The Perfect Time of Year
I love this time of year on Cape Cod. It is hard to describe but it happens every year. There is a specific sound that always develops in August. I wait to hear it. I yearn to hear it. Much of it has to do with the Cicadas and their low buzzing noise which starts the end of July. It is a low, constant hum. This noise along with the sun being lower in the sky creates a serene and tranquil atmosphere. It’s aided by the throngs of tourists who leave Cape Cod. The whole energy seems to slow down. It gives true meaning to the saying “the lazy days of summer”.
