I was inspired by a recent visit to Chatham, Cape Cod, in the summer. Although only a short drive from the Boston area, I was transported to a completely new environment and landscape. I enjoyed the summer blooms of hydrangea and marsh hibiscus. The scenery and pace of life also changed in this coastal beach escape. As a tourist, I felt I was only getting a small glimpse of the beauty of this place, and I hope to visit again.
