Awesome Paragliders At White Crest Beach On Cape Cod!


It was the perfect day and the perfect place for the paragliders to set up and show everyone what they do!  And, were they good! It was so much fun to watch them maneuver up and down the beach… over the water and over the dunes.  (Click on blog link for other photo.)

In doing some reading, I did not realize that White Crest is one of the few  approved “launching sites” in Massachusetts for paragliders and hang gliders. How cool… and right in our back yard!

I loved these 2 photographs of their colorful para gliders. The sky, as well as the para gliders, was amazing!

Saving An Eastern Box Turtle On A Cape Cod Road.


We were taking a ride the other day when Phil suddenly stopped the car. He said there was something in the road and wondered what it was. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

As we back up, I jumped out and saw this Eastern Box Turtle in the middle of the road. It was about 6-7″ in diameter and was huddled all inside his shell, as we must have scared him driving by.

I carefully picked it up and put it in the woods by the side of the road. Thankfully, no other cars had gotten there first. Beautiful little turtle, don’t you think? Look at those patterns on its shell!
