Torrential Rains On Cape Cod Early Saturday Morning


We woke up to the rain pounding on our roof early Saturday morning here on Cape Cod. It was weird because we did not see any weather alerts before going to bed.  When Phil went down to check the basement about 12:30 AM, there was a lot of water coming in the hatchway and through the window wells.

I spent the next 3 hours bailing out the window wells outside in the pouring rain while running back inside to help Phil mop the basement floor. What a job! Not too much sleep that night!

When we finally did get up with a total of 4 1/2 hours of sleep, we learned that we had gotten 5″ of rain in just over 4 hours. Incredible!

I took this photograph of the beach at Boat Meadow where I always walk and where we like to relax. There were 2 huge gullies from the parking lot to the water and one had taken the bench down with it.

It is truly amazing what Mother Nature can do, especially with the power of water.



Dead Low Tide At Boat Meadow On Cape Cod


The tide was really low when I took a ride by Boat Meadow yesterday morning. You can walk out for it seems like miles on Cape Cod Bay when the tide is so low.

And, as you can see, the boats will not be getting off the sandbar for a few hours.

Pretty, don’t you think? The clouds were so ¬†dramatic!

Love That Early Morning Bike Ride On Cape Cod!


It is the most wonderful feeling getting on my bike at 6:00 in the morning before most people are even awake and taking that 10-12 mile bike ride. There is no one around, except that occasional other biker so you have the whole place to yourself.

The views are breathtaking and each day is totally different, depending on the weather and the tides. I took this photograph of my bike at Boat Meadow when it was almost high tide.

It doesn’t get much prettier…
