"The long, sandy spit that encloses Plymouth Harbor is punctuated at intervals by overwash areas created during high storm tides. These areas, strewn with attractive wave-polished cobbles, are favored roosting sites for what a friend calls ‘semi-sweet plovers.’ With their broken color patterns, these birds can be difficult to spot among the multi-colored rocks, and drawing them was a game of hide-and-seek."
