We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A Bird Dog pup on a crowded Wellfleet beach (Duck Harbor). That pup can swim alongside us for 45 minutes but, having no fur (poodles have hair), he gets so chilled that his teeth chatter. In August, I can do 30 minutes in the ocean (but endlessly in the warmer Bay and harbor) without a wetsuit, as long as there are good waves to ride. I am a body-surfer, just like Obama.
Wellfleet is for swimming.
My niece is an ocean lifeguard out there. Cool job.
Lots of seals swimming off that stretch of beach. Harbor Seals or Grey Seals? I could not tell. Happy seals, anyway.
