Old Cape Cod…

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…

  1. To Someone…
    My apologies to “Someone” who left a nice message on this post this morning. I read it to my friend as we were driving down the street and when I went to ‘like’ it so it would appear on the blog it disappeared completely. I am so sorry, especially since I love to read your comments. This isn’t the first time that I mistakenly deleted a message, and both times I was using the phone when I did it. So thank you for the kind words…

  2. I just entered “Cape Cod” into the WordPress search field and found your lovely blog post. I like that song, and I like your images of the Cape Cod Canal (complete with wildlife — a heron?). I spend two weeks camping in North truro each summer and always feel an emotional lift when I see one of the bridges over the canal. Now that I am home (in Boston area) I am glad to be reminded that Cape Cod still exists! Now, as a fan of hydrangeas, I am going to check out another one of your blog posts…
