Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the golden sun dripped, windy, wondrous island of Nantucket! Good to be with you on this Tuesday early morning, ‘down on the docks’ of ye ‘ole Hyannis Harbor; broadcasting LIVE once again on a breezy, beautiful Twenty-Second Day of November, 2016. Issuing a sentiment over this ’series of tubes’ known as the world wide web (credit: the late Alaska Senator Ted Stevens), echoing from a classic Pink Floyd song,
“…wish you were here.”
Thanksgiving is only two days away and the weather here in New England is finally feeling it’s season, the Berkshires picking up over a foot of snow this past storm, with wicked winds howling all across this sand bar yesterday, cancelling trips to the aforementioned islands and creating a virtual ghost town wherever one perceives…. Soon, Christmas Lights will shine brightly on that fabled island of Nantucket, ushering in the annual “Christmas Stroll”. A week long event that takes one back in ‘time’ to another era, a simpler time when our fellow man was not engrossed in the must have technology that imprisons humans in a virtual reality when the reality ‘on the ground’ should be all one really needs.
If one has the means, Sea Cape Cod would highly recommend booking a flight on ‘the blade’, a private jet firm on the island, or any other Lear you might catch a ride with, winging one’s way over to enjoy some holiday cheer, perhaps some eggnog? before it’s already 2017. The experience you will have on “Nantucket”, translation from the indigenous, Ancient Wampanoag Tribe forming the words, ‘far’ and ‘away’, will be unparalleled, unforgettable and unique.
Just like the incoming Trump administration, whose vow to take out two regulations for every new one imposed sounds akin to what the white man did so many years ago when ‘incorporating’ these famous and fabulous islands such as the one 27 nautical miles south/southeast of where this ‘message in a bottle’ is being written.
Have a great day y’all! WE will, as always, leave that Light on for ya!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
