A Most Unusual Sound

My friend, Debbie, and I are staying on the bay side of Cape Cod. It is unbelievably beautiful. It's exactly as you would expect the Cape to look, but with more trees. But, what has been most interesting to me is the sound that the water makes when the tide is going out. When I first heard it I just couldn't figure out how to describe it. The best description that I could come up with is a sort of sucking sound. It's almost like the sound you would expect if you could record the ocean and then spin the record (the old black vinyl kind) in reverse, much like they used to do with the Beetle records.
I don't know why but I just love this little fence along the sand. Perhaps it's because it reminds me of the picture on the website for the place we are staying.
When the tide is out you can always find people out on "the flats." It's fun to walk out there, but seriously, there's not a lot to see. The most fun part of it is hearing how annoyed the seagulls get when you walk near them. I'm sure they'd be more excited to see me if I were carrying food for them but since I'm not, they just squawk to let me know that I'm in their space.

You can't beat a view like this.

OH Wow!! I've never traveled there before...what beauty! Take me with you next time! ;)

Thanks for asking about the book "Behind Those Eyes" by Lisa Whittle. My sister just bought her copy at our local Christian store, Family Christian. So, I would check with all of your local book stores first or if they dont' have it see if they can order it for you. Or Amazon, etc. has it for sale on line. :)
This is a great buy!
Let me know if you decide to get it. If you haven't already, you should visit Lisa at her blog at www.lisawhittle.blogspot.com Friday I am sending any readers to her for a post God laid on her heart regarding this study. I can't wait to read it myself. :)
Have a blessed day tomorrow!

Yeah, there's just something about the Northeast. Years ago a college friend and I traveled to Prince Edward Island, Canada, just for fun, and it was so beautiful. Your beach/fence picture totally reminded me of that jaunt. Good times!
