We're back from our family vacation on Cape Cod, which was lovely. I managed to read The Maytrees: A Novel, by Annie Dillard, which is set mostly in Provincetown, and which I enjoyed very much. I also read a graphic novel that my sister-in-law is reading for her book club, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, by Alison Bechdel, which I also thoroughly enjoyed. More on these later. Here are a few photos from the trip...
The woods behind the place we stayed. Out here in Southern California, we don't get woods as dense as this...
The path to the beach, through the dunes.
Beach plums that grow in the dunes.
The beach where we stayed.
The general store in Brewster, MA, with penny candy and fudge. The sign in the window says, "Beach Books."
The beach near Wellfleet, on a windy day. The kids were supposed to take a surfing lesson, but it was cancelled because the waves were too big! (Surprising to those of us from California...)
The bay at Wellfleet, MA.
Me doing what I do best.
