Cape Cod in the Fall
Although summer is over and the last days of warm weather are upon us, the Cape is still a wonderful place to be in the fall. I was finishing a scrapbook this morning of sketches and photos of summer and the girls on the Cape, and went to mark my calendar for upcoming events. The fall is always so incredible here in New England, and the beach towns along the cape are no exception.
I discovered a nice site called Cape Cod Today and learned all kinds of information about what is going on this fall on the cape. I noticed they have a blog on there called blogchowder. I have really come to love New England calm chowder, although I occasionally make Manhattan clam chowder to remind me of home. I still cannot pronounce "chawda", like the homey's say, but they ignore my New York accent when I honor them by ordering their specialty.
There is this incredible restaurant here called Legal Seafood and they clearly have the best New England clam chowder I have ever had. I found a link to the recipe for their chowder and I have successfully made it a few times now. The restaurant is so good that it is mentioned in the book 1000 places to see before you die. A book I bought my husband for our wedding anniversary, because I think he has probably been to most of the places metioned in that book.
I know that the blog Just be Connected is having a weekend of events for bloggers, and a special Creative Bazaar on Saturday from 11 A.M. until 6 o'clock P.M. on October 13, 2007 at Four Points by Sheraton in Hyannis, Massachusetts. When I found out that Kari known in blogland as Artsy Mama was going to be there, I marked my calendar.
What a lovely occasion to visit all those incredible artisans I visit in blogland. Artsy Mama was featured in the first issue of Artful Blogging magazine and I truly love her blog. When I received my copy of this magazine I carried it around with me for days so that I didn't miss a page. It featured so many of the blogs I love, as well as introducing me to new ones. I read yesterday on Artsy Mama's blog that her work was also featured in Romantic Country magazine. She is always connected to special events in blogland and hosts quite a few herself. She has information about the latest swaps and has her own Etsy store. I look forward to visiting the Creative Bazaar and hope to meet her while I am visiting all the booths.
Well, I have marked my calendar for day trips to the Cape and to enjoy every moment of this glorious season. I wanted to mention that there is a fabulous bike trail from Falmouth to Woods Hole that we really enjoy. My husband and daughter Ashley did that one summer and then hopped onto the ferry to Martha's Vineyard from Wood's Hole. What a lovely place. A great place to take the bikes and ride along the ocean as you head towards the charming town of Woods Hole.
Well, I am back to finish up a scrapbook page or two before I leave the house to do some errands. I will take my camera with me of course in case I see a flickr moment to capture along the way.
