Provincetown Calendar of Events: What, When, Where A picture is worth a thousand words...
Last this spring I heard through the townie grapevine
that there was an old burn dump where the bulldozers were digging up the new
leeching field. As soon as the machines stopped rumbling I wandered over to
search through the rubble. There were a few other people poking through the
dirt and rust, some had already gathered a cache of treasures. Eventually
we started to circle in the same area and admire each others finds. As I showed
two women the little porcelain pig Id pried from under a stump, we began
talking about how we love to dump pick and beach comb. Our conversation drifted
into our favorite wildlife sightings on hikes around Provincetown. One women
knew where a fox den was, the other had seen an otter in Clapps Pond,
we leapt excitedly from one nature tale to the other and laughed at our mutual
passion for long walks observing the beauty that surrounds us. We shared stories
on how to see a Great Horned Owl and where other old bottle dumps were. It
became one of those Provincetown moments three strangers
looking for treasures in old trash and finding new friends.
