Stage Harbor Fish House

This structure is now part of the Chatham Harbor Master. Originally I guess it was part of a fish house. There used to be a large brick building nearby that was a ice house to store fish and then was used to store cranberries. That structure burned down. This small structure is right on a dock and has the tower feature next to it that may have been used to dry nets.

Eight Cousins

Carol Chittenden and her mother, Betty Borg, opened the doors of Eight Cousins on July 1, 1986. Established as a children’s bookstore on Main Street in Falmouth, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. The store quickly became a favorite stop for Falmouth’s children and their parents, and, as word spread, Eight Cousins became a “must-stop” for visitors as well. Between those two heads they shared the love of books, art, and the value of children, but they had exactly zero knowledge of business. This view is when we left Anejo Mexican Restaurant across the street at dusk. The bright yellow glow of the interior lighting was wonderful.

Rose Hips

A sure sign that summer is fading into fall. Rose Hips, are the fruit of the rose plant, that typically is red-to-orange, but ranges from dark purple to black in some species. Rose hips begin to form after successful pollination of flowers in spring or early summer, and ripen in late summer through autumn. These are from Sea Roses in Chatham, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. Rose hips are used for herbal teas, jams, syrup, beverages and some herbal medicines. They can also be eaten raw, like a berry, if care is used to avoid the hairs inside the fruit.
