Vacationing in Woods Hole, Cape Cod - Part I

Liz and I have the good fortune to be on vacation as I write this. We are in Woods Hole which is a small village on Cape Cod, MA. The village is built around the MBL (Marine Biological Laboratory) and is full of science-y types and the mega rich who have upwards of a few million dollars for a summer home here.

Liz's family has been on the Cape for generations and own the small house pictured below. It was originally built in the 1800's as a barn for the house across the street. Over the years her family has gotten rid of all of the many properties they owned except this one. The property alone is worth about a million dollars.

Below is our bedroom - it is one of three upstairs where the hay used to be stored and thrown down through the chute for the horses below.

This is the back of one of the MBL buildings that houses research laboratories and many, many tanks with every manner of fish, urchin, ray, and crab.

These are a few of the dingies tied up at the shoreline for the many sailboats moored in Eel Pond.
