time.

A walk along the beach at the Great Island trail provided the source for a small quilt that I made for an assignment for my course with Elizabeth Barton.  The theme for July was rhythm.

A very interesting take on rhythm, Dianne, and not unlike your "Movement" piece. I look forward to seeing this up close, so I can appreciate the techniques you've used. I'd also love to see any other sketches you had made for the assignment, i.e. the ones that got away.
