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.
Nice Wellfleet house, short stroll to town on a sand/gravel road. Some core of this house is mid-1800s, but much done since then. Magnificent tree. I usually know these things, but not sure what species. I did not wish to intrude.
Lovely looking place. I'll be on the Cape this weekend, staying in an 1860's era sea captain's house. The sea captain isn't around anymore, my wife's family has owned the place since 1980. Short stroll to a private beach (neighborhood). The only downside to such a house is that there are always little projects that need doing. Repairing a wooden bulkhead this weekend. Probably a few other small issues to address too. But I'm not complaining. Low tide is around 7am so we'll be able to collect quahogs and then swimming will be ideal in the afternoon.
I think it's probably safe to reveal one memorable starlit summer night at Cape Cod in the late Seventies when my girlfriend of the time and I lay in the sand giggling and kissing while US military aircraft kept flying out to the ocean over us (from what I today know is Joint Base Cape Cod).
The other memory of have of Cape Cod was the simple pleasure of a large ice-cold bottle of Bud and a small carton of fried clams on a sweltering day near Provincetown.
This Wellfleet of which you speak is simply too nice a place to let the Yankees continue to be in control there. Cue a War of Southern Aggression to occupy it! :) After all, summers are sweltering down here, and a summer cottage on the Cape would be so very nice.
