Even during the busiest of summers here on the Cape… finding “the quiet” is not impossible.
I can hear them already outside my window. The steady stream of cars, making their way to Chatham for the big parade.
It’s the Fourth of July weekend and the official start of summer here on Cape Cod!
After the parade, cars filled with umbrellas, squealing children and floaties will flood the beaches.
Boats of every size and color will be launched.
Left hand turns will have to wait ’til Labor Day, and the annual battle over parking spaces will begin again in earnest.
Five star restaurants will summon the very best seafood chefs around.
The dirt paths, the out of the way spaces…
I will follow the birds, the true experts on quiet…
No matter what your particular tradition or dream might for this holiday, I hope that you find it.
It is worth searching for…
Happy Fourth of July everybody, and Happy Birthday America!
