I would like to extend my greetings to you by first wishing you a contented Independence Day! I am spending the day of our nation's birth in a little area just south of Boston known as Cape Cod. I know I led you to believe in my last letter that I would be making my way back to California by now, but I was very much taken in by the Cape and found myself continually making excuses to stay just one more day.
I've come to realize how selfish I've become on my excursion around the world. When I first set out on my journey, I felt my purpose was to expose you to the outside world, since you have such a fear of cars and traveling. Somewhere along the way I believe I lost track of that purpose, and I would most like to rectify it. Thusly, since you and The Animator's Wife have such an interest in crochet, I thought you might rather enjoy it if I reported on the crochet aspects of the different destinations I see.
Here in Cape Cod, the popular thing among the ladies seems to be crocheted hats made out of straw. In this sunny beach climate, they are very practical as they shield their faces from the sun's harmful rays, yet are airy enough to keep the ladies' heads cool.
All the Best,
