Cape Cod Vacation, Part 2

Windmill Weekend in Eastham is a fun event. We always enjoy the annual sand sculpture contest. This fellow won best of show:

And there is always a parade. Pop and I are trying to keep warm while we wait for it:

To my mind, a good parade always includes a pipe band:

These folks were very entertaining:

Of course, being New England, no parade would be complete without a unit of Minutemen:

Mostly, since the weather was mild and mostly sunny, we hung out with Pop, enjoying his house in the woods:

We did spend a morning picking up interesting rocks and flotsam on Duck Harbor Beach:

And one afternoon, we drove down to Chatham (where incidentally, Brian and I spent our honeymoon 31 years ago) to see if we could spot the seals that have been seen around the harbor. Can you see them?

A closeup:
As always, we had a wonderful time. I can't wait to go back next fall!
