Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #289

As I returned to the Cape today after a full day of tying up loose holiday strings, I was drawn to drive the long way home past Cape Elementary. I had been hearing reports all day about the awful events in Connecticut and felt the need to lay eyes on our neighborhood school - to reassure myself that all was as it should be, peaceful and calm. Thankfully it was, with a sprinkling of kids, parents, and teachers coming and going like normal at the end of a busy pre-holiday week.

May we never know the kind of horror experienced by that New England community today. Our hearts are broken for them - for us all.

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #287

These Cheseapeake outdoorsmen couldn't decide whether to go duck hunting or fishing. Looks like they covered all the bases and brought the hunting blind along behind the bay boat. We certainly don't want for outdoor activities on the Chesapeake. The only trouble is deciding which one. Or if you're these guys, figuring out a way to do it all.

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #285

We saw a lot of great boats at the Lights Parade this weekend, but the crowd favorite was this rockin' vessel.  It was not the most elaborately decorated, but the crew was swinging, and the guy singing was dynamite. It made me want to be at that party. Nice job to all the boats who entered. What a fun event!

Cape Photo of the Day - Photo #284

A Battle of the Beltway for the ages. Even though the Redskins came out on top, it was a great afternoon for all. I encountered just as many Ravens as Redskins pumped after the game saying, "We should play this game EVERY year." Both sides commented on what a terrific, amicable rivalry it was. This is one happy Redskins household, but I am even happier to have witnessed a hard fought, well played, respectful game between rivals. It proved there is plenty of spirit to go around for two well loved local teams.
