Heading To Otakon With A New Comic

Cape Cod Museum of Natural History

We picked up a membership at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History at my school's annual auction.

Last week was our first trip out there. We checked out the museum, with it's aquarium section, first, but what the Kiddo really loved was the bird watching room. They have big windows with a view out to the marsh, bird feeders set up nearby and a live camera feed to an osprey nest.

Kiddo had fun using the binoculars and watching the mama osprey and her hatchlings on the monitor.

We saw red winged blackbirds and cardinals at the feeders, plus lots of chipmunks.

After spending some time in the museum, we went walking on one of the trails, crossing the marsh on a boardwalk to Wing's Island. We walked through a nice mix of terrain including marsh, woods, hills, and beach.

Summer 2012 Begins: Chowdafest in Hyannis

So... um... Today is Fathers' Day (wishing a happy day to all the Dads out there!), and when I logged onto this blog, I discovered that the last entry was from, well, Fathers' Day last year.

I'm going to try to do better than that.

Anyway, it's been a good year.

Last Sunday was, in some ways, the traditional kickoff of the summer season here at Ogremoot. My school had their graduation the day before, which was the last event I was required to attend. At that point, my remaining duties consisted of straightening up my room and turning in my grades (which, as of this writing, both got done on time, so I am officially done with work for the summer!).

The day after graduation, last Sunday, was the WCOD Chowderfest in Hyannis.

So off we went to the Melody Tent to sample some chowda!

Here are Gynn, Miranda, and the Kiddo, and a shot of the Kiddo enjoying some chowda!

This year's entertainment was by Cape African Drum and Dance, who put on a great show!

We've had a few other summer adventures this week. I'll be catching up on those and getting to some writing talk soon! I promise not to wait until NEXT Father's Day for another entry!

Now off to go spend the afternoon with my Dad!
