On the Cape

If you happen to be on Cape Cod sometime, visit Scargo Pottery, just off route 6A. That whole stretch of 6A is like a sprawling crafts fair, but Scargo is something special. The little pictures on their web site don't do it justice.

We were on Cape Cod for my birthday. It's a few weeks yet before the tourist season, but the weather was cooperative. Breezy, cool, sunny. Buzz was on his best behavior all day.

First we went to the Cape Cod Potato Chip factory. There's not much there, but you get to see a real factory floor. And eat potato chips. So.

Then we went to a little clock shop on Route 6A. Buzz was entranced. We talked about the clocks for, I don't know, it must have been half an hour. His favorite part was the clocks that had their faces removed so you could see the works.

After that, we went back to the beach, flew kites, climbed around on some rocks, and cooked out. A lovely day. If kites hate you, what you want is a Pocket Parafoil (here's one on eBay). Fun and ridiculously easy.
