Coming to the end of another April Vacation Week

It's been a beautiful week on Cape Cod. Not too hot, not too cold, mostly sunshine.

The water has been remarkably calm and clear - hopefully the big fish will be returning to these waters any day now. Mmmm, fresh striper and bluefish.

The neighborhood has been relatively quiet as opposed to recent years during this week. Many people seem to have opted for an even sunnier school vacation this year, considering the ultra-grey winter we all just endured. There were a lot of landscapers and workmen about, though, getting everyone's homes and gardens readied for the coming season.

Summer soon...

Beautiful Spring Weather

The beaches are looking pretty good - although the water is still pretty cold. The sand situation over on the Seaway each side is looking really good - so glad we didn't end up putting a lot of work and money into restoring the beach this spring. Mother Nature did it for us.

Farewell to a piece of the local scenery

The "Jolly Captain" lost his head.
