We took one of our favorite drives recently, to Cape Cod. It only takes about an hour for us to get there, and it’s always a pleasant change of scene. We don’t even think about going in the summer, because it’s just too crowded.
Almost every yard was full of narcissus. Even the street corners had their share. They plant so many more of them on the Cape than they do here in RI. (I wonder why.) The header photo is just a small part of a large field of narcissus and muscari. I thought the trees growing up through the color gave it additional impact, and I asked my husband to turn the car around so I could get out and take photos.
This time, we ended up at the Cape Cod National Seashore, on Coastguard Beach. It’s a seemingly endless stretch of sand – desolate and relaxing at the same time. Personal watercraft are not allowed here, thank goodness.
This is where the pilgrims on the Mayflower first saw land, but the shoals were too dangerous so the ship headed up to Provincetown. Our dog loved hanging out and sniffing the spring breeze.
This is the driftwood we leaned up against while we lounged on the sand. When we got up, I realized it looked a lot like an alligator. Cool, isn’t it?
