Well season is just about upon us. Some will tell you that Memorial is the start of summer others will tell you that season really starts the middle of June when most of the schools are out. For myself, I have always circled Memorial Day as the start, as by then most of us have our grills out and started to use them. The deck and lawn furniture have been precariously placed, and for most of us NewEnglanders the outdoor showers have been reinstalled and readied for use. For those who call themselves the real Cape Coders they are ready to take that first swim, not on the Sound side but on the Bay side. Ok I like swimming, but that there water is still a bit too nippy for my liking. I will go sit on the beach and sunbath while reading a book or listening to music, but I will be darn sure that the water temps have gone up before I go headlong into the Sound. I am hoping that this year I can make up for missing all of last year do to surgery recovery, and although I am still post surgery #3, I will have had 4 to 5 months in between. I am also hoping to put the new inflatable kayak to use this summer and fall and getting out to enjoy our ponds, lakes and streams. I can already smell the coconut oil and lotion, and hear the kids playing on the beach and imagine the sail boats gliding back and forth along the beaches. Summer on Cape Cod, are you ready for it, are you anticipating it, are you so ready that you are irritating everyone around you cause that is all you can talk about is your summer vacation to Cape Cod? Well get it together, get ready cause the wait is nearly over and summer is just about here. I hope your ready, cause it's coming ready or not. No matter when it officially comes I hope you are looking forward to it, and are planning your trip to Cape Cod. Be sure to bring enough lotion so that you and the family don't burn. And bring your appetites for all the good food both seafood and otherwise that we have to offer. Plan your days wisely not to overdo, and leave plenty of time for the beach. Yes it is here, and I hope you and yours has a most happy and safe time, no matter where you are at or doing. But we all here east of the canal hope you choose to do it right here on old Cape Cod.
