Maine at the Cape

Maine does Cape Cod 7/08

Before I tell you about my trip to Maine, I have to back up and share my "other" Maine friends coming to the Cape. My roommate from college and her family came down to visit and celebrate our 'younger' friend's 40th birthday.

We had a very slow ride out to South Beach on the "refuge" boat. It's just what we call it. It is a hull of a boat with a crappy motor that can fit a bunch of people on it. So we're not the Kennedy's, we're over it.

We had a great time at the beach. It was a bit breezy, so the kids played towel kites or something. Who needs real kites? My sister's Berniese Mountain dog reeked havoc with the piping plovers until the girl that was hired to sit on the beach all day and protect these little shore birds told us to keep him on a leash. Yes, I said that right, OUR GOVERNMENT HIRES PEOPLE TO SIT ON THE BEACH ALL DAY AND PROTECT LITTLE SHORE BIRDS. Don't get me started.
"Piping Plovers Taste Like Chicken" notable bumper sticker.

Of course, a trip to our house is not complete without horseback riding in your pajamas.
I know, we live a crazy life.
Tomorrow...... Cape Cod does Maine.

I think I love your life.

Seriously, someone is paid to watch birds?? Can you pull in some favors and get me a job ????

Sounds like you had fun!!
Probably waaaayyy more fun than those Kennedy's!! ;)

Wouldn't you be embarrassed to admit to anyone that you were actually getting PAID to protect birds?!
How have they survived all of these years before we intervened?!

He he he. I was looking for one of those stickers while I was there. The birds are cute but PAYING someone to WATCH them? Eek

How on earth did the birds survive for so long without a government paid watcher??? That means you and I pay her salary and we ought to be able to tell her to kiss our dog's .... That is exactly the kind of thing that gets me on my soapbox, for all that's worth. I want to go riding in my jammies, too.

WWOW's Hallie was bragging about her prize so I had to come check out your blog... I'll be back. What fun you have!!!
