The Cat Daze of Summer

You’ve heard of the “dog days of summer”?

Well, we have something similar here, too.


The days are heavy, hot and humid, without a breeze in sight.

Nothing moves much…


At all.


We find it’s better to be  belly up, than not.


All the experts tell us that this will end around August 11th.

But Marmee and I have heard that “tall tail” before.


So we’ll keep you posted.

With paws crossed that cooler days are just around the corner.


And in the meantime, we’ll be doing whatever it takes to keep a smile going under our whiskers.


Whatever it takes.  😉  ❤

The Sultries Come to Cape Cod

The sultries have arrived on Cape Cod.

ForestBeachLoop874-BlogIt happens every summer, yet the intensity of heavy moisture-laden air and the effect it all has on the light and the landscape is at once uncomfortable — and beautiful!

ForestBeachLoop873-BlogLast evening the sultry winds were in full force, the ocean was choppy and covered with a drippy haze. I’m not sure which was wetter, the air all around me or the sea out beyond!

ForestBeachLoop875-BlogThe osprey young ‘uns didn’t seem to mind.

ForestBeachLoop876-BlogAs long as they keep getting their fish while learning their lessons about the fine art of hover-dive-catch!

ForestBeachLoop880-BThings seem to slow down to a crawl once the sultries settle in. The marsh gets quieter, even the sounds of summer tourists seem muffled, more subdued. Who would want to move in this heat?

ForestBeachLoop877-BlogWell maybe the crows. They never EVER seem to get tired or overheated. These Three Amigos, a case in point.

ForestBeachLoop878-BlogMe? I am enjoying the photography yet thinking cool thoughts as I lean  toward the delicious days of September.

And in the meantime, trying to take Marmee’s advice of not moving anymore than I have to.

Marmee325Hope it’s cool wherever you are!  😉

Like a dog-with-a-bone, the heat and humidity just will not let go.

Looks like these little sparrows have figured out what it takes to get thru’ the summer heat wave.

With a little team work, they help each other find all the best puddles…

And have a little fun in the process!

Don’t forget to check on those you love during the heat, especially our elderly, the critters and the kids.

And keep cool everybody!  🙂
