The 14th Annual Eastham Turnip Festival On Cape Cod Was A Huge Success!


Yesterday was  Eastham’s 14th Annual Turnip Festival which was a huge success. What a blast! There were hundreds of people there, enjoying everything there was to do from festival vendors selling everything you can think of,  live entertainment, activities and crafts for the kids, a Turnip Cook-Off, and the annual Turnip Shuck-Off. It was a real treat when Suzanne and Scotty from The Dunes Radio asked Phil and me to time the Shuck-Off contest. What a hoot!

In the cafeteria there was a Turnip Cook-Off provided by many of the area restaurants where you could sample a variety of turnip creations from Turnip Bisque, Turnip Popovers, Turnip Slaw, Turnip Bread, Turnip Baklava, Turnip Cannolis and much, much more. Everything was delicious! Jim Russo, Executive Director of the Eastham Chamber, was helping out behind the counter.

The Turnip Festival,  presented by the Eastham Library, was so much fun.  If you didn’t make it there this year, put it on your calendar for next year, but make sure you get there early! What a great event for the whole family!


Gorgeous Day For A Bike Ride On Cape Cod!


Yesterday was a glorious day,  sunny and in the lower 70s… a perfect day for a bike ride! I took off to Boat Meadow Beach which is where I took this photograph. It was high tide and there were  people sitting on the beach and one little boy was swimming. The clouds were spectacular!

Then I biked over to Rock Harbor which is another beautiful place to visit any time of the year. Then on to the Cape Cod Rail Trail over the salt marshes and home. Who ever thought I could bike in shorts and a t-shirt at the end of October?  I wasn’t going to miss this gorgeous day!

Beautiful View From The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod


The views at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary are many and they are breathtaking. I took this photograph from the lookout on the Goose Pond Trail heading out toward the beach. You can see Tri-Island in the distance on the right which is also a fun hike. You may be treated to many shorebirds feeding in the marshes.

In the far distance you can see the white beaches of Wellfleet and Jeremy Point. It doesn’t get much prettier!


Fall Colors At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod


Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is one of my favorites places to hike. There are so many different interesting trails. This one is the Silver Spring Trail which meanders along Silver Spring and then across a bridge and along the opposite side.

You can see fall beginning as the leaves are starting to turn such pretty colors along the trails.

I love this tree that arches over the trail…

Surfing Backwards At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod


The waves were up with the remnants of Hurricanes Jose, so the surfers were in their glory. This surfer was strutting his stuff at Coast Guard Beach and had everyone watching.

Notice how he starts facing frontward and then turns around so he is surfing backwards. Pretty cool!
