Beware of the Monkey Dragon!

Ok, I took a little poetic justice. It really is two topics - Monkey and a Dragon.

 

Beware of the Dragon!  He was quite large - six foot or more long.

 

 

Sock Monkey! - Beware of the Uglydolls that lurk in the shadows!

Love the Ocean and it's images

These images are a tribute to the women and the life they had with the sea and husbands.

Probable Cause

I was so glad the beach and boats finally came up to the top for my trip list - really enjoyed my time on Cape Cod. I am always glad to meet new friends and enjoy old one.  Cape Cod is a combination of boats of Maine and the coast of the Outer Banks. 

This one I title 'Probable Cause corned by Blue and Red.

Cold seagull

This was very early in the morning and the seagull kept working to stay on the steel beam with the cold wind that was blowing.

 

Cape Cod Highland Lighthouse at Sunset

Cape Cod’s oldest lighthouse, locally known as the Highland Light, is officially named "Cape Cod Light" on the NOAA nautical chart for the region.

The Highlands of Truro have been steadily eroding since 1797. When Thoreau visited Highland Light in the 1850's, he wrote in "Cape Cod" about the extensive erosion of the cliffs fronting the lighthouse. In 1990 only 128 feet of the original 500 foot setback remained. In July of 1996, when the Highland Light was only 100 feet away from the edge of the cliff, the lighthouse was moved to its present location. The International Chimney Company of Buffalo, New York lifted the 430 ton lighthouse, and pushed it on steel "I" beams, lubricated with Ivory Soap, 453 feet to a safer location. The $1.54 million dollar cost was shared among the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the United States Coast Guard, the National Park Service, and the Truro Historical Society.
