12-18-14 Shall We Dance?

I went to Northampton yesterday to pick up Abigail and her friend Ingrid for their Holiday break. Being college students (1st semester, 1st year no less) they were running late so I went to get gas. As I pulled into the station I saw a wonderful and remarkable thing. Luckily I had my camera with me. I didn’t want to intrude but I still like what I got…

8-9-12 Three Water Day

Today we had what we call a three water day.
Elizabeth really wanted Oysters for the cocktail hour. Blackfish Creek is home to the best Oysters in Wellfleet and therefore the world, and there are several Oyster Farmers on the flats as well as several legal foragers who harvest daily. Elizabeth decided to see if she could buy some. She took off with Ben while I was waiting for a visitor. But I chased them down (home field advantage.

The farmers aren’t allowed to sell so I found a forager and we bought 2 dozen.

That was water 1. Then off to LeConte Hollow for some time in the Atlantic.

Back to the house so those who eat oysters could indulge.

To finish our day we went to Harwich for the first game of The Cape Cod League playoffs between Harwich and Orleans.

Orleans won the game 3-1.
