On a related note, for those of my readers interested in learning more about Wellfleet or who love the town and want to keep up with what is happening check out Wellfleet Today. It is a really good blog published by Alexandra Grabbe. She and her husband Sven run the B&B Chez Sven In Wellfleet.
An object flew over Wellfleet Harbor at low tide on Sunday. At first I thought it was a remote control toy helicopter but it certainly didn’t fly like one. I asked a woman if it belonged to her kid and she laughed nervously and said her 6 year old didn’t have a drone and she had no idea why Wellfleet had one.
I unfortunately only had my 85mm not the 300mm so couldn’t get in really tight. Thoughts? Helicopter? Drone? Other?
Flying back to from where it came
Showing no inclination to land anytime soon
I can’t remember a year in the past 25 where we have gone so far into the summer without visiting Wellfleet even once…This is Blackfish Creek at low tide.
Highland Light in North Truro. I was trying for an Edward Hopper look here.
This week’s photo challenge is: Fresh
Just yesterday I had my first fresh peach of the season which naturally put me in mind of food. So here we have three examples of freshness, 2 food based and one not.
First and most important of all…
Fresh air. Can’t live without it!
Several years ago (2008) we went to a Slow Food 3 day Festival? Feastival? in San Francisco. One of the events we attended was foods of the south. They had these extremely fresh apples sliced as we sat down I had never tasted before…
The Schumacher Apple (birthplace: Creston, South Carolina – Hi Andra and MTM!)
The following year we went to Wellfleet for the Oyster Fest in mid October (The fresh air picture is from there). Oysters are not the only fresh thing you can get in Wellfleet.
I don’t eat lobster but I was told these were great.

Ailsa’s theme this week is Pale
Wellfleet, Cahoon Hollow, May 6, 2009
Ailsa over at Where’s my Backpack? threw down a new photo challenge in honor of World Oceans Day. This gave me a chance to dig through some older pictures. The scans were done on the fly and on the cheap. It doesn’t bother me. Hope it doesn’t bother you.
Let’s start with the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica back in the early 90’s….
Then head off to the island of Sifnos in the Mediterranean in 1995
Then jump a century to Wellfleet MA and the Atlantic in 2011
From March of 2012 Dominica gives us The Caribbean (just around the corner from Secret Bay)
Finally we jump back in time to 2005 and an ocean
of people at The Del Mar County Fair.
