Love The Bright Yellow Coneflowers In My Yard On Cape Cod!

Every spring we look for some new flowers to plant in the yard to give it a little more color. Hopefully we pick ones that will stagger their blooming throughout the summer.(Click on blog link for other photo.)

I had always liked the beautiful Coneflowers that bloomed in Rocky Mountain National Park, so I thought… why not?

When we bought this Coneflower it said that they grow 3-4 feet. This one has grown to about 8 feet and is just gorgeous! It is such a treat to look out the kitchen window and see the bright yellow flowers blooming in August as most of the other flowers are starting to die off.

Arey’s Pond Annual Cat Gathering In Pleasant Bay On Cape Cod.

Yesterday was Arey’s Pond Annual Cat Gathering in Pleasant Bay.  (Click on blog link for other photos.)

The Cat Gathering is one of the largest gatherings of catboats on the East Coast. Catboats and other classic wooden boats are invited to participate in this just-for-fun regatta through Little Pleasant Bay, into Pleasant Bay and back.

It was a perfect day with a good wind and sunny skies and lots of catboats out in the bay. I counted about 90 boats in Pleasant Bay! Wow!  It was quite a sight to see!

 

2021 Arey’s Pond 14 Worlds Regatta On Cape Cod.

Yesterday was Arey’s Pond’s 2021 14 World’s Regatta on Little Pleasant Bay and Big Pleasant Bay.  The regatta was the best of three US Sailing sanctioned races using a windward-leeward course. (Click on blog link for other photos.)

Two races took place in Little Pleasant Bay, and one took place in Big Pleasant Bay. The goal with this event is to work towards making the Arey’s Pond 14′ Catboat a US Sailing recognized one design class.

It was such fun to watch the races, certainly a group of talented sailors out there sailing! If you missed the races yesterday, you can see Arey’s Pond Annual Cat Gathering today on Pleasant Bay.
