No, not that guy, me; Stoutcat!
In case you wondered where I’ve been since last week, I’ll tell you first what I haven’t been doing. I haven’t been at work; I haven’t been spending upwards of $100 a week for my public transportation; I also haven’t been spending 5 hours commuting to and from work each day. What I have been doing is spending time here:
That’s Red River Beach, in Harwich, MA on beautiful Cape Cod. Even though the East Coast is still sweltering in the clutches of a merciless heat wave, the beach has been lovely, with cooling breezes, refreshing water, and no tar! With sunscreen, a beach umbrella, comfy beach chair, some cool water, and a good Patricial Cornwell novel, I’m happy as a clam each day.
Then there’s seafood fresh from the local fish market, the town band playing on the green, and best of all, Cape Cod League baseball games most evenings. You want to know the best thing of all? I actually live here!
I’ll be blogging sporadically over the next week or so while I enjoy summer here on Cape Cod, and then it will be back to the regular schedule.
But until then, life is good.
ADDENDUM: In no way do I mean to belittle the troubles now being faced by Gulf Coast citizens when I mention the lack of tar up here. Cape Cod has had its own share of oil spills, so we understand what you are living through.
