Hyannis Holiday

Laura and I went to Cape Cod last weekend. Everybody wants to go to the beach in Massachusetts in November, right? Actually, we got lucky; the weather was quite nice, not quite balmy but in that general neighborhood.

Laura was there for a dance weekend, which meant I had some free time to explore. One place I visited was Hyannis, ancestral playground of the Kennedys. I took pictures.

Lawn chairs are everywhere and my mind describes them to me

"Everybody wants to go to the beach in Massachusetts in November, right?"

I always thought it was neat when I lived up there. I'm fond of the beach any time of year though and going in the water is not something that's required.

You should see it in February. Snow just looks sooooo cool over the dunes and beaches just to be washed away at the waterline. I was in awe.

Your photos are neat as always though. :)

I particularly like the photo of the lawn chair with the water background.

When I lived in Boston, I always liked going to the Cape in the winter. No crowds, and the water seemed fiercer and more beautiful.

Kind of miss Boston.

Those are really lovely! I particularly like the shell on the grass. They all have kind of a forlorn look.

I recall visiting the JFK memorial many years ago while on vacation. We also traveled all the way to Provincetown at the tip, which at that time was one of the first Hippie enclaves before it spread far and wide. It seemed very exciting at the time.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
