Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

Cape Cod is open for the season and it’s been a hodge-podge of a day on this holiday weekend.

Time Change Changed Me

Both yesterday and today I was up and out of bed at 5 am due to the time change. This is not so unusual. It's happens to a lot of us, but today, for me, it was as if someone flipped a switch when they pushed that daylight savings time button. I started in on . . . → Read More: Time Change Changed Me

Weekend Guests

Each weekend this summer has brought guests to visit. I love this because it seems once the school year starts and winter sets in, we don't get to see many people.
