Women On Their Way has reprinted a 2008 article about the Outer Cape in fall, written by Meg Noonen for Endless Vacation. The writing is good, but some of the facts are not. When I spot one mistake, I wonder how many I might be missing. One particular statement I found hilarious was that Mac’s Shack is a former colonial post and beam. The author also misidentifies the part of Truro which Hopper liked to paint. The problem with knowing the Cape so well is that freelance journalists, who live elsewhere, cannot get away with such fluff. Can you spot the errors in the paragraph that mentions Wellfleet, Lay of the Land?
