Walks on the Cape 2021

This walk was to/from our beach down the street. This is the walk that happens most frequently, for obvious reasons. 😃

Someone put up this adorable little free library. These are such a fun idea and I'm glad they've caught on in a lot of places.

This walk was a hike through the woods that I did one morning while Sam was at camp. These woods are across the street from the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History (that's where he goes to camp). 

Don't trip on the roots!

This was at the base of a tree and I thought it was sweet. (Even though "everyday" should be "every day"!)

Sometimes I daydream about going for walks like these holding hands with a man who I love and who loves me just as much. I miss having a loving husband and being in a good, strong marriage. Maybe that's in the cards for me in the future, but if not, I'll just continue to daydream about it (until I become too jaded for even that 😏).

These woods have a definite Lord of the Rings feel to them that I like.

The final walk of this post happened behind the Museum. First you walk across marshland to a historic island called "Wing Island," then you go through the woods, and one of the trails in the woods takes you to this pretty stream that cuts through the marsh grass. Other trails take you straight out to the seashore. This is one of my favorite places to walk and explore on the Cape.
