Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a large mug of super strong dark roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. It is a little chilly out there and the wind is nasty, but, out of the wind, the sun feels great. Let’s sit and chat. Oh, where are we? Some of you may recognize the photo at the top as being from Cape Cod.
I spent most of the week here on the Cape. My sister and her husband were visiting from Ohio. Not actually with me, but at a time share about 4 miles away. I met them for dinner on Tuesday, we did stuff together on Wednesday and Thursday and then they drove home on Friday. Yes, I did take Wednesday through Friday off of work.
I did a few very long walks, most by myself (including this morning), but some with my sister. On the walks I saw osprey, snowy egrets, great egrets, great blue herons, many types of ducks, several types of geese, several types of cormorants, swan, loons, osprey, hawks, falcon and a bald eagle. There were tons of people around looking at some glossy ibis, which I also saw – my photos aren’t very good, so I won’t share. There were other things, like a very pregnant racoon just off of one trail.
I also played tourist with my sister and brother in law a little. Amongst other things, we drove down to Falmouth to see the Nobska Light. This is as far south on Cape Cod as you can get and Martha’s Vineyard is very close – there is a great view of the island from the lighthouse. I think I have been in Falmouth one other time in my life, quite a few years ago, and that was just to catch the ferry to Martha’s that leaves Woods Hole. Here is a photo I took with my phone of the lighthouse:
Not a lot of other excitement. Our major activity was eating, so… And when I have been on my own it has been far too windy to kayak. It was a cold and windy week…
That is about it. Despite the wind, I will be out and about most of the day, so I need to get started.
Thanks for stopping by for some coffee and a chat! If you have a coffee share post I will attempt to visit some time in the next few days.
