Monday on the Cape

Sounds of Summer on the Cape Cod

Took a late afternoon nap with a gentle breeze coming in the window of the bedroom. Outside I could hear the insistent chirp of a cardinal, the raspy "meow" of a catbird, and the piercing cries of young osprey demanding parental attention from the nest down on the nearby trail.

Out to Osterville.

Took a drive out to Osterville. We took a long walk down to the marina and adjacent neighborhoods admiring fine clapboard houses. Ate lunch at Keeper's a small marina restaurant offering a great lobster salad...a pile of lobster on top of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, mandarin oranges, and those chinese wonton noodle thingies.

Stopped at the historic Bay View Cemetary in Waquoit. A lot of husbands outlived several wives in these area in the late 1800s early 1900s.

Can I just say I love that your vacations consist of naps and good food and friends? Oh, and nature.

We could so hang out together Aunt Annette!
