Update on Cape Cod Living & Autumn Salad

      The days are getting shorter, it's a full blood moon this week and a lunar eclipse, the leaves in some parts of New England have already peaked their peeping season and we on the Cape are still looking for ours to begin. Most of the bogs have been harvested, but a few have been left to stand a while longer. The pond that have had their waters used to flood the bogs are now lined with cranberry remnants as the water returned to the ponds get the missed leftovers and are now yummy treats for small woodland critters and flow with any kind of feathers.

A Hard Sell

Selling anything is really hard work for sales people. I went to the Lakeville Art's Festival, and I swear that date brings rain. It's a small event in town, but everyone likes a sunny day to spend time walking their dogs and looking at the crafts. The sun was nowhere to be seen bringing a day of clouds and dampness. You know, that cold raw feeling in the air. Selling books at crafts shows is a tough business. Selling books on alcohol abuse is even harder.

Weekend Hiking & a Smooth Sailing Cocktail

      With the weather so nice, this past weekend I went on a few mini hikes at a few of our conservation paths and along one of the town beaches. First stop was the Swan Pond Conservation paths in DennisPort off Center Street. This Path system is not overly long but has some really nice view out over Swan Pond. The paths wind around and are relatively clear. There are two paths that do go down to the waters edge but they are pretty steep and if wet could be really slippery. There are a couple of benches you can just sit and relax on taking in the wonderful scenery.
