Sharks are common off of Chatham, but Duxbury?
For more than four decades, late summer in Falmouth has been defined by the Falmouth Road Race. The 7.1-mile journey, which originated as the fanciful brain child of local legend Tommy Leonard as a bar sprint from the Captain Kidd in Woods Hole to the Casino in Falmouth Heights, has become an amalgam of superlatives—it is one of the world’s best athletic events, one of road racing's top fundraising occasions, and one of the most inspirational undertakings around.
Economic issues are cited as the reason developers pulled out of a venture to bring a pirate museum to Hyannis, the town loses its appeal to take back a popular town way to water, plus we have details about upcoming events to celebrate Barnstable’s 375th Anniversary.
Complaints of burns at a local tanning salon leads to new regulations, summer is winding down we have all the information on what beaches will remain staffed and which won’t, and a new shellfish area is opening in town next week.

India is the birthplace of eggplant. But seldom do we see Indian varieties. In fact, many people assume that eggplant, which is actually a fruit not a vegetable, comes from the English who originally thought of eggplant as having an ornamental virtue rather than a culinary one. Its beauty is not to be under estimated but the numbers of ways eggplant can be prepared to eat are virtually endless especially during the summer months. And the more I explore this lovely fruit the more I appreciate the multicultural possibilities.
An Update On Buses And Trains

Cool evenings and warm sunny days, work all day and take a lazy afternoon to relax at the beach, now this is what I call Cape Cod living. I don't live in the high rent district, I have neighbors that know each other, (ok we know each others pooches names better than the owners names but still.) Family coming to visit, and even as much as you love them you are also happy to see them go home.
This is much like a true version of the "Eskimoes-have-200-words-for-snow" myth. Bourne residents are fully aware of at least 200 different styles of traffic, maybe more... I'm a washashore, and I learn a new one every day.
Why, just in the last few dozen months, I have been stuck in:
- Morning commute traffic
- Afternoon drive traffic
