Cape Cod

Oh Cape Cod how you continue to charm me.

Each time I cross your shores I'm enchanted by the salty winds, the calming pace, the laughing gulls and boy.

May I have been brined by your waters that I might carry you home on memories and cockle shells.

Memories.  Of ferry rides and loaded transport: a clamorous rally of motorcycles.

Martha's Vineyard- different than remembered, but curious nevertheless.

A father still teaching his 34 year old daughter; now educated about the lay of a dory motor.

A grandfather teaching his 3 year old grandson the first strokes- building blocks for navigating rip tides- independently, eventually...

Bear, does the sea thrill you as it does me?  Are you learning to embrace its every flow right down to its sandy soul?

The herring runs, a clanging buoy, the shovel hitting the pail.  Remember them all Bear

just as I can recall childhood clambakes, a Hyannis honeymoon, your first trip across the Bourne Bridge and now

our final portrait of 3.

Dear Cape, I carry these memories carefully, delicately home until we 4 return to you again.

Can you guess?  It was a wonderful vacation!  I am almost back to reality here in cozy Vermont and within a day or two I'll be back to phone calls, e-mails and blog hopping.  Lots of love!
