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.
As the weather begins to lose the chill, looking forward to getting to the chilly Cape Cod salt water, the bug-free salty breeze, and Wellfleet Oysters. Not to mention all of the cheerful fun-loving, people (even if many are lefty nutjobs).
What am I especially looking forward to this year? Biking and /or hiking the Cape Cod Rail Trail. It's the old railroad bed that used to service NYC and Boston up to Provincetown. Now there are buses.
What do we do out there? Outdoors dawn to dusk, rain or shine, with friends and family. Dawn workout, then biking, kayaking, maybe rent a little outboard and go fish for blues and stripers, body surf in the ocean, play in one of the big ponds, take a multi-hour hike, maybe rent a little sailboat for a few hours, bird-watching whenever outdoors, seafood dinners always. Minimal internet time or inactive beaching, because that's not the way we roll out there. Time is too precious.
Be sure to ride the whole length of the rail trail from Wellfleet to Dennis and back. On the way back the trail practically passes right by Arnolds in Eastham, and they make some killer frappes. Just saying...
Nice bike/roller blade paved trails on the upper cape also. Both sides of the canal and the shining sea bikepath woods hole to north falmouth. Do also find some huge cranberry bogs to take a stroll, dogs welcome!
