Sorry for the lack of posts. Pete and I were up in Connecticut and Cape Cod, Massachusetts for a much-needed vacation. We went whale watching in Provincetown, MA (thanks Ellen!), and saw several humpback whales and minke whales. One that only I saw looked like it was out of a Pacific Life commercial, with the humpback whale coming straight out of the water, dropping back down with a huge splash.
The first day at the Cape Cod National Seashore, a storm rolled in, providing us with some amazing photos.
The East Coast was quite a contrast to Ohio as those states haven’t had a drought like we are experiencing. Everything was very verdant and lush there.
But back to our upcoming Pawpaw Festival! Pawpaws are a native tree that produces Ohio’s only temperate tropical fruit. NPR had a story on the tree along with a great video. (Sorry, but I couldn’t embed the video into this blog for love nor money!) I’ve had the fruit raw as well as made into jam as it’s quite popular in Florida. It’s very tasty!
