pass me a bottle

On a hike near Hathaway's Pond we came across a wonderful old bottle and metal dump, with literally hundreds of half-buried unbroken bottles probably dating from mid-20th century. My favorite is the bottle that broke with the perfect oval to display the moss growing inside.

We were also treated to the sight of a hawk in a tree just a few yards away from where we stood near Little Hathaway's Pond. Lots of wildlife out and about -- also saw a heron, and buffleheads, and countless other water birds enjoying the early spring temperatures.

Thanks to Red Bansfield of the Barnstable Land Trust for inviting me along on these walks, and of course to pal Gordon Starr for his amazing knowledge of the woods.

  1. Wow, Lucy. The bottles are really cool and the hawk photos [especially the one with his head turned and the lovely knobby tree.] Good eye for the composition and the moment.
