Looking out at Buzzards Bay again tonight, and it occurred to me that I’m likely going to spend more time here in the winter and spring than I will this summer.  Strange to think that, but the reality is I only have so much vacation time and the family’s demand for the house is very high in summer.  Nothing shocking in that I suppose.

Winter brings its own benefits.  No traffic, no lines at the Lobster Trap, no mosquitoes…   but no swims in the bay, no reading a book on the beach while the sun dries you off, no casual deck time.  But I’m on the cape, and it’s hard to find anything wrong with that.
