Friday, June 15th., I left to spend 4 days visiting with my cousins, on Cape Cod and I returned late this afternoon, June 18. As always we drove to several of the Cape's beaches. I just LOVE the BEACH!!!
Saturday we stopped at several yard sales. I found several items that just had to come home with me and didn't spend much money at all. I bought a bird feeder for the window that can be filled from indoors, and we can watch the birds without them seeing us for $5.00. Now Tom has to attach it to the window. This feeder will probably drive the cats crazy.
Several nice cookbooks...50 cents each. A nice Kensington metal square cake plate..50 cents. One of my aunt's had given everyone in the family one of these cake plates many years ago. I picked up a book for my brother for 50 cents..Restoring Model A Fords. Paul has a convertible Model A, and so I thought he would enjoy the book. The book had lots of photos, diagrams, and info. Also, I found 2 new 9 inch glass pie plates, a big copper canning tub minus the cover. My mother has pictures of my older brother brother and I when we were real little cooling off in one of these copper tubs on a hot summers day. I'm not sure what I will do with this yet, but I wanted it. I also bought 2 board games for 50 cents each..Scrabble, which I always pick up when I see one. I use the letters in my art projects. The second game was a Wizard of Oz board game that I bought because I liked the game pieces and cards that were in the game.

We took rides everyday..twice we went to see the seals at the Chatham Fish Pier. I love watching the seals and thankfully there were no great white sharks in the area. There were lots of seals both days, but most were too far out to get a good photo. When the fishing boats are in, unloading their catch there are plenty of seals around the boats near the pier.

in the shoals lots of seals could be seen bobbing in the water in the distance as it was low tide. I couldn't believe people were swimming as it was windy and cool that day.
In Dennis, on Route 6A, I took a picture of a male bluebird that landed on the telephone wire. The bird kept flitting from one side of the road to the other in the same area. There must be a nest nearby.
Bluebirds are so beautiful. Wish there were more of them around. I also saw lots of other birds in the Mulberry tree in my cousins back yard. The birds love eating the berries from that tree.
Sunday afternoon while we were riding along Rte. 6A we stopped at Kate's and got some clam fritters. Kate's clam fritters are so very good.
While at my cousins I dug up some money plants in the back backyard to plant in my flower garden.
The plant will change from green to papery brown when ripe, and the pod will peel and the seeds between the layers will drop out to reseed themselves.
Roses were in bloom everywhere..so very pretty.
Green Holly berries already on the holly trees.
Hydrangea were blooming..a month earlier than they usually bloom.
In the mornings and early evenings we saw baby bunnies everywhere we went. The photo looks like a full grown rabbit, but I used my zoom lens to get the photo of the baby bunny.
Today before coming home we went to Heartbeat Quilts, Hyannis and then to Orleans to Murray's Fabric's . I bought some fabric and took a picture of this Betty Boop in Heartbeats. I took this picture of her, because I signed up for a swap and I am using Betty Boop. I will post a picture of my post card soon.
I took a lot more photos, but I am having issues with the computer right now, and having difficulty uploading photos. Hope you enjoyed what I did manage to share.
