Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you some type of beverage. Does that sound odd? Well, it is now evening, and I for one would be up all night if I had any coffee right now. It’s getting a little cool out, but I might light a fire in the fire pit tonight to start getting rid of some of the dead branches. We have piles of them from all of the storms we had in March. And where are we? Some of you may recognize the Beatles mugs as being on Cape Cod.
In a semi-last minute decision I decided to take this last week off of work. I didn’t have any plans, I just needed a break. I stayed in New Hampshire (NH) until Tuesday evening and then drove down here to Cape Cod. In NH I did some light hiking. I live in a beautiful area with a lot of waterfalls within a 10 minute drive. OK, some of them are then an hour or two walk, but… The weather was great and I enjoyed being out in it. And I discovered a “new” waterfall that is just off of the road when I drive to one of the nicer “gentle” hiking areas close by. See the photo below.
It rained all day Wednesday. I did get out a little,but not much. I guess a lazy day on occasion is nice. Thursday started wet and cool, but turned into a beautiful day. Friday was nice until noon and then it cooled down and was wet in the evening. Today was great. In fact, it was so nice I am just now sitting down to write this.
Let’s see, today I started the day with a long walk at Chapin Beach. I then went kayaking. I then took a walk in the woods at Bells Neck. And in the later afternoon I took the dogs to West Dennis beach to play. Of course I had the dogs out back to play (or laze in the sun) a few times and did a few walks with them. In other words, I didn’t stop today. Until now.
I think I got a few good osprey photos on Thursday. I’m talking the birds hitting the water or lifting out of the water with a fish. I also saw a few loons, which I rarely see here on Cape Cod.
I’m driving back to NH early in the morning. And then Monday I return to reality. (I don’t want to go back!)
Thanks for stopping by! It was nice chatting. If you have a coffee chat I will try to stop by for a visit, but it might be late this evening or tomorrow. or Monday.
