Pre-Memorial Day Tease Draws Crowds

What a beautiful day here in Wellfleet and hot, according to Sven! How happy I was to get home after a weekend in the big city! Lots of folks took advantage of this early tease for a pre-Memorial Day trip to the Outer Cape. On Friday, seamen were already putting boats in the water. Restaurants opened all along Route 6. Everyone who came must have been glad they did. Our Green Room guest went hiking on Great Island and left me a note saying she had had a great time. The foliage up in Boston was a week more advanced, and I got sensory overload walking through the crowds in the Public Garden, past a particularly popular flower bed of pink and yellow tulips, the scene of much jostling as Japanese tourists snapped loved ones posed behind the colorful display.
