Last weekend we went to two great harvest festivals. The first on Saturday was at the Bourne Farm in Falmouth. It was a beautiful, crisp fall day and really well attended. There were many activities for the kids (bouncy house, craft table, face painting, tractor rides and horse wagon rides. Also food and you could pick your own pumpkin. We all had a wonderful time with the grandkids. pumpkin patch hay wagon rides food tents The next day we went to the Wareham Cranberry Festival.
It was overcast and started to rain while we were there. However the weather didn’t put a damper on the activities. This was another great fair with many activities for the kids, arts and crafts, cranberry food tents, food wagons, train ride, pony rides and you could take a bus and explore a cranberry bog. Last year my son and husband took a helicopter ride over the fair – what a great experience.

A great bargain at one in Marston Mills – you could fill a bag with treasures for only $10. P. found a beautiful wedgewood vase and a cute Halloween picture. Advertisements We have spent quite a bit of time lately on some of the bike trails on the Cape.
Here is some information from the Chamber of Commerce. Cape Cod Canal Bike PathsDownload a Trail Map (14.2 miles paved, off-road trail; access the paths in Sagamore): These paths run along both sides of the man-made Cape Cod Canal. Featuring a wide road with minimal grades, it is ideal for beginner to casual cyclists, especially families with younger children. Following the length of the Canal roughly 7½ miles between the Bourne and Sagamore Bridges, the bikeway itself is smooth concrete, with a well-defined single yellow line painted down the center designating two-way traffic.
Enjoy beautiful sea breezes and watch the neverending ship and boat traffic through the Canal. There are ample spots to stop and take in the beautiful scenery. On the off-Cape side, pedal from Buzzards Bay to Scusset Beach (about seven miles). Or, start at the Herring Run on Route 6 or at any parking lot from the Sagamore Rotary. Cape-side, pedal from Sandwich to Bourne, about 6.8 miles, or start at the U.
S. Engineering Observation Station, Sandwich or from Pleasant Street, Sagamore. Shining Sea BikewayDownload a Trail Map (10.7 miles of paved, off-road trails; access the Trail from various points in Falmouth): This beautiful path runs along some of the most beautiful scenery on Cape Cod, from North Falmouth village all the way to the avant garde village of Woods Hole, home to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Marine Biological Laboratory and many other institutions.
It follows the original route of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad that used to run from Buzzards Bay, through North and West Falmouth, around Woods Hole and into Falmouth Station. The spectacular views offered from the freshly minted section of Shining Sea Bikeway are right out of the Katherine Lee Bates song “America the Beautiful,” from which the path gets its name. The route avoids much of Falmouth’s notorious summer traffic by winding down along the beach, past cranberry bogs and harbors, and through marshes and the Salt Pond Bird Sanctuary.
This is a frequently used area in-season, so be sure to respect the rights of others, especially inline skaters and runners. Some photos of the changing vegetation along the Shining Sea Bike Trail. Bittersweet just starting to change color. This is Missy on her third walk on the Shining Sea Trail. She is getting much more used to the other dogs and bikes on the trail.
The Newcomers Club of Falmouth has many wonderful activities. This week we started attending the Wed. walking group and we walked and enjoyed the scenery along Great Bay. It is about one mile in distance from the ocean at the end of Maravista up to the Randolph st. boat landing. A terrific walk with wonderful views of Great Bay. You can tell that Fall is here by the number of boats already taken out of the water.
Another fun group to join is the Falmouth Garden Club, held the first Mon. every month. This month for our presentation we had Gil Newton who spoke all about “Seaweeds of Cape Cod Shores” it was really interesting to learn about the different types and their uses. Also they are great to use in the garden. The next mtg. will be on Nov.6 at 10AM. Some activities coming up will be the Greens Sales (flower arrangements for the Holidays) and decorating the Wick’s House for the Holidays.
The three flower arrangements for the meeting were by Judy, Carol and Pat. Some examples of how creative our members are! We have really enjoyed the Shining Sea Bike Trail this year. My favorite section is from Falmouth Depot st parking down to Woods Hole. This section is very scenic the entire ride. There are properties and gardens, wooden bridges and of course the ocean vistas and beaches.
Along the way across from the ocean in the marshes we saw wild holyhocks. Beautiful but you have to be there at the right time because the next time we went they had already gone by. close up This is Missy and her first walk along the Shining Sea Trail. Another walk that is very scenic is along Great Bay Road in East Falmouth. These were early morning shots on a beautiful crisp, quiet morning in September.
The next time we took the Shining Sea Trail we saw wonderful sections of it covered in this fall blooming clematis. Seemed to be growing wild along the edge of the trail. We also have seen these cairns seem to multiply all summer long. Each one is so unique! Fall window boxes Many wonderful fairs and festivals on the Cape and in New England The Big E festival in Springfield Ma.
Worth the trip! The Monarch butterflies are certainly out and enjoying the butterfly bushes and fall blooming Montauk daisies. And of course the swans are still enjoying this great sunny weather! Went to a great estate sale in Chatham overlooking Pleasant Bay. This was a beautiful spot next to the golf course and overlooking the bay. Then found this great book on houses and gardens of Cape Cod at an estate sale in Mashpee.
Some photos of flowers from my gardens. We visited two estate sales this weekend. The first sale was in Osterville on a beautiful piece of property and a spectacular house. It was worth the visit just to see this gem of a house. They had many great items but we only purchased a small pot and plant. Falmouth Garden Club was held this week. These were some of the arrangements on the food tables.
We had Tony Todesco as our guest flower designer. He has presented at the Museum of Fine Arts and numerous other museums.Everyone really enjoyed his presentation and great sense of humor. Along the Shining Sea bike path. We have been riding our bikes to Woods Hole and north to Rt. 151 at least twice a week. The path is terrific, scenery spectacular and everyone we meet is so friendly.
We also went to the Cotuit Library Fine Arts Festival. We purchased a Cape Cod themed plant hanger as a gift. It was really well attended. Another festival we attended recently was the Harwich Cranberry Festival, held Sept 16th and 17th. Many fine crafts, great food and music. Then the Falmouth Garden Club held a flower arranging class on Sept.19th, given by Hila Lyman. This was on traditional Mass Design Arrangements.
There were quite a few participants and we all really learned a lot abut designs and had a lot of fun. We have been having a great summer with a lot of different activities. Went to the Barnstable County Fair twice. The first time we went with the grandchildren and bought the bracelet for unlimited rides. What a great buy for little children. We went on the inflatable slide at least 25 times and then the carousel, train, bumblebee, etc.
It was a great afternoon and evening. Even saw a dog and acobatic show in the pool. Also visited the animals, honey bee house and food and game area. Then the adults went back another evening and got to explore the exhibits, animals, lovely garden and listened to the show of Blood Sweat and Tears. They were terrific and everyone seemed to be having a great time. We just need to remember to bring our own lawn chairs next year.
Then I volunteered to be runner at the flower show at the Heritage Museum in Sandwich. It was really ineresting to be behind the scenes to see how it is set up, the judging, etc. What a lot of work that goes into a production like this. I’m happy to say that many of the Falmouth Garden Club members entered and won many ribbons for their flower exhibits and displays. Then the Garden club had a meeting where we put together “picks” (holiday decorations) to be inserted in our Holiday Greens Sales displays.
These will go on sale in Dec. at the Gus Canty Center. I went last year and it is a great fundraiser for the garden club and the centerpieces were just extrodinary. The money earned goes towards scholarships to Falmouth students in the spring who will be studying horticulture or agriculture in college. Then the Garden Club had another meeting and this was in anticipation of the Bake Sale on August 26th at the Congregational Church on Main Street.
We will be having a lot of baked goods (pies, cakes and cookies) and there will also be other displays and items for sale. There are many kid’s activities going on in Falmouth this summer. There are swimming lessons at Goodwill Park and many of the beaches every morning. Also baseball camp was offered this summer through the Rec. Dept. We also went to 2 lectures at Waquoit Bay. One was on the history of the buildings and grounds and the other was all about the two osprey nests (one on the roof of the house and the other in a tree.
Fascinating information both times. Also what a lovely spot to just sit in one of their comfortable outdoor chairs and admire the views of the bay. There are also hiking trails and you are able to access the water and beach. We have also spent many wonderful mornings on the Shining Sea bike path. We have completed the whole trail, about 11 miles from Rt. 151 to Woods Hole. There are many places to park along the route and also places to stop.
Usually our favorite in Woods Hole are the Market and also Pie in the Sky. If you go north from Depot st parking towards Rt. 151 you also have Seafood Sams, West Falmouth Cafe and Ice cream shops. There are also many scenic spots to just sit and admire the views. The trail has been very busy this summer, but everyone seems to be having a great time and very courteous. The hydrangeas have just been spectacular this summer all over the Cape! Highfield Hall Highfield has also been a wonderful place to visit this summer.
They have the quilt exhibit, beautiful gardens and the Fairy Houses. We really enjoy going there. Also this Sunday they had a Bluegrass Festival on the lawn. The music was terrific and it was really packed with many music lovers. We also went to see Chicago this week at the Melody Tent. They were terrific and performed to a sold out audience. Will be going back next year they were so good! The Falmouth Library has also had a lot to offer this summer.
I have gone to two book author talks and they have both been really interesting and well attended. The first was B.A. Shapiro who wrote the “Art Forger” and also “The Muralist”. She told about her journey to become an author and also how she goes about writing a historical fiction novel. If she is back next year would be worth the time to listen to her. The next author was Anthony Amore who wrote “Stealing Rembrandts”.
He is in charge of security at the Gardner Museum and spoke about the types of art work stolen and recovered. Still working on getting back the works taken from the museum. He is also on my list again for next year. Both of these authors were very personable, extremely informative and interesting. Also the library had a great fair with music and a book sale earlier in the summer. A little family of geese on Little Pond.
This week we went to one estate sale in Falmouth. This sale was a demolition sale of a house on Green Pond. They were selling the contents of the home and also parts of the building (doors, windows, landscaping etc.) Some good finds if you were interested in these items. They had a really good turnout and and even an officier directing traffic. Not too many other sales down in our area of the Cape.
Last week and this week we have attended a few estate sales in the area. One in Centerville had great items for printing, photography, and many electronics. Also had a great view of the marsh. Our only purchases were a glass serving dish and some CDs. Another sale was on the waterfront in Waquoit. What a beautiful setting with the water and lovely gardens. Didn’t find any treasures to purchase, but certainly worth the trip for the lovely views.
There really haven’t been that many sales this summer on the upper cape so far. Looking forward to what next weekend brings. There were quite a few estate sales this weekend. A sale in New Seabury, Mashpee on Friday was held in a lovely home with views of the ocean. I arrived at 9:15 AM, it opened at 9 and was completely packed. They had many unique items and it was worth the trip just to see the setting.
I didn’t purchase anything but many other people found treasures for themselves and others. This is our new little family on the pond. Mom and Dad and little baby geese. The parents are so protective of their little ones. It finally feels like spring is here for good. What a beautiful weekend. Also we had many choices for estate sales this weekend. Some started Fri, others on Saturday and Sunday.
We attended six on Saturday, three were in Falmouth. Great properties and many unusual or useful items. My husband found a few CDs and a basket he is going to reconfigure as a bike basket. Also he found a squirrel nutcracker which he thought was unique. Then we went to two in Mashpee – finding a box of eight kid’s puzzles having to do with the movie Frozen for our grandchildren at one of them and then finally to Centerville where the house was located on a lovely pond.
It was exciting to see that there were many more estate sales listed in the papers this week. Another sure sign that spring has sprung! Enjoy the week! This week we went to two great estate sales. Spring has certainly arrived on Cape Cod. The trees are in blossom, daffodils galore, and perennials are growing so quickly! Our finds at the estate sales in Falmouth and Osterville also had garden themes.
I found a terrific gardening manual that I have already used. I learned all about drip irrigation and then it was terrific to show others what their flowers would look like this summer when they bloom. Also I found three metal trellises that are great for my hanging vines. Already up and in use.
