Half a Dozen Memorable Events, Summer 2009

This weekend the Outer Cape hosts two fun-filled weekends. Wellfleet holds Boogey by the Bay and Truro, Truro Treasures. Since summer is drawing to a close, today seems a good time to think over some of the memorable events of Summer, 2009:

1.) Guests returned from Cahoon Hollow Beach ecstatic: two humpback whales swam right past the beach at high tide, a most unusual occurrence.
2.) One of our guests, a consultant from the UK, who has lived and worked in New York for over a year, was arrested in Truro because he was driving without a valid international permit on a Saturday night. The cops handcuffed him on the spot and took him to jail. He had to go to court on Monday in Orleans and paid a fine of $100, a holiday he will no doubt remember!
3.) The month of June was the sixth coldest June on record for Cape Cod.
4.) White sharks are sighted off Chatham.
5.) Truro holds first annual Agfair, and it’s a rousing success.
6.) Concerned citizens in Outer Cape towns unite against NStar’s plan to spray up to five herbicides beneath the power lines.
