Our new lifeguard at Red River beach flew in late last evening.
Happy Memorial Day weekend everybody!! 😉
What can I tell you?
I fell in love SO many times this summer.
I simply haven’t had the TIME to share them with you.
But soon, HOPEfully soon, I’ll have more photos from my summer adventures to share!! 😉
You’ve heard of the “dog days of summer”?
Well, we have something similar here, too.
Nothing moves much…
But Marmee and I have heard that “tall tail” before.
With paws crossed that cooler days are just around the corner.
Whatever it takes. 😉 ❤
Looking out across the marsh last evening you’d never know it was the first day of summer – the sea look gray-blue and mighty stormy.
We’ve had an unusually gray, wet spring thus far on the Cape, worst in a decade they say.
But the clammy clime hasn’t stopped Cape Cod summer fever for those who have come for the clambakes and the water sports.
Nor has it slowed down the ospreys who’ve come for the breeding season…
Which appears to be flying along smoothly thus far with fish aplenty!
Gardeners who’ve been wringing their hands over the damp, sunshine-less spring are starting to see some real signs of hope.
Check out this stunning purple bellflower…
On my way home last evening, I heard sounds from deep inside this hollowed out tree; a young flicker calling wildly to its Mum.
They’re all out there, just waiting for you! 😉
I grew up on Red River beach.
There were four of us kids in the family, and these jetties offered endless hours of nooks and crannies to explore. I remember periwinkles, slimy, squishy seaweed, and yes, more than a few skinned knees! 😉
Made memories to last a lifetime.
And even tho’ it was too cold for swimming yesterday, everyone had picked out their favorite spots for the day.
And each one seemed to have their own special reason for wanting to be there, at the beach.
Still… there’s always ONE in every crowd who has to push the boundaries.
I got the cold shoulder from this little guy when I reminded him that the parking fines go into effect soon. 😉
I had just one more stop this Memorial Day weekend, to a very special osprey family that has made their home very near to my own. 😉
I arrived at Forest Beach and was thrilled to see that our rosa rugosas had bloomed overnight. Like many a Cape Codder, I wait for them all winter.
By the light on the water. The slow, methodical motions of this solitary fisherman simply going about his work.
On to Red River Beach!
