cape cod: Cape Cod Snow Storm January 2012 - 01/21/12 03:13 PM
Well, we have been spared until now. Today we showed a few homes but the conditions were less than ideal. The picture below is of the Bourne Bridge headed south over to Cape Cod. I was on the way back to Falmouth from Sagamore Beach. This picture was taken at around 12:30 and the weather has continued to go down hill from that point. Many drivers were going very slow, because the sand trucks and plows hadn't treated very many of the road ways. no, from my Main Street Office in Falmouth, the plows are occasionally going by, but it seems (1 comments)

cape cod: Want To Eat Lobster? - 04/17/11 02:10 PM
This week we had a great seafood dinner. The kids were all away, we were in the mood for some good seafood, and we live on the ocean. It all added up to a nice evening with great eats. While I was picking up the victuals for our romantic feast, I noticed that Falmouth Fish, http://www.falmouthfish.com , will ship live lobsters to your home address if you aren't as close to their Falmouth MA location as I am. They have overnight shipping for orders from "2 to 100, and anything in between." If you're lookin fer some lobster, matey, try Falmouth (3 comments)

There are grants available to Green Community towns across the US. Falmouth MA is making a concentrated effort to be at the top of the list, and a leader.

The Lawrence school is on Lakeview Ave and is the 7th and 8th grade middle school. The meeting will be in the auditorium. There will also be a discussion of "Stretch Energy" at Town Meeting.

cape cod: Coast Guard Practices Rescues Off Falmouth MA Coast - 02/23/11 05:45 PM
It was around 40 degrees today and the Coast Guard was practicing rescues off the coast of Falmouth MA on Cape Cod. This helicpoter and the rescue teams repeated their routine over and over in the cold waters. The sun was out, but I'm sure they were cold. I put my Droid camera lense up to the eyelet of a pair of binoculars I had and took this video. It is a little shaky, but clear enough to see one completed rescue. The waster was calm, the sun was out, and in general, a good day to practice.
cape cod: A Rainbow In Falmouth - 11/09/10 02:25 PM
Last week a storm whipped through Falmouth briefly. I took this picture of a double rainbow that formed outside my office. It changed in brightness and clarity over the few minutes it was visible. I've seen double rainbows before, but this one was the brightest I've ever seen, double or otherwise. The rest of that week was very pleasant. This week we have had rain to help all the leaves fall, and to let all the trees get their thirst quenched before the cold months arrive. It is still a beautiful day on Cape Cod!
cape cod: Its A Beautiful Day On Cape Cod! - 10/23/10 12:21 PM
Its A Beautiful Day On Cape Cod! The picture below was taken behind my house. It is the view we get to appreciate here on Cape Cod. Sometimes there are as many as 50 swans hanging out there. Today, there were swans and ducks. There is also a Ospreys and Hawks that hunt this area. With the colors changing and the air cooling, the Cape is a great place to enjoy fall. Come on down to Cape Cod. We have open houses all weekend, and Its A Beautiful Day On Cape Cod!
cape cod: Nor-easter? Not on the Cape! Come On Down! - 10/15/10 02:27 PM
Well, the rumors that Cape Cod has blown away have been greatly exaggerated. Yes the winds came. But it is more like a "Winnie the Pooh" blustery day than a storm. The picture below shows a Falmouth beach earlier today, before the sun was completely out. I like living in a resort! I like the idea that we are remote enough for the weather men/women to mis-predict the weather. So, check here to see a pic every now and then. It is a beautiful day on Cape Cod!

cape cod: Earl Shmerl! It is a Beautiful Day on Cape Cod! - 09/04/10 11:20 AM
Earl Shmerl! Last night was no more than a tropical rain event here on Cape Cod. This morning is one of the most beautiful days I have ever seen here in Falmouth! If you are thinking about heading toward Cape Cod, the picture below was taken on my way in to the office. This road is one of the ones that is usually washed over in a heavy storm. There isn't even any sand on the pavement this morning. I guess I'll have to go walk on the beach later for those of you stuck inland.

cape cod: Creative! Amazing! Unique! Cedar Shingle Artistry - Wow! - 08/21/10 11:41 AM
I just received my copy of the Cape Cod View magazine. Inside is an article that has pictures of some amazing artistry with cedar shingles. These are normal cedar shakes that are used all over the Cape as siding on houses. And in these cases, the artists are home siding specialists! In the article titled "Great Shakes: Cedar shingling brings art to home exteriors", there are examples of cedar shingles which have been trimmed, shaped, and layered into a unique and creative new form of art! There are fish (including scales), hearts, flowers, diamonds, sailboats, and even a sea turtle! The (1 comments)

cape cod: Its A Beautiful Day On Cape Cod in Falmouth MA! - 07/24/10 10:07 AM
The reports of rain on Cape Cod are once again creating an opportunity! If you are wondering WEATHER or not you should let the CLOUDY reports of anti-BEACH sky DAMPen your travel plans - wonder no longer! There are a few gray areas still, but the SUN is starting to dominate! It is interesting how often the forecasters in Boston and Providence, the area tv stations, get the weather on this side of the bridges, wrong. We often have bright sunny days when there are storms just across The Canal. If you are wondering if you should wander down, wonder no longer! Falmouth (1 comments)

cape cod: Falmouth Artists Guild Raises Funds For An Elevator - 07/17/10 01:20 PM
On Thursday evening my wife and I attended the Falmouth Artists Guild fundraiser. We were there with other agents and friends from Robert Paul Properties. There was good food, dancing, music was provided by Four Guys In Tuxes, and there was a lot of art and goodies to bid on at the auction. We had a very nice evening. One of the activities was an open call for donations toward the installation of an elevator at the new Falmouth Artists Guildbuilding on Gifford and Dillingham.
