Herring Gull
There were many Herring Gulls at the Shoals Marine Laboratory on Appledore Island.
Walking the island was a bit like being a cast member in the 1963 film The Birds.

Wind Surfer
This Wednesday's Good Morning Post features kite surfing at Cape Cod
This was windy morning and this surfer would zip along the ocean going back and forth between Nauset and Coast Guard Beach, a distance of approximately one mile.

I later learned that he is one of the lifeguards at the National Seashore. He went down a few times but quickly recovered.

Geocache
I'm a "Muggle" (a non-cacher), but I was present with folks who knew what they were doing.
This cache was located in  New Ipswich.

As of January of 2014 this coin appeared in the Mississippi Blues Trail

You can read about geocaching and this particular coin here

Twerking
"Twerking" was a runner-up in the Oxford Dictionaries 2013 "Word of the Year". I think this qualifies as a word crime.
