Fun at the Ostridge Farm

We had a lot of fun at the ostridge farm, got to see the birds, got to feed them, even pet them.

Since we rounded this in the night and never saw it, a hike out to the end of the cape to take a look seemed like a good outing. It was.

Soon the wind hits

Same situation, only the other way

UPDATE: The Next Day it's worse

Winds nearly 50! In the Marina!

Clouds so Dense They Look Like Snow

This is just about the most wind we've ever seen, and it doesn't seem to be ending.

Cape Minstrels Parade

On Jan 2nd we went into town to watch the Cape Minstrels celebration, which turned out to be a very slow parade.

Even the kids got bored; after a while this gaggle of girls was collected at my feet, totally ignoring the parade.

We agreed, and went home.
