This is the first weekend in a long time that I haven’t needed snow boots to venture outside, and I think it’s safe enough to pack away my long red winter overcoat for another season. And we’re just under a week away from the vernal equinox and the official first day of spring on March 20. I feel like Anna getting ready to burst out of the gates and go running through the village singing “For the First Time in Forever.” (Yes, I probably have spent a little too much time this winter watching “Frozen.” But last time I checked, that’s not illegal.)

So, what I was saying in my last post about how fall’s a really good time to go hiking, because the heat’s tapering off and the tourist crush is winding down?
A couple of years ago, the family and I went up to Cape Cod (our first time there, believe it or not) in the fall for four days of biking and sightseeing.
It was early on in the fall – late September, early October or thereabouts – so the weather was mild without being too warm. And we crammed in quite a bit – puttering around Wellfleet and Truro, a whale-watching trip out of Provincetown, and a good seafood dinner in Woods Hole for our last night there. And for the biking part of the trip, we did the Shining Sea Bikeway.
