*SELF PROMOTION * BOOK SIGNINGS THIS WEEK - Mermaid Books for ages 9 and up

Have you read my mermaid books with the kids yet? Great summer fiction set on Cape Cod, in the fictional neighborhood of Windmill Point, with adventure to please boys and girls alike!

I'll be out in Provincetown today - Tuesday July 29 - at the Whydah Pirate Museum from 12-3 signing copies of both books.

I'll also be at WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS in Chatham on Main Street this Saturday August 2 from 2-4.

Both towns make for fun summer excursions with (or without) the kids! Hope to see you there!

Goooood Morning, Old Mill Point!

Good Morning and don't forget your sunscreen!

It's a beautiful day out there despite the overcast clouds - the humidity is gone and the air feels wonderful! But you can still get sunburn despite the clouds - so be careful out there!

Last night's annual meeting had a quorum (including the proxies mailed in) and discussed the business of running the neighborhood. Some questions were asked and answered, and everyone left satisfied.

One piece of new business was brought up by Angelo, who would like feedback from people with moorings in the Herring River.

If you were unable to attend the meeting, the minutes will be typed up for distribution. If you have any questions or concerns that you'd like addressed, you should always feel free to reach out to any board member and ask. If you're not sure who to address the question to, you can always call Mark (the current president) or Carol (current clerk) or me, Katie, (current treasurer) and we can point you in the proper direction.

Other new business included a thank you from Helen Duffy for the birthday flowers the neighborhood sent - she turned 105 in June! As soon as the scanner feels like working again (hopefully later today) I'll get the note and picture scanned and onto this blog.

Have a great weekend!

Mermaid Book Signing at the Provincetown Pirate Museum - Monday July 7!

Tomorow - Monday July 7 from noon to 3 p.m. - is my first official book signing for book 2 in my Mermaids of Cape Cod series! Yes, I'm excited! Oh, and yesh, I'll have copies of the first book on hand for signing and purchase as well!

I'm traveling to P-town, out at the very tip of Cape Cod, to the famous pirate museum. I had two wonderful book signings there last summer and am hoping for a few more this summer!

From the Museum's website:
Commanded by the famed pirate Sam Bellamy, the Whydah was wrecked off Wellfleet in 1717, taking with her the treasures of fifty plundered ships.
According to Cape Cod legend, Bellamy was returning to his lady-love, Maria Hallett, the “Witch of Wellfleet”, when his ship met disaster in one of the worst storms to strike the eastern seaboard.
Only two men of 146 made it to the beach alive, making the Whydah wreck the worst ever on the shores of the Cape.
Bellamy’s loss was history’s gain, however, as the contents of his once-proud flagship represent a unique look into the lives of the pirates, and an unprecedented cross-cultural sampling of treasures from the world of the 18th century.
Discovered by underwater explorer Barry Clifford, this archaeological shipwreck recovery project has been named a National Geographic Society “Special Event”, and our Provincetown Museum is the headquarters for our ongoing underwater archaeological missions.

Happy Fourth of July!

The annual parade was another huge success ~ and managed to almost finish before the deluge began! Here are a few photos of yesterday's event (thanks, Carol!)... feel free to send your own and we'll get them posted!

 ...and I don't know what the rest of you did after the rain and wind kicked up, but the kids at our house all decided to jump in the pool! Swimming during a hurricane makes for a good story, I guess.
The weather is supposed to clear today after lunchtime, and be beautiful for the rest of the weekend. Reminder that the neighborhood is teeming with small kids this weekend, so drive slow!
