A Day On Cape Cod

17 08 2014

We had the opportunity to spend a day on Cape Cod. It was a very clear day. Not a cloud in the sky. We stopped of for lunch for a lobster roll as we drove down route 6 and had a nice conversation with the waitress. She recommend a number of great locations in the area we could take some photographs and I do believe we visited them all. Including a number of Cape Cod Light Houses we we even climbed the stairs to the top of one of them. We stumbled on Uncle Tim’s Bridge and Island that was surrounded by a salt marsh at low tide we we could see baby crabs running about and into their sand holes they must call home. We walked along the beach at low tide and saw a boat stuck in the sand at low tide standing upright only by its keel. Never saw that before and my shoes got wet getting that photo. And an other boat with anchor attached both just sitting on the sand. but made for a nice photo. All in all it was a great day as we ended up on the tip of the cape driving by all of the sand dunes, through Wellfleet on to Provincetown were we had dinned over looking the harbor. After we walked around down town Provincetown we headed home. Below are a few photos we took during our day on the Cape. We hope you enjoy them.

37,000 Flags on Display on A Hill In The Boston Public Garden

We had a great day in Boston walking around The Boston Public Garden. On the hill we came across 37,000 flags. Each one representing a Massachusetts fallen Hero. I thought it was a interesting display where people can reflect on the meaning of Memorial Day.

This display of flags is presented on the hill in the Boston Public Gargen. It was a very impressive sight for sure, and when you read what was on the sign you will understand.

Below is was written on a sign by the display of flags…

To all that served or are currently serving. Thank you for your service.

“Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations, that we have forgotten, as a people, the cost of a free and undivided Republic,”
– General John A. Logan, Grand Army of the Republic, May 5, 1868

Memorial Day isn’t just another holiday.

This garden of 37,000 flags was planted in memory of every fallen Massachusetts service member from the Revolutionary War to the present. These flags will be on display throughout memorial Day weekend for your observation and reflections. Please remember and honor the ultimate sacrifices of our local heroes.
