sunset, some rocks, a dog, scrabble, sunset
enjoying the cape immensely. it's cooler out here than in the city, and we've had many utterly perfect days.
some unbelievable sunsets, too.
unlike most places on the east coast, out in truro, you can see the sun set over the water (i.e., cape cod bay):
that's the p-town tower in the distance:
we've been spending nuff time at the beach. i like to walk along the surf's edge and spy the washed-over rocks in all their semi-translucent splendor:
you can try to pick them up,
but they soon lose their luster, unless one keeps them wet:
they look even more enchanting when, under water, the light hits them just right:
nature does some magical things, like weaving seaweed into pseudo-glyphs:
our pal, sam the dog, appears to have as much fun as we do at the beach:
but beware, he's excitable and has trouble with inanimate objects that act animate. here he's barking at a rock i picked up and was holding in my hand:
when it comes down to it, though, he's a gentle pup:
so i think we'll refrain from boiling him for dinner, unlike less lucky creatures:
talk about lucky creatures, i actually beat bec at scrabble the other day, which is a rare occurence. she may look patient here, but she's quite vicious:
the cape's terrain is rather distinctive. here's a shot from the province lands, where sand dunes and knotty pines abound:
i recklessly snapped pics from my bike while curving downhill through some sandy patches. i paid for it with a nasty crash and a big bruise on the knee. this is a shot, mostly of the sky, that i took on my way down. nice sky, though:
i'll leave you with a few more quintessentially cape cod shots, then it's back to the beach with me. you can look for more socio-musical analysis next week. thanks for coming by, though.
more soon. more here.
