Most of you know that I live in Sandwich, MA. You also know that I love to spend time outdoors. Nature is amazingly beautiful and full of magic. Cape Cod has many salt marshes that were created by the glaciers that formed our peninsula. Salt marshes are very important to our area. They serve as a nursery for many salt water creatures as well as a buffer from strong storms. This is a picture of a Cape Cod salt marsh at sunrise. One of my favorite places in the world is a salt marsh in Sandwich with a very special feature: a boardwalk! Here are 2 pictures of my personal paradise:
In the summer, when the tide is high, people jump off the boardwalk. I am a little bit afraid of heights so I don’t like to jump into the water. I do like to float down the creek that the boardwalk crosses. It is a relaxing, refreshing way to spend some time.
