Logan Kinei Nature Experience | Dune Shack Trail, Provincetown

  It was a grey gloomy day on the Cape but it was one of the only days where it was not going to rain nor the temperatures drop down into the 30’s over the next few days, so I wanted to get out to explore another trail.  I have been exploring the trails on […]

Logan Kinei Nature Experience | Great Island Trail, Wellfleet

  Kait and I set out for a hike with Weston and Avett.  There are definitely plenty of places to hike/walk with dogs on the Outer Cape, but a lot of the National Seashore trails are not pet friendly.  I get it.  The National Park Services is there to protect the land and wildlife.  A […]

Logan Kinei Nature Experience | Woods Walk at Highland Center

  There is a 1 mile loop, but a lot of trail within the woods that can take you random ways.  This was my first time so I basically just got lost.  I knew I wanted to see the ocean, so I figured I’d make my way there somehow.  I did pull up google maps […]

Maternity Leave: A Father/Husband’s Perspective

My wife, Kait, is scheduled to return to work on November 4.  This will be about three and a half months after the birth of our son, Weston.  In the US this is considered a good maternity leave, however, it is not good enough…at all. Kait’s company offers twelve weeks of full pay maternity leave.  […]

What It Is To Be A Father

Do you know that postpartum depression can affect fathers, not just mothers?  It’s true, and luckily it’s becoming more widely known and accepted.  Personally, I don’t care about labeling what someone is feeling or experiencing.  The important part here is that people understand they are not alone and what they are going through is real […]
