Cape Cod.

The wild super red cuipeua discus, in my mind, reminds me of the trips I’ve taken to the arm-like land protuberance extending like a he-man flexing his biceps off Massachusetts’ southeastern corner.

Traveling to the Cape years ago we rented a cottage in North Eastham from a Russian woman named Elka. Her cottages were within walking distance from some nice beaches.

We watched the sunset and the sunrise on the Cape and each experience looked like this Wild Super Red. The brilliant reds, oranges, pinks, and yellows of our suns melted away like pastels in a frying pan.

Witnessing the sunset from First Encounter Beach, we tried to understand this Beach’s place in history. It was here, at this beach, that the Pilgrims first encountered the Native Americans on the North American continent. Talk about culture shock! Sitting in our beach chairs, sinking in the low tide’s sands, we gazed upon the colors with awe, understanding there was a historical aspect to our thoughts.

The sunrise was a romantic outing with my lover where we raced to get there, and just pulling into our parking spot near the ocean, we saw the pink orb peaking through, like a cute mouse from under its hidden home. We hugged and kissed, and like Jesus, felt like we could walk on the water!

On top of the red brilliance of the setting and rising suns we enjoyed the red brilliance of lobsters. Cooked on an open fire, cracked and dipped into drawn butter with a splash of lemon……mhmmmmmm….there’s nothing better!

Wild Super Red Cuipeua I summon thee for more Cape Cod memories…

There was that time we saw a seal swimming in the ocean and we took a video of it from one of our phones. With the recent proliferation of seals on the Cape the seals’ predator–the shark–has also reappeared. Signs warning swimmers and boaters about sharks appear on fenceposts near most of the beaches here. It would be in all of our best interests to pay heed to these warnings.

But it’s all good. Sharks are a necessary part of the great mix of animals and plants that need each other in the world’s great oceans. It’s called balance and nature’s balance can and is being upset by man’s doings. That’s a whole other discussion, but suffice it to say you can do your share to keep this balance by respecting all beaches you happen to be visiting.

And we all benefit from our ocean’s bounty. Besides the lobsters, we enjoyed pan seared diver scallops, fresh oysters on the half shell splashed with hot sauce, and sashimi style blue fin tuna dipped in soy and wasabi.

So thanks Wild Super Red Cuipeua because you know what? When things don’t seem to be going our way, memories are all we have.
