Do you know the song? When Charley and I would go to Cape Cod I used to burst into song every time we came into sight of the Cape Cod Canal. If you are really old you know the song, or if you had a husband with a collection of music that included everything back to the ‘40s, and nothing past the 70s, you’d also be in luck. In my travels on the Cape I came across Patty Page Dr., so there’s a hint for you.
If you’re fond of sand dunes, and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there,
You’re sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod…
If you like the taste of a lobster stew
Served by a window with an ocean view,
You’re sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod.
Winding roads that seem to beckon you,
Miles of green beneath a sky of blue,
Church bells chiming on a Sunday morn,
Remind you of the town where you were born.
If you spend an evening you’ll want to stay,
Watching the moonlight on Cape Cod Bay,
You’re sure to fall in love with Old Cape Cod.
I thought that I ought to write a post with photos to illustrate the lyrics, but even ‘miles of green beneath a sky of blue’ proved to be a bit too much to ask for until I was on the road heading off the Cape, which is when these pictures were taken.
The road trip continues…
