Orchard Beach is where my family has lived for over 60 years, along Mill Creek, on the Chesapeake Bay.
For a short time, the world became awash in a multitude of reds, browns, oranges, yellows, and deep greens. Autumn seemed shorter this year, the leaves turned late, and didn’t last long. The earth has quickly tumbled into slumber. The landscapes change from lush, dense greenery, to thin, sparse brown, the sun casting long shadows among the trees; the sun barely seems to fully rise in the sky. The old row boat that Hidee built rests in the woods.
The weather is growing colder and the garden goes to sleep, though the hot peppers seem to be marching on, the plants still heavy with peppers. This is bonfire time – on cold crisp nights friends gather to share stories and watch the flames dance.
Come take a walk with me…
