The CG36500 from Disney’s movie, The Finest Hours, Is Back At Rock Harbor In Orleans On Cape Cod


The CG 36500 is back at the dock at Rock Harbor in Orleans for the summer. We had the privilege of being the first ones on it the other day with wonderful stories told by Richard.

The CG 36500 is the original boat from the Disney movie, “The Finest Hours.” It is a true story of the U.S. Coast Guard’s most daring sea rescue and  is based on the book, “The Finest Hours” by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman.

It’s so cool because this daring rescue took place off of Chatham here on Cape Cod. If you haven’t seen the movie, it is well worth it and so educational for the kids!



Beach Cottage In Chatham On Cape Cod


This is such an awesome photograph of this “beach cottage” in Chatham on Cape Cod. It is all closed up for the winter, so it must just be a summer residence.

Pretty impressive, don’t you think?

I took it in color and black and white. Which one do you like better? Two totally different perspectives…


The Oystercatchers Are Back At Morris Island On Cape Cod


When Phil and I headed out a couple of days ago to Morris Island in Chatham, I was hoping to see an Oystercatcher. We had not seen one in about 15 years and they are so beautiful with their long orange beaks which they use to catch and open Oysters!

Looking through our binoculars, we saw 2 Oystercatchers by the water’s edge. They stayed just long enough for us to get  a few good photographs. What a treat! And then they flew away!

I guess we were at the right place at the right moment… wow!
