Setting up at Cape Cod

Cape Cod is very quite now.

The big news since I got here was that a 100 kilo black bear has been on Cape Cod for the past few weeks. I always wondered about the bear when I went outside in the dark. I always had my walking stick with me….for protection.

Good news today, they darted him in Wellfleet and took him 200 miles away off-Cape.

Not that many campers yet. The workers this year include several UK types, and Alistair from Aberdeen, he was here last year and 3 people from Connecticut, 2 Serbs and a few more coming…. John G. gave me a kilo of fresh Sea Bass and I cooked it for the Serbs and Alistair. Best fish in the world!!!

The wifi has been going off and on here, Marty is going to get a new router.. I really need wifi….just like a drug..

Last night I made my first pizza and it was great. A few days ago I took a bus to Stop and Shop and got a bunch of food… actually I am living a good life here. A good mix of aloneness and cooking for my international friends.

Last week I got a Samsung 7 inch Tab 2 and love it. Spending time setting it up. I bought a rubber cover for it, a hard cover case/stand for it. I also got a 32 gig mini-memory card for it. I will fill it up eventually.

I was somewhat depressed when I got back from Korea. I had no idea where I was the first morning I woke up in Albany. For 2 weeks my sleep pattern was out of whack. It is okay now. I put up the video of the fire eater at the mask festival in Korea. You can find it here.

Ok that is my report… looking at the world and thinking… where to next!

My new socks from Serbia. My first gift of the summer.

Home for a week

At JFK, we stayed on the ground for 2 hours waiting for clearance to take off to Detroit.  I was not happy with going to Detroit after the long trip from Seoul.  And then I had to walk a long way from from one gate to the other…. they do have a nice tunnel at the Detroit Airport which connects the terminals.

So my last flight of this trip was in a little corporate-type jet, on a clear night across New York State to Albany.  It was smooth and the views were incredible, I got to see many NY State cities on a brilliant night and it was a perfect way to end my trip. My sister Joanne picked me up at the airport.
When I awoke the next morning after getting home, I did not know what country I was in.  After a week I still have not got my sleeping patterns right yet. I got to see all my grandkids while I was in New York, but I really just wanted to keep travelling and I bought a ticket to Cape Cod and again…another bus.  It took all day, but I enjoyed the ride against Massachusetts
We stopped at many cities on the way to Providence, Rhode Island.  Another bus to Hyannis, then another bus to Wellfleet.  I was happy to see my trailer was still there.  And now I need to clean it up and get comfortable for the summer.  One of the first things I did was to put my Amazon hammock up and ready for a long relaxed summer (I hope).
