First off, this has been a wonderful winter! Snow that modestly covers the ground with less than an inch and doesn’t overstay its welcome. That’s winter on Cape Cod the way I like it. Admittedly, things are pretty quiet here in sleepy old Harwich Port. Most of the snowbirds left us right after the new […]
The temperatures certainly don’t betray the season. It seems winter has come early to Harwich Port. If there is an upside to cold weather it is the phenomenon of spontaneous hugging as friends reacquaint upon entering the store. Good to see familiar summer faces! Happy to shake off the early chill.

October Wine Sale & Mix-a-Six Pack of Craft Beer
With the fourth of July weekend (week?) here, summer time on Cape Cod is in full swing. The roads are jammed, the air is hazy, hot and humid and everybody is sporting a suntan or worse.
