As the mercury drops below ZERO throughout the Northeast, I thought this would be a nice time to spark memories of The Cove and the 5:00 Cocktail Hour. Over the last year I started thinking about writing my own songs; songs about my life on Buzzards Bay and people I know and love. Then in August, a very talented young local singer/songwriter named Rebecca Corriea … Continue reading A Prayer For The Cove
In case you haven’t noticed, Susan, Daisy, and I have been back since April 18. As is our usual routine, we walk across the beach to Connett with Daisy in the spring until the NO DOGS ON THE BEACH Statute kicks in. If you made way by the Pee Pond this spring, you know that the little creek was more like a river. In fact, … Continue reading Pee Pond Gone!
As I’ve been out walking Daisy, a number of you have commented on how much you’re enjoying my latest project My Buzzards Bay.
Technically speaking, it’s Lifestyle Travel Blog. Personally, it’s my way of paying it forward to the awesome body of water we’re blessed to live upon.
Probably the most valuable information is the Dock and Dine page. Since I bought the first Boston Whaler in 2000, I have been on a quest to build an arsenal of great spots to take my friends for lunch by boat. Besides fishing, isn’t this why we bought our boats in the first place?
The Dock and Dine page is where you’ll find my favorite hang-outs for lunch. I also do reviews of seaside eateries, gunkholes, and more!
How To Follow My Buzzards Bay?
Around 9:00 AM this morning, I looked out and to my amazement, both Whale Rock and the Jetty were gone! They hadn’t been abducted, but rather, buried by what I have come to learn was the King Tide.
From WCVB in Boston…
The highest high tides of the year, known as the king tide, will arrive around Memorial Day weekend, bringing the threat for minor coastal flooding on several occasions. Continue reading “The King Tide – Eye Candy Alert”
For the first time in recent memory, the roads of Peases Point will be nice and smooth for residents and guests this Memorial Day Weekend.
The equipment showed up over the weekend and the work got into full swing on Tuesday. Continue reading “YIPPEE – Road Repairs completed before Memorial Day!”
Thanks to Roz Pierce for posting this link on Facebook. After a quick search, it appears that our beloved Mattapoisett is also the home of one the most notorious ghost roads in America — who knew?
It’s called Wolf Island Road and it’s on the Northwest edge of town running from Long Plain Road to North Street on the other side of 195.
The story below has a few theories behind the ghost sightings, but here’s one from another cite on the Internet:
THE HANGED MEN OF WOLF’S ISLAND ROAD
The Ellis-Bolles Cemetery is located on Wolf Island Road, a desolate stretch of mostly unpaved road that runs through the backwoods of Mattapoisett. Named after the Ellis and Bolles families who reside in a majority of the graves here, the cemetery is said to be an old Wampanoag burial site that was consecrated as a Christian burial ground in 1872.

We actually left last Thursday and as always, once we got everything ready to close up for the winter, I took Little Miss Daisy for one last walk around the point.
Last year, I reported on some of the new building projects at Point Connett. Although, far more modest (in a good way), I took a few pictures of Pease’s Point’s new projects on this year’s Last Walk. Continue reading “Daisy’s Last Walk 2016”
