Fog Ride Today with pics

Very foggy, but in the 50's with very little wind on the Cape this morning...........22 miles in the fog, nice ride and some decent pics after the Nor'easter we had for the last couple of days.......now for some home made apple pie and vanilla ice cream.

How's the fishing been this Fall? If I lived out on the Cape that's all I would do, especially once the summer crowds left.

Fishing was good right through October, lots of stripers and blues. They had an unusually good tuna season as well.

Cool, I'll be fishing next week at Cape Hatteras. Any size to the blues? It's been a while since I've seen the really big choppers.

Hey Tim:

Brandon and I are planning our summer tour. The Cape and Vinyard are on our short list. We figure 6-7 days. We are also looking at the Erie Canal again. Thats a really good tour. The Natchez Trace was squashed by both of us after seperate research.

How many bridges cross the Cape Cod Canal ?

Nice pics. Those cottages down at P-Town? I haven't been there since the early 80's, but they look familiar.


Psst... Dennisport. "Snatch Alley". For those not familiar with this, I will gladly fill you in. Although it has been many moons....
