Sunday Blatherings and New Books


This past week we had the pleasure on spending several days on Cape Cod with 75-79 degree mostly sunny weather, which is very unusual for Massachusetts mid October.  We spent most of our time in Chatham and Provincetown with briefer moments at The National Seashore in Wellfleet and Dennisport.  The picture above is of the Provincetown Public Library and the photo beneath is The Rose Dorothea Schooner which is housed inside the children's department. It's really amazing and not to be missed if ever in the area.

The park near the Chatham Inn had a pumpkin patch with Hillary and Donald, as well as many other fun pumpkin exhibits.


NEW BOOKS





Today the weather is more typical of New England weather. It's 53 degrees and sunny with a high of 59 slated for today. Today's plans call for a lot of nesting: a little cooking, a little reading and perhaps a short walk.  Hope everyone has a great week.

  1. It looks like such a fun week! We had record highs here last week and woke up to 38 degrees this morning. It'll be back in the 80s tomorrow.

  2. We went to Cape Cod at the beginning of the month, but you had much warmer weather! Looks like we visited many of the same places, too. I'm looking forward to Wally Lamb's new book... enjoy your Sunday!

  3. The time on Cape Cod sounds and looks wonderful! I have many happy memories from time there (mostly in Falmouth) during college when I would go there with a friend during vacations.

  8. Cape Cod isn't somewhere I've ever been but would like to. Looks lovely. Book wise, The Quarry caught my eye as I read it years ago going through an Iain Banks phase. I remember loving it at the time.

    1. Cape Cod is heavy heavy traffic in summer but perfect to visit in spring or fall.

  13. It looks like you had a great trip. I love that photo of the Nauset Lighthouse. It looks like it could be a painting!

    Looks like we're going to have more warm weather here. 80+ today. I'm not complaining!!

    It's been a long time since I've read Wally Lamb. I'm curious about his new book.
