What's Up this Weekend in Wellfleet?

Above, a photo of Newcomb Hollow Beach, taken yesterday afternoon. It was surprisingly cool at the ocean, but we saw lots of folks playing in the waves.

The Wellfleet Public Library has a brand new site you should check out, where it's easy to find a list of the fine events taking place there this summer.

Here are some more suggestions for the coming week:

July 28, 7:30: Award winning photojournalist Ethan Daniels, author of Under Cape Cod Waters, spends most of his year shooting underwater in exotic locales such as Belize, Palau, and Micronesia. He will speak about his book at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History (and, yes, this event is NOT in Wellfleet but rather Brewster).

July 30, 4 pm: A potluck buffet will be held at the Wellfleet Community Garden.

July 30, 6-8: Left Bank Gallery is holding an opening for Maggie Schmidt, Brian Kiernan, and Jennifer O'Connell.

July 31: Don't miss the 37th Annual Wellfleet Historical Society House Tour.

Aug 2, 7:30: The New Orleans Preservation Hall Jazz Band will perform at the Wellfleet Congregational Church. Buy your tickets here

And, if you have not yet seen the Preservation Hall exhibit of wood carvings by Jonathan Kendall, don't miss the show. Some of the colorful and unique artwork is available through silent auction to benefit Preservation Hall.
