Cape Cod

I can't believe I've never been to Cape Cod! What a magnificent place, with all those adorable salt box houses built in the 17th century, the ocean ... and the lobster!
I was able to catch one of the final shows of "The Miser," which had my dear ol' pal from high school days in it, Michael Ernst. He was terrific, and I was even able to attend the final cast party, which is always a treat.
Then Michael took a day off work (bless him!) and he drove me ALL over Cape Cod: from Woods Hole (where he works), up to Provincetown and all the parts in between. We ended the day by stopping and buying six pounds of steamers and a half dozen lobsters (for $9.99 per pound, mind you!). We had a grand meal with Michael, his girlfriend Christine Rathbun (a writer and actress of renown on the Cape), along with her daughter Marnie and her parents. It was a joy to spend so much time with Michael and the clan, and I hope to get back to the Cape soon.
Here's a few shots of Michael and Christine, my best friends in Cape Cod.
