Your Guide to Falmouth, Mashpee & Woods Hole.
A Sentimental Journey to Falmouth
I embarked upon a special visit to Falmouth, Massachusetts in May, largely to relive some of the good times I experienced there with two very special women in my life: my mother and her best friend, Eleanor, who was like a dear auntie to me. I lost both of them this past year, so I felt the need to “find them” in a different way. I intuitively knew that I’d embrace their spirit in many wondrous ways in a place that was near and dear to all three of us.
Mom and I had visited Eleanor many times in her Cape Cod cottage. Together we went to the beach, enjoyed dining out and did lots of shopping. We also spent plenty of time tucked into her little house reminiscing and delighting in delicious food and drink that we had procured from nearby restaurants and shops. (Yes, it is possible to enjoy a succulent lobster roll as takeout, especially when accompanied with an iced cold gin and tonic on a hot summer’s day.)
As the closest mainland port to Martha’s Vineyard on Cape Cod,
there’s lots of ferry activity from both Falmouth and Woods Hole. Hop on a boat
at either of these locales and start recording lots of memorable sights and
sounds of all the comings and goings at the ports and in the harbor and sound.
Whether you’re on
The Steamship Authority Ferry, The Island Queen or another
vessel, if you’re headed to the Vineyard, you’re guaranteed about thirty-five minutes
of Kodachrome moments on your journey.
