“Here’s looking at you kid…”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 10:25 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy, misty, mysterious, magnificent, majestic island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on a rather grey mid-Monday morning ‘down on the docks’ of ye ‘ole Hyannis Harbor; The First Day of May, 2017.  According to the latest ‘data’ compiled by the cracker jack “journalists” over at Reuters, it’s “May Day” in Russia… Reminding one that people all around this ‘big, blue, spinning ball’ “Lost in Space”, everyone, everyone, loves the arrival of Spring and the hope, grace and growth, love, light and frogs it offers; regardless of one’s ’social status’ with das ‘Homeland’ National Security Agency.

“We got our EYE on you boy!”

This empirical fact was evident on the fabled aforementioned ‘far away isle’ of Nantucket this past week end, as one may be able to SEA above deck. That’s right, Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers made an appearance Saturday at high noon on those old school cobblestones of Main Street, winning the top prize at the 43rd Annual “Daffodil Days” antique car parade; all makes and models adorned with the golden hue of nature’s funniest, daffiest looking flower, ‘the Daffodil’. Indeed, this rich, golden yellow could be seen from Siasconset to Madaket, Tom Nevers to Jetties; especially noted the beautiful ladies’ hats, as they casually walked about beautiful, blocked off downtown; the exquisite boutiques, restaurants, and bars that draw people from all over the face of the Earth. Golden retrievers, Newfoundlands, Yellow Labs, Mastiffs, Great Danes, Irish Setters; an adorable Maltese and tough Irish Wolfhound all got in on the fun, advertising the day’s color around their necks, accenting their floppy ears, cute noses, tails and faces in the ‘daffy dog parade’; bringing a smile to even the most hardened hearts, i.e. ‘Vader‘, whose smile was covered by his threatening black shiny helmet.  An El Camino driving Stormtrooper driving home this fantastic, annual, non-official kick off to Nantucket’s awesome summer scenes…

So, if you have not booked your “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”, with the intention to visit this island that ‘time’ forgot, a simple, yet profound question remains; “…what are you waiting for?” We will, as always, leave the LIGHT on for ya!
