Rachel Carson Refuge

Rachel Carson 's legacy is, in part, this refuge of second growth forest with tidal salt marshes that wend their way to the Atlantic ocean. It was a frigid afternoon - and I could hardly feel my fingers taking a rubbing from a memorial plaque in the park.  It is early spring and there is evidence of renewal after one of the mildest wineter's on record.  A beautiful place for quiet contemplation, even as the sound of waves crashing along the coastline came tumbling through the treeline.
