Falmouth, Mashpee & Woods Hole, MA, Guide and Information
Your Guide to Falmouth, Mashpee & Woods Hole.
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.)
