Gone Fishing

I am sorry to say this will be the last post I will write on my blog Old Cape Cod because I am in the process of moving and will start another blog with a new name very shortly. I will be all moved in my new place by the 1st of July and I will be back with a new post as soon as I am settled in. My wife and I felt it was time to move back closer to our roots and be around family and friends and it will also be more affordable. I know we will miss the Cape after living here 11 years but we have a lot of good memories and will always come back to visit. I am still thinking of what the name of my new blog will be and looking forward to getting it going, in the meantime I will share these photos of some good spots for fishing and also leave you with a link to click at the top of the page. Just click on the Title Gone Fishing and check out another really good restaurant you may want to try named Anthony's Cummaquid. I hope when I begin my next post everyone will enjoy viewing it and I will be back after the 4th of July

The Whale Trail

Today I want to talk about an event that I hope everyone will enjoy. It is the Cape and Islands Whale Trail. It consists of 50 to 100 brightly colored whales 6 ft in length made from fiberglass. They will be skattered all around the Cape Cod area from May to October for everyone to enjoy. The presenting sponsor for the event is The Chatham Creative Arts Center and the educational sponsor is the International Fund For Animal Welfare. The purpose for the event is to celebrate the arts, and honor the area's whaling heritage and raise money for non profit organizations. A map was published providing the location of each whale. In the month of September, all the whales will be auctioned off to benefit charities chosen by the sponsor of each whale. I have set up a link as usual at the top of the post. Just click on the Title The Whale Trail and you can get the actual web page there you will have all the information in detail on the subject.

JFK Memorial

The John F. Kennedy Memorial is one of the most visited sites in the Hyannis area. The grounds are beautiful and very well taken care of. Whether a bus tour, school field trips or just a family outing you can come and enjoy the beach and picnic area and have a good time. I think the memorial is a wonderful tribute for our 35th President and with all the visitors each day it makes it ever better. There is a Korean War Veterans Memorial on the grounds also for everyone to see. I have set up a link as usual at the top of the post just click on the Title JFK Memorial and you can check out a new restaurant that is very good and also affordable on rt.28 in West Yarmouth not far away.
The fountain is in front of the Memorial with the ocean view
This is just a part of what you will see at the JFK Memorial
