The path to the ocean runs across a grassy heath.
In this season, the grasses are remarkably purple. Does amber come later in the summer?
The clay cliffs are dramatic.
Even more so, up close.
This detail reminded me of the cliffs from which are cut the canyons of ancient Petra in Jordan.
The town of Aquinnah on Martha's Vineyard island in Massachusetts is the home of the Wampanoag tribe and also of secluded compounds enjoyed by wealthy summer residents. Its beach is worth walking in any season.
