Susan Hill- Cape Cod
As geological formations go, Cape Cod is very young – it’s perhaps 16,000 or so years old, created as the glaciers of the last ice age retreated to the north, leaving rocks and giant ice boulders behind. The Cape’s youth is evident; you can still see it change from year to year.
Cape Cod is austere, but it’s also lush. Waving sea grasses are everywhere, separating beach from dune from coastal forest, stretching from spring-green salt marsh to hillside, creating the texture of the landscape.
