Cranberry Bogs Awash In The Glow Of November's Full Frost Moon

We went to Cape Cod this week-end for a mini vacation. We walked the beach at twilight, watched the full frost moon rise over the scarlet cranberry bogs, traveled up and down historic route 6A to visit antique stores and check out the quaint cottages with bittersweet spilling from baskets bedecking the gorgeous primitive wood doors. We stopped to eat at the Scargo Café and had delicious artichoke dip, grilled veggie burgers and pasta salad.
We stopped for ice cream but found all the stands had been boarded up for the season, and the little ice cream shop that has been around for 100 years was under renovation! At least the antique shops did not disappoint! We found an armful of treasures, including milliner’s flowers, a French box filled with antique doll wigs, an Edwardian slip, shiny black millinery feathers, and a Parisian four poster curtain surround with ball fringe. I guess we’ll have to wait until next spring for ice cream cones!
