Wellfleet Fills Up for President's Day Weekend

The end of January brought our first guests of 2009, hardy souls who loved to explore the sea coast and were out most of the time, despite the cold weather. We are fortunate to also have guests for Valentine’s Day, a family in the cottage, and for our Green Room, a couple of sweethearts, both literally and figuratively. They reported that the Wicked Oyster was full Saturday night. Not phased one bit, off they went to spend the evening in Provincetown where things were hopping, especially at Jimmy’s Hideaway. Last night they reserved the Wicked Oyster and reported meeting people who told them The Bookstore had so many requests for dinner that they ran out of food, which must be a most unusual occurrence! Since our little town only has three restaurants open in winter, they were all packed. Lots of families are here for the school vacation. I bet they all went down to explore the harbor where it’s fun to watch fishing boats or clever seagulls, dropping clams onto the blacktop of the Mayo Beach parking lot. Unfortunately, the ice melted over the past few days. How amazing the view was last week!
