COW Blogs : Mike Cohen's Blog : Ahh...vacation

Memorial Day weekend arrived in the US, indicating my 4th annual trip to Cape Cod for a much needed vacation. The weather was pleasant, the roads were relatively empty and my brain appreciated the chance to recharge.

I set out this year to take fewer pictures than usual, but make them more interesting as a result, and I left my video camera at home, forcing myself to relax a bit more. I also rented a bike and took some nice rides along the Cape Cod National Seashore.

The lobsters were sweet, and I tried some new recipes in the kitchen, watched some DVDs (Gone Baby Gone - thankfully Ben Affleck is a better director than actor; Revolver - Guy Ritchie has lost his mind, although kudos to the editors) and one theatrical movie (Indy IV - Speilberg did the best he could do with the story and George Lucas' proclivity for over use of green screens - the New Haven scenes were fun). 

Although I took my laptop, to keep up with e-mails regarding the next few weeks' shoots, the cottage's wi-fi failed after two days. I did ride my bike to the town library to check e-mail on two occasions. This is what I enjoy most about vacations in Wellfleet, MA - I can ride a bike or walk into town.

No highways.

Cool ocean breezes.



Apollo 11 had the right idea: Tranquility base here, the Eagle has landed.

Next post, back to work...

Thanks for reading.

I have a passion for my job, which entails training for medical professionals such as surgeons, nurses and administrators, not to mention various industries.

Technology is great, but how you apply your skills is what pays the bills.

Years ago I canceled my Media 100 support contract upon discovering what a treasure trove of helpful advice can be found on the Creative COW website. I am proud to be a part of this fantastic community.

In my blog I talk a little about media production, a lot about travel and workflow, and occasionally about cooking, nature and my four-legged friends.
