I See Light in Life. All the Colors of the World.Posted: 2011/07/27
One my very favorite things to do after hanging out, drinking, gossiping and observing the sunset at Tea Dance, is to hop on my bike and escape the crowd. I head west to the Circular, where the Breakwater meets the mainland and the final mile or so of the Cape’s hook wraps around like a curlie-cue tail. This is supposedly where the Pilgrims first set foot in their Promisedland and I think it is one of the most lovely places on the Cape. One can see the “backside” of the sunset: the eastward light reflecting on the water and the western side of clouds and boats in the harbor. Then, a quick glance over the shoulder yeilds the real sunset, to the west, over real land. It all takes place within 2-300 yards, this spectacular interchange of light, water, magic and peace.
Last night certainly reinforced my love of this spot.
