editor’s note

E

arlier this summer, I was fortunate enough to attend a talk sponsored by National Geographic at Wequassett Resort & Golf Club. The featured speaker was Brian Skerry, award-winning photographer and author of the book “Shark,” which features 250 photographs of sharks around the world, including a few great white sharks right here in Chatham. The event helped raise money for the local nonprofit organization Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. I was enlightened by Skerry’s lecture on the importance of protecting sharks and I gained a new appreciation for the species often depicted as a villain. Read more about his book in the Last Word. Every week I struggle with what to serve my family for dinner. I am always looking for fresh ideas. The feature story by Kelly Chase, “Fresh Off the Vineyard,” profiles two cookbook authors and provides some answers. Sarah Waldman, author of “Feeding a Family: A Real-Life Plan for Making Dinner Work,” has tips for picky eaters and for involving the whole family in meal prep.

Suppers,” suggests making items ahead of time, such as sauces and dressings, to plan for the busy work week. Continuing with the Martha’s Vineyard theme, fellow editor Janice Randall Rohlf takes readers on a journey through the charming streets of Edgartown in the story, “Girls’ Getaway,” which offers suggestions on where to shop, eat and take in the sights. All of this Vineyard talk makes me want to hop on the next ferry! Finally, I know you’ll enjoy the black-and white photos and stories behind seven antique buildings and houses in “If These Walls Could Talk,” as well as portraits of 12 local Cape Codders photographed for the book, “I Am of Cape Cod.” Overall, the book captures 139 individuals, from sports figures and artists to educators and entrepreneurs. You will likely recognize a few faces and meet some new ones.

NEWS AND NOTES FROM AROUND THE CAPE

The mother-daughter duo Kirsten and Kathy Meyer, owners of The Grey House in Harwich Port, sell a popular line of stylish rugs from Sweden called Pappelina.

MAR INA DAVALOS

Rugs All the Rage California beach chic meets European contemporary style at The Grey House in Harwich Port. Owner Kirsten Meyer, an interior designer in London, was born and raised in San Diego and spent summers on the Cape. Her mother and business partner, Kathy Meyer, has more than 30 years of retail experience. When Kathy moved to the Cape in 2016, the duo decided to pursue their dream of opening a boutique together. The Grey House opened in June of 2016 and offers unique furnishings and décor, including a line of rugs called Pappelina, crafted in the small town of Leksand, Sweden. “We saw these rugs at a trade show in New York, and we said if we ever open a shop, this is the kind of thing we want to sell,” says Kirsten. The rugs are reversible, durable and stylish, featuring contemporary patterns such as circles and stars, or more traditional trellis-style designs. “They’re contemporary,” says Kirsten, “but they’re Cape Cod.” —Marina Davalos The Grey House, 586 Route 28, Harwich Port, 774-237-0052 capecodmagazine.com

ove a little mystery in your life? Then you’ll enjoy Riddle, the first escape room on Cape Cod, which opened its doors this spring. The live-action adventure game features six rooms with different themes—“Swirly Twirly Gumdrops,” “Nosferatu: A Vampire Revenge,” “Game of Pirates,” “Like Totally the ’80s to the Max!” “1920s Paris: A Moveable Mystery” and “Mission: Homeland.” Ashley Carr and Nicole Merriman, the co-owners of Hot Diggity at Mashpee Commons, came up with the idea one night after an annual trade show. The entire crew was bored and decided to try an escape room for themselves. “We actually exited the building and sat in the parking lot and came up with a quick business plan right on the spot,” says Carr. Here’s how it works: You are allotted 60 minutes to complete the mission where participants are given unique clues to solve puzzles and riddles. The game masters will help guide you to make sure you are having a “fun, positive experience.” The main goal? To encourage people to “put down their elecSEPTEMBER 2017

he beautiful landscape of beach grass swaying in the breeze at Truro’s Ryder Beach is overshadowed by two miniature horses trotting along the coastline. Truro residents Karen Tosh and her husband, Tracey Maclin, started Auction Rescues, Inc., a 501(c) organization, in 2015 after learning about the cruel treatment of miniature horses and

ponies at livestock auctions. The couple first rescued Folly several years ago after following the pony at an auction site. Folly’s journey began at a livestock auction in Kentucky when buyers from a stable in Cranbury, N.J., purchased him and offered him at their weekly auction. Horses that are not purchased by individuals, or saved by rescue groups, find themselves in the “kill pen.”

Truro resident Karen Tosh, along with her husband, Tracey Maclin, started Auction Rescues Inc. in 2015 to help rescue miniature horses and ponies from kill buyers at horse auctions. At left, Tosh and Snickers, one of four miniatures she has rescued, are pictured in front of Edward Hopper's house. Above, Folly and Snickers enjoy trotting along the coastline in Truro and Snickers, right, hangs out at the stables.

At first, Folly was painfully skittish. He couldn’t be touched without extreme emotional duress and severe fright. With the assistance and generous help from a veterinarian, Dr. Sadie Hutchings of Herring Cove Veterinary Hospital in Provincetown, this frightened rescue was transformed into a trainable, friendly and reliable trail pony who loves to follow other horses. Folly now loves the beach and enjoys going into the water up to his chest. After watching this major transformation, Tosh and Maclin made the decision to rescue one pony or miniature horse a year capecodmagazine.com

from auctions across the country. They have happily rescued four ponies and miniature horses over the past several years. Folly, Snickers, Martino and Einstein have become an integral part of their family in South Truro. With the help of donations and much of their own funding, they are able to provide proper accommodations. All donations go to purchasing miniatures at auction, quarantine, veterinary care and food.

shop}talk! Chatting with Cheryl Smith

Owner of Atlantic Dry Goods PHOTOGRAPHY BY MEGHAN NANAN Just a short walk from Main Street in downtown Falmouth, nestled next to Coffee Obsession, lies this unique store filled with vintage goods and one-of-a-kind treasures. Owner Cheryl Smith handpicks each of the items and even hand paints some of the furniture herself. Visit this store more than once, and you are likely to find new pieces each time. When did Atlantic Dry Goods open? March 4, 2017. What occupied that space before you opened your store? Cape Chic,

a woman’s clothing store. They have since moved to Main Street. What do you look for when choosing merchandise? Vintage, handcrafted and unique American-made items. What do you love most about your job? What’s not to love! I work in a wonderful community with lovely customers and I have a “woman cave” where I paint and dream. What were you doing before you opened Atlantic Dry Goods? I was a design consultant for luxury custom home builders and developers. I still work in the field on occasion. I am currently midway through a project in Middleton. What are your favorite items at the store? I love the jewelry. I plan on expanding that department in the near future.

Memories of Firefighting in Cotuit

T

he Cotuit Fire District can be traced back to the 1800s, with records cataloging firefighting in 1886. In 1916, the first motorized fire engine on Cape Cod was brought to Cotuit—a 1916 Ford Model T American LaFrance fire engine. The engine had a motorized chemical pumper by which firefighters would pump in water from nearby ponds (the chemicals in the tanks helped pressurize the water). Benny Dottridge, the great grandson of Alexander Seabury Childs (Cotuit’s first elected fire chief in 1912), recalls hearing stories of the old days. “They used to roll that thing all the time,” he laughs, talking about the 1916 engine. “They’d just get right back on.” In 1920, a permanent engine house was constructed at the corner of Main and School streets. In 1929, the lot on High Street, where the station is currently located, was purchased and construction started in 1937. In 1990, the build26

ing was completely renovated, adding additional office space, a training room, overnight facilities and a gym. Newly elected fire chief Paul Rhude, a Cotuit native, says the district welcomes the public, including kids, to visit and tour the building. “We’re always looking to increase our presence in the community,” he says. —Marina Davalos

Dancing With Water The Nines Art Gallery, new in Harwich Port, showcases stunning sea-inspired paintings and photography TEXT BY LISA LEIGH CONNORS PHOTOGRAPHY BY MICHAEL AND SUZ KARCHMER

L

arger-than-life paintings of glass bottles and the ocean—inspired by the waters of Chatham—hang by invisible fishing line on white brick walls at The Nines Art Gallery in Harwich Port. Welcome to the fresh, new and inviting space on Main Street. But it wasn’t always this way. When artist Lauren DiFerdinando first visited the old building in the spring, she nearly walked out because the space was in such disrepair. Fortunately, her boyfriend and inspiration, Chatham fisherman Luther Bates 36

of Bates Woodwork and handyman extraordinaire, helped her whip the space into shape. The couple worked day and night pulling down green bead board, repairing and spray painting the tin ceiling of 344 squares and exposed brick, installing new lighting and refinishing the wood floors, which were covered with carpet for decades. They only had two months to get it ready for Memorial Day weekend. “People seem to love to hang out here,” says DiFerdinando, who moved her original gallery from Dennis Port and changed

Artist Lauren DiFerdinando and photographer and fisherman Luther Bates beautifully renovated the space for The Nines Art Gallery. For her ocean paintings, DiFerdinando works from photographs taken by Bates while fishing at sea to get that on-the-water feeling.

the name from Tint to The Nines Art Gallery. The reason for the name change? “People kept thinking I was saying ‘tin’ most of the time,” says the artist, with a laugh, who is originally from Pennsylvania. DiFerdinando’s paintings of bottles—mostly fleamarket finds—are so soothing and eye-catching. What makes simple bottles so intriguing and appealing is the way DiFerdinando crops and paints them on a larger-than-life scale. “You feel like you’re in the space rather than looking at a still life,” says DiFerdinando. They are challenging to paint, she says, because you have to capture the light just right. Her series of bottles started with a painting of a round glass bowl when she was a student at Syracuse University. Even though she uses the same bottles every time, each painting is different because of the varied color palette. One is warmer and sharper with a stronger contrast, while another pulls the light into the bottle from the background. “I was always so interested in the translucency of the bottles, the clear glass with a hint of blue,” says DiFerdinando. “It’s a beautiful way to showcase something that ties in with Cape Cod and the water, but it’s a little more unique than just doing the landscape paintings.” Her latest work features a series of ocean paintings inspired by varying sea conditions in Chatham, captured first by Bates’ lens. DiFerdinando explains it was a natural transition going from bottles to painting the sea. “If you look at where the color is concentrated in the wave of the water, it’s very similar to the bottom of the bottle.” DiFerdinando says she always wanted to paint the water, but from a different perspective. Rather than painting a beach landscape, her goal was to capture that feeling of being on the water. So, she asked Bates to start taking photographs last year during fishing season since he’s on the water six days a week. He happily obliged. Bates, who holds his camera as close as possible to sea level, says it challenged him to think about what would make a good photograph. “What kind of ocean conditions are interesting enough to bring home?” he would ask himself. DiFerdinando and Bates have succeeded in bringing the ocean to life. As you stand in front of the painting, “Fluid,” it feels like you’re lost at sea, miles away from land—which, as Cape Codders know, isn’t always a bad thing. capecodmagazine.com

Lauren DiFerdinando’s paintings range in size from 30 x 40 inches to 40 x 60 inches and are also available in prints and smaller versions on metal. Luther Bates makes all of the custom wood frames and his photographs are also on display. The Nines Art Gallery, 562 Main St., Harwich Port, 215-429-6993, theninesartgallery.com SEPTEMBER 2017

IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK TEXT AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMANDA WASTROM

F

or the past year, I have been photographing Cape Cod houses and buildings. It began somewhat haphazardly, as a side project on Instagram. It was a way to both share the odd historical bits and pieces I have picked up in my travels and to keep my creative hand busy. I aim my iPhone at whatever I am drawn to: usually vernacular architecture from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. These photos are equal parts love story, historical trivia and visual explorations. I swoon for cedar shingles and 12 over 12 windows. I delight in historical sidebars and architectural oddballs. I marvel at the buildings that have stood silent as centuries swirl around them. Cape Cod’s history can be found not only in the written records we keep—diaries, ship’s logs, accounting books, town records—but also in the buildings, large and small, that past generations of residents and visitors have built. The keystone building that defines a main street. The small cottage hidden down a well-worn back road. Through them all, we can see the past three centuries of Cape Cod life unfold. Many of the historical records for lesser-known houses are blank. There is much more to be captured. So much more to discover.

WING FORT HOUSE 1641 ~ East Sandwich

One of the oldest houses on Cape Cod, the Wing Fort House has been owned by the Wing Family for more than three centuries beginning with Stephen Wing, one of the first colonial settlers in Sandwich. Today, it looks quite different (and significantly larger) than it would have in the 17th century. Architectural history from multiple centuries oozes out of the cracks in this house which, despite the name, was never actually used as a fort. It is open to the public with its rooms populated with furniture and other items owned by members of the Wing family. I recommend catching a tour by caretaker and architectural archeologist Dave Wheelock, who, unlike anyone else I have met, can unpack all of those layers of history.

DILLINGHAM HOUSE Circa 1659 ~ Brewster

Described as the outermost saltbox on Cape Cod, the Dillingham House is believed to be the second-oldest building on Cape Cod. Saltboxes were always oriented with the long, sloped roof (still visible despite additions and dormers) facing north, as protection from the brutal winter winds. John Dillingham was one of the first colonial settlers of Brewster, drawn to the area by his friend and fellow Quaker, John Wing (whose land, Wing Island, is now home to the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History). Quakers were often some of the earliest colonial residents in Cape towns, having fled from less-welcoming communities elsewhere in the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

COUNTING HOUSE 1772 ~ Nantucket

The Counting House is the only commercial 18th-century building left on Nantucket (most of them burned in the massive fire of 1846 that wiped out the downtown). It was built by William Rotch, an entrepreneur heavily involved in maritime trade. Three of Rotch’s ships, the Eleanor, Beaver, and Dartmouth, were involved in the Boston Tea Party in December 1773. Another of Rotch’s ships, the Bedford, was the first to fly the stars and stripes on the Thames River in London in 1783. In 1862, the building was purchased by the Pacific Club of Nantucket, a group of 24 men, most of whom were former captains involved in the Pacific whaling business. The club (which has since gone dormant) was a gathering spot where the captains would spend their afternoons playing cribbage and ‘gamming’ or telling stories of their sea-faring adventures.

FROTHINGHAM HOUSE

Circa 1780s ~ Bass River, South Yarmouth As 18th-century Cape Codders figured out how to monetize their maritime resources through shipping, fishing, whaling and salt-making (to name a few), many could afford to build and maintain larger homes. This house shows one such design, commonly known as a ‘square rigger’ because of its two-story, square façade said to mirror its namesake, the square-rigged schooner. Originally built in Harwich, this house was moved to its current location on Bass River in 1906-07 to begin a new chapter as a vacation house for the Frothinghams, summer residents from New York City. Cape Cod houses were often moved but it was unusual to move a house of this size. In a uniquely local technique called ‘flaking,’ the house was literally cut up into pieces that were labeled for reassembly. The entire house, chimney bricks and all, was pulled by horse cart from Harwich to Bass River, a distance of about 5 miles.

TRINITY METHODIST CHURCH 1878 ~ Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard

Who were the first modern tourists to Cape Cod? Religious travelers. Beginning in the early 1800s, week-long Methodist prayer meetings drew thousands of people to Wellfleet, Truro, Yarmouth and elsewhere. Most famously, they set up permanent camp in Oak Bluffs. Tents came first, then cottages, built in an ornate, gothic style unique to the Vineyard. ‘Wesleyan Grove’ as it was originally called, is considered to be the first resort on Cape Cod. Nestled in the heart of the compound (now called the Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association), this church was built by island carpenters and mirrors the architecture of the surrounding cottages. Unlike its counterpart, the Tabernacle (built a year later in 1879) which was only active in the summer season, the church served the island’s year-round Protestant Community.

THE ICE HOUSE 1907 ~ Provincetown

Gargantuan by Provincetown standards, the Ice House was originally built in 1907 as a five-story storage freezer for Provincetown’s robust fishing industry. The Consolidated Weir Company Cold Storage Plant, known simply as “The Consolidated,” was built like a factory and featured a steam-powered heat absorption system and concrete framing. It is the only one left out of the seven huge cold storage plants that once lined the East End of Commercial Street. Turned into condos and apartments in the 1960s and 1970s, it reflects Provincetown’s transition from a center of maritime industry to a luxury tourist destination.

WEST BARNSTABLE RAILROAD DEPOT 1910 ~ West Barnstable

The arrival of railroad transportation in the mid-19th century was a transformative moment in Cape Cod history. It facilitated the pivot to a tourism-based economy that still defines the region today. Old Colony Railroad Company extended the Cape Cod line to Barnstable, Yarmouth and Hyannis in 1854. The original wood station built at that time was replaced by this brick one in 1910. The depot’s design, a mix of Arts & Crafts and Spanish Mission, is unusual for Cape Cod. Passenger service continued for 105 years until 1959. This station is now one of the last remaining intact railroad stations on Cape Cod.

Tom Turco Volleyball coach at Barnstable High School, where he led teams to win 18 state championships. He was inducted into the Massachusetts Volleyball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2004 and named National Volleyball Coach of the Year in 2012.

capecodmagazine.com

John Wooden said, “Passion is temporary; love is enduring.” That’s how I feel about coaching. I’ve coached for nearly a third of a century, and I have come to appreciate just what a great journey this has been. The molding of individuals into a team, the moment of truth during competition and the satisfaction of seeing a team reach their true potential make coaching much more than a job. The book “The Winner Within” is a staple in our program, and our young athletes readily agree that it teaches them more about life than it does about volleyball. Aside from the winning and the championships, I have seen these young women fight through adversity on and off the court, and unite into a strong team that believes they can achieve–a team that, as Pat Riley writes, “understands and seizes the moment by giving an effort so intensive and so intuitive that it could only be called one from the heart.” As the years move on, I’m left with the reflection that I am blessed to have coached the sport I love in the place I love.

John Murphy Artist; Owner of Land Ho! In Orleans and Harwich For the last 47 years, I have been operating the Land Ho! restaurant in Orleans, and the support of my family has enabled me to pursue my childhood dream of painting. Of course, there is

nothing like hooking a big striped bass in season, either. Cape Cod offers me the chance to do it all. With fresh seafood, cold beer, great customers and painting in the best north light of any place in the world, I pinch myself every day and say there is no place on the planet that gets any better than this. For the record, my wife is a Cape Codder. Her family are descendants of the passengers on the Mayflower’s maiden voyage, and that also includes my three sons, born here as true Cape Codders.

Cherie Mittenthal Executive director at Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill I am Cape Cod. I am grateful for the light. I am grateful for doing what I love. I look out my window every day and see the change of shifting sands. The color of the water goes from dark to light, from gray to blue, from pink to black. The horizon line is everywhere. In my art, in my view, inside of me. Always sky above. Below may vary. Dogs, sand, water, dunes, cars, trees, seagrass, shacks, rocks, birds, love. I am grateful. I am of Cape Cod. 64

Mike O’Connor Owner of Bird Watcher’s General Store in Orleans In the spring of 1983, I was out of work, but I had an idea. I wanted to open a specialty shop for bird watchers. Why would I want to do that, you ask? From personal experience, I knew that birders often had difficulty finding what they needed. They had to drive to bookstores to buy field guides and to camera shops for their binoculars. They could obtain birdfeeders at hardware stores, but the best birdseed was found at grain dealers. Why not put everything under one roof and have it run by someone who was familiar with these products (i.e., me)? The Outer Cape was the perfect place to try something new and different. After all, here we have specialty shops dedicated to surfing, hammocks, kites, clambakes and even Swedish horses, so why not a bird watching store? At first, my main goal was to last long enough to silence the critics who told me that my idea wouldn’t fly (pun intended). And now, nearly four decades later, that goal seems to have been achieved.

Lysetta Hurge-Putnam Executive Director of Independence House in Hyannis, which has been in operation for 37 years, provides specialized services to adults, teenagers and children who are victims of domestic or sexual violence. Taking time to enjoy the beautiful landscape, especially two of my favorite haunts– Lighthouse Beach in Chatham and Red River Beach in Harwich–is a big part of my Cape Cod lifestyle. I walk along these beaches often because the rhythm of the ocean brings me clarity of thought, new ideas and solutions to challenges, and every time I renew my appreciation for the privilege of living on this beautiful peninsula. I love these beaches in the summer for the challenge of finding a parking spot and the fun of watching the variety of families as much as watching the ocean, wild or calm. I enjoy the harbor gray seals at Lighthouse beach, and of course, the occasional shark sighting. In the winter, I love the dearth of people, the desolation, the mighty roar of the open ocean, and the biting cold, which reminds me that I am alive and taking a walk along a Cape Cod beach. Finally, one of the abiding anchors in my life since age 20 has been a lived commitment to actively participate in ending genderbased intimate partner violence. I am privileged to lead the Cape Cod-founded, outstanding, pioneering, most recognized and leading nonprofit organization whose mission is to do just that.

Anne Packard Provincetown artist It is winter now, and the sea is darkened green as it crashes against the bulkhead of my home. It gives me energy and determination to once again go to my studio to paint it. Max Bohm, my grandfather, came to Provincetown in 1916. The town reminded him of a Brittany fishing village. He bought a home here. Now, some hundred years later, many of his descendants live here. All my children, their children and a great-granddaughter are here. It fascinates me that his one decision determined the fate of his family. As a child, I always summered here. As an adult, I only wanted to live here year-round. I finally managed it, and 40 years later, I have not lost an ounce of love for the Outer Cape.

Aqela Yousuf Owner of Perfect Fit Alterations in Orleans Cape Cod is my adopted home. I’m a washashore. I came to the Cape as a refugee from Afghanistan in 1986—from the mountains to the dunes. Coming from a landlocked country, the sea was a new concept. I came here for safety and to give my three daughters a chance for a better future. It was hard those first couple of years to be so far from everything that was familiar to me—my family, my friends, my language. I knew that the success of my children depended on how I reacted to this new challenge. I was their lighthouse. They were watching me like three ships on a dark choppy sea. This notion gave me strength to go on—to make sure they reached the shore. I soon learned that there were many lighthouses all over the Cape—people who went out of their way to help our family navigate this new land and get up on our feet. I am so thankful for their kindness and generosity. This year marks 30 years since we first arrived on Cape Cod. I am grateful for everyone in this community who made us feel at home. The Cape is our home—our refuge. 66

Ali Hawk Ten-year-old Ali Hawk lives with her parents and grandparents in what amounts to a family compound on Crystal Lake in Orleans, where she attends Orleans Elementary School. I live (basically) on Crystal Lake. I enjoy swimming in the lake and cannonballing off the dock. I feel as if Crystal Lake has taken up half of my heart. I also can’t forget about Nauset Outer Beach. When I am at Nauset Beach, I feel like I can stop time. I can feel the gentle breeze pricking my skin and my salty hair slapping my back. I feel like Nauset Beach and Crystal Lake are my second homes. I feel so blessed to live in such an amazing place that I can share with generations ahead. I am here today because my mom, aunt and grandparents summered here. They loved the place so much that my grandparents built a house here. Then, my mom built a house right next to my grandparents. But I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else than Orleans, Cape Cod.

Eliza Fitts Owner of the Wicked Oyster in Wellfleet The child of two “washashores,” I was born and raised in Provincetown. I grew up in its forests, dunes, waters and bogs. As a child, I would pick wild blueberries that were sweet as could be with an aftertaste of sand, rosehips with their furry seeds and beach plums tart with potential. We frolicked with friends in the waves of a warm stormy bay, seaweed sneaking in the sides of our suits. We combed the bogs for cranberries to stock the freezer and tediously gathered bayberries to make candles for Christmas gifts. We rolled down the dunes in summer and skied (or sledded) on them in the winter … the same dunes on which the ashes of my mother and sister are scattered. The wild, diverse landscape, and its equally wild and diverse cast of characters, nurture my soul and captivate me. And with the ebb and flow of each tide, each season, I am reminded of who I am.

Paul Niles Executive director of the Lighthouse Charter Middle School in East Harwich It is no cosmic error that I am a teacher in my 22nd year at the Lighthouse Charter School. My father fought in World War II and labored in construction, teaching six children the virtues of loyalty and hard work. My mother managed a frenetic household, worked with recovering drug addicts and bore her children’s transition into a “liberated” world with calm, composure, and grace. She taught us the principles of leadership—how to navigate the fraying strands of a creative, diverse community and work collaboratively to hold it all together, sometimes only by the force of sheer will. My wife, Annie, and children, Jackson and Maddy, taught me to recognize the beauty in life and the power of love and perseverance in overcoming obstacles. Cape Cod is a hub of educational innovation in our nation’s most educated state. At Lighthouse, we have built a beacon designed to awaken the intellectual, civic, and social potential of middle school kids. Our students charge into high school as dynamic learners, understanding the values of grit and civic responsibility as they construct the kinds of lives that make Cape Cod a better place. We launch kids who would have made my parents proud.

Pamela Talin-Bryant and James Talin Owners of Talin Bookbindery in Yarmouthport We are brother and sister bookbinders, and we have been binding and restoring books at the Talin Bookbindery since the late 1970s. Although we have customers throughout the country, we have a special interest in preserving the historic collections, records and documents of the Cape and Islands. Our interest in bookbinding was a natural one, as we grew up in an environment that encouraged reading. After graduating from college, Pam volunteered to compile an inventory of the ancient cemeteries of Brewster. During this project, Pam met a local bookbinder and started taking lessons in Providence, Rhode Island. Soon after, Jim became interested, and they both took binding lessons in Providence and Boston. Our bindery has worked on many projects related to Cape Cod and important to the history of the region, including town records, church records, ship logs, personal histories, and other books. These belong to institutions, libraries, organizations, municipalities and individuals. 68

Chatham Bars

Paul Rifkin Photography

One might assume that Paul Rifkin’s aerial shots of landmarks such as Chatham Bars, Sandy Neck and Cotuit Bay were taken with a drone, but Rifkin captures these images with his Canon Rebel from high above via helicopter. He doesn’t object to drone photography, he just likes to be personally involved. “I want to be the one up there looking through the camera, making the composition,” says Rifkin, who is self-taught and has been taking pictures all of his life. His aerial photographs of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant were published in The New Yorker (2016), and his aerial of Cotuit’s Lowell Park appeared in Yankee Magazine in 2012. Of the shots featured on the following pages, Rifkin says he’s most fond of the Falmouth Road Race and running by Nobska Light. “It’s one of the grandest views on the Cape,” says Rifkin. “Plus, I used to be a runner, so I feel intimately connected to it.” —Marina Davalos

ast April, when three friends and I decided we needed a short, sweet and fun break, I remembered a wonderful visit a few years ago to the Harbor View Hotel on Martha’s Vineyard, where my husband, daughter and I stayed in a luxurious suite in a cottage on the hotel’s Edgartown property. Long story short, we four women set off for the Vineyard on a chilly day last spring and were received into the warm, welcoming arms of the Harbor View. Fall is also a perfect time for a girls’ getaway to the Vineyard. Kids are back in school, the summer crowds have gone and yet most businesses stay open, some through the holidays. The trip my friends and I took was just an overnight, but it felt much longer. After depositing our luggage at the Captain Collins Cottage, and taking time to ooh and ahh over the stunning suite with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living space with a sleeper couch and an adjacent kitchen alcove, we walked the short distance to the historic main hotel and tucked into a cozy booth at Henry’s Bar. With a view of the ocean and the iconic Edgartown Light, we ate, drank and talked to

However, we have some suggestions: At the top of the list is Edgartown Books, an independent bookstore with a courtyard garden and great front porch for people-watching, plus BTB-Behind The Bookstore, a coffee shop and restaurant located, you guessed it, right in their own backyard!

Seated at a window table on the first-floor landing, we were privy to the action in both upstairs and downstairs dining rooms and yet were set just enough apart to feel cosseted. Alchemy’s particular magic welcomes guests with its elegant but easy ambience, solicitous staff and the dazzling food prepared under the direction of executive chef Brian Woods. Encouraged by our affable server, three of us couldn’t resist the nightly special, which I have since learned has graduated to the regular dinner menu. Clearly, there were many other fans of the truly sublime Sake Marinated Black Cod with baby bok choy, caramelized local ramps and yuzu soy emulsion. Overnight the weather cleared, so we decided to take a later ferry back than planned, a reservation change that is very doable in the off season. Basking in the Harbor View’s sunlit Lighthouse Grill, we lingered over the buffet brunch, impressed by the embarrassment of edible riches and not shy about going back for seconds of waffles, tri-tip roast with horseradish sauce, salmon pâté, buttery pastries, made-to-order-omelets and much more. A perfect end to a perfect getaway. capecodmagazine.com

Fresh Off the Vineyard Island cookbook authors & the importance of dinner TEXT BY KELLY CHASE PHOTOGRAPHY BY ELIZABETH CECIL AND RANDI BAIRD

T

wo cookbook authors encountered separate obstacles when it came to preparing the final meal of the day. Susie Middleton faced the challenge of coming up with fresh and flavorful vegetarian meals each night. Sarah Waldman had to feed her family of four. Yet the two prevailed under a common philosophy—a delicious dinner made with your own two hands is of the utmost importance to a great quality of life. Middleton and Waldman have another thing in common, too. They both live yearround on Martha’s Vineyard, which lacks street lights and big box stores, but boasts easy access to the outdoors and a close-knit, creative community. Island isolation has its challenges when it comes to filling the pantry and setting the table, but both authors found ways to create a year’s worth of healthy, tasty recipes.

n the early afternoon, I walk to Sarah Waldman’s home through the neighborhood of blooming gardens on Vineyard Haven. Her home is undeniably occupied by a young family of four: By the front door, there’s a collection of dried beach discoveries. Inside, mismatched bowls and plates are stacked on shelves beside a window that overlooks the backyard. Colorful drawings are proudly taped up. As we sit at her kitchen table, with a smudge of glitter on it, she tells me about her cookbook, “Feeding a Family: A Real-Life Plan for Making Dinner Work.” Waldman is a nutritionist. Her philosophy is to cook a range of whole foods. She’s also a mom to two young sons and an ingredient that seems to always be lacking among parents is time. “Between work, school and life, I continually have to dig really deep to figure out how to pull this dinner thing off, night after night,” she writes.

capecodmagazine.com

“The struggle to feed a family is real, and I know I’m not alone.” Sympathizing with busy families everywhere, Waldman makes a case and a master plan for cooking the last meal of the day. “What I encourage myself and other people to do is to give cooking for yourself and planning meals as much importance as you do other things in your family.” The same amount of time you dedicate to planning schedules around soccer games should go into planning and having your family meal. That simple act also teaches your ever-observant kids what to value themselves. Waldman has tips, too, for picky eaters, for involving the whole family in meal prep, and for selecting a time of day that works for you to make food. “I also don’t cook dinner every night. We cook three or four dinners a week and we’ll have leftovers or something simple from the pantry like pasta or rice and

SEPTEMBER 2017 

beans or egg sandwiches, and one night we’ll get some kind of takeout and eat it outside at the beach,” says Waldman. Waldman’s book is personal and filled with photographs of her family and family recipes, such as grandma’s skirt steak and her flounder with pink salad. She features longer Sunday suppers that require more prep, but can be perfect to unwind over the weekend. She also has entries from four guest families, as well as tips and tricks about nutrition and reasons to gather. “I hope that it is very helpful in terms of concrete ideas and how to formulate a plan that will work around a family dynamic of how to eat dinner together more often,” says Waldman. “I wanted it to be useful in a real world, but I also want it to be fun to look at and beautiful and have family friendly recipes that you haven’t seen everywhere else.”

SERVES 4 • MAKES 15 MEDIUM-SIZE MEATBALLS

Ingredients: 1 pound beets (any color), peeled and cut into ½-inch dice 1½ pounds Yukon gold or Red Bliss potatoes, peeled (if they have thick skin), scrubbed, and cut into ½-inch dice 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 small onion, finely chopped 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley Freshly ground black pepper 4 large eggs

Ingredients: ¾ pound each ground turkey and pork 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, minced ½ cup finely ground fresh bread crumbs ¼ cup whole milk ½ medium apple, peeled and grated 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated 1 teaspoon kosher salt; 8 grinds of black pepper ½ teaspoon ground cumin 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 2 cups favorite marinara sauce 4 long French rolls, split Parmesan cheese, for serving

1. In a 12-inch cast iron skillet, cover the diced beets and potatoes with water and bring to a strong simmer over medium heat. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 7 minutes, then drain them and wipe out the skillet. 2. Heat the oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the boiled beets and potatoes, chopped onion, and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Cook until the potatoes begin to turn golden, about 8 minutes (tossing frequently). Stir in the parsley. Reduce the heat to medium. Make 4 wide wells in the hash. Crack 1 egg into each well and season the eggs with pinches of salt and grinds of pepper. Loosely cover the skillet with a sheet of aluminum foil. Continue to cook until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still runny, about 6 minutes. If the bottom of the hash appears to be cooking too quickly, turn the heat to medium-low. Serve with a big bottle of hot sauce and a green salad.

1. Combine the turkey and pork in a mixing bowl. 2. Heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, apple, and carrot; cook briefly until wilted, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set it aside. 3. Combine the bread crumbs and milk in a large bowl. Add the meat, onion and apple mixture, cumin, salt, pepper, and parsley. Mix well. Roll the mixture into golf ball–size rounds and set them aside. You should have 15 meatballs. 4. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs, cook for 5 minutes, then flip them and cook for another 5 minutes or until browned. Add the marinara sauce to the skillet and bring it to a simmer, then cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly. 5. To serve, toast the rolls and brush the insides with a little olive oil. Pile the meatballs and sauce into the toasted rolls, top with some Parmesan, and enjoy.

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Brush a donut pan with canola oil. (If you don’t have a donut pan, these also make yummy mini muffins or small loaf cakes.) 2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, coconut sugar, apple butter, maple syrup, cider, yogurt and 3 tablespoons of canola oil. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until moistened. 3. Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into each donut round (don’t fill the batter to the top or it will overflow). 4.

Wipe out the pan and then re-coat it with canola oil. Repeat the baking process with the remaining batter to make a total of 12 donuts. 5. For a special topping, brush the baked donuts with maple syrup and sprinkle them with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.

Topping (optional) 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup 2 to 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon ¼ cup pure cane sugar

O

n a bright summer morning, I meet Susie Middleton at a coffee shop in Vineyard Haven before she returns to work at a new position as special projects editor at the Vineyard Gazette and Martha’s Vineyard magazine. “Simple Green Suppers” is Middleton’s fourth book and her first vegetarian book. As a cook, former food magazine editor, farmer and author, Middleton was by no means a novice, but her new vegetarian diet came with a culinary challenge. “I found myself with a real conundrum of fixing a simple vegetarian meal every night and I realized there’s quite a bit of strategy involved in that,” she says. “Simple Green Suppers” offers tips and techniques for creating a successful vegetarian kitchen. Middleton suggests

making items ahead of time, such as sauces and dressings, to plan for the busy work week. She also helps you get organized in the kitchen—think mason jars full of dry grains and beans lining an open shelf. Her light tone throughout the book feels like she’s a really good friend, good enough to help you clean out your pantry and your fridge. Learning to cook a delicious meal is empowering, but standing in front of ingredients you have never seen before can be daunting. Middleton understands this, which is why she adds a pinch of humor. Her light-hearted handholding through the chopping and stir-frying is her way of giving back. “One of the things I can do is to help people learn to cook, and to do that, you have to make it fun.”

Ramen-esque noodles in rich vegetable broth SERVES 2 Ingredients: 4 to 5 ounces dried Chinese curly wheat noodles or baked ramen noodles 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus 2 pinches 1 tablespoon white (shiro) miso 1 tablespoon low-sodium tamari 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil 3 cups late-season vegetables, sliced or chopped into similar-size pieces (a combination of four or five of the following: bell peppers, onions or shallots, mushrooms, eggplant, cauliflower or broccoli, bok choy, napa cabbage, and/or red or green cabbage) 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger 3 cups rich vegetable broth 2 soft-cooked eggs or poached eggs Freshly ground black pepper (optional) 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 1 to 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds 1/4 to 1/3 cup sliced scallions (any parts)

1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil and cook the noodles until done, about 2 minutes. Drain them well in a colander and rinse briefly under cold water. Let dry a bit in the colander, then transfer to a medium bowl and season with a big pinch of the salt. 2. Whisk together the miso, tamari, sesame oil and 2 tablespoons of water. Set aside. 3. In a medium Dutch oven or large saucepan, heat the grapeseed oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the vegetables and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are browned in places and starting to shrink but still a little bit firm, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the ginger and cook, stirring, until just softened and fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the rich vegetable broth and bring to a boil, then turn off the heat. Whisk the miso mixture into the hot broth and remove the pot from the stove. 4. Divide the cooked noodles between two wide, deep soup bowls and ladle the broth and vegetables over all. Add 1 egg to each bowl and season the eggs with a pinch of salt and a couple of grinds of black pepper. Garnish with generous amounts of chopped cilantro, sesame seeds and scallions. Serve right away with a fork, spoon and napkin. 88

Grilled Naan “Pizza” Ingredients: 2 large naans (4 to 5 ounces each) or 4 small naans (3 ounces each), thawed if frozen Extra-virgin olive oil Kosher salt or coarse sea salt 2/3 cup whipped lemon-thyme feta (see cookbook for recipe) 1 to 1½ cups Quick-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes (see cookbook for recipe) 1 small or 1/2 large slicing cucumber, unpeeled, cut into very thin slices 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil, mint, or oregano, or small whole leaves

1. Preheat a gas grill to medium or medium-high heat. If using the larger naans, cut each in half crosswise so that you have four half-moon shaped pieces. Brush the naans with oil on both sides and sprinkle with salt. 2. Put the naans directly on the grill grate and cook just until grill marks appear and the bottom is starting to turn golden, 1½ to 2 minutes. Flip over and cook for 1 more minute. (You want the naan to be grilled enough on the first side to begin losing its flexibility, but not so much that it gets stiff. Leave the second side somewhat soft.) Remove from the grill. 3. While the naans are still hot, spread one side of each piece with 2 to 3 tablespoons of the whipped feta. Arrange an equal portion of the roasted tomatoes (slightly overlapping for a pretty look if you like) over the feta, leaving some of the feta peeking out around the edges. Arrange enough cucumber slices, slightly overlapping, to cover the tomatoes on each “pizza.” Sprinkle the cucumber with salt, drizzle with a little olive oil and garnish each with 1/2 tablespoon of the fresh herbs. Eat right away.

Ingredients: 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 2 tablespoons maple syrup Kosher salt Four 1-inch-thick slices of ciabatta bread 1 medium red onion, cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices 2 ripe-but-firm peaches or nectarines, cut in half and pitted Extra-virgin olive oil 1½ cups halved Sun Gold tomatoes or other colorful cherry tomatoes 4 to 5 cups arugula 3 to 4 tablespoons crème fraîche or sour cream (optional)

1. Preheat a gas grill to medium heat. 2. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, lime juice, maple syrup and a big pinch of salt and set aside. 3. Arrange the bread slices, onion slices and peach halves and brush both sides generously with olive oil and season with a little salt. 4. Arrange the bread and the onion slices on the grill. Cover and cook until the bread is golden and marked on the bottom, about 2 minutes each side. Once the onions have grill marks, turn them over and continue cooking until the other side is marked, 3 to 4 minutes more. Remove the onions from the grill and wrap them in aluminum foil to help them finish cooking through. 5. Arrange the peaches (cut-side down) on the grill and cook until grill marks form, 3 to 4 minutes. (Try not to move the fruit for the first 3 minutes.) Rotate

the peaches 90 degrees (to make cross-hatch grill marks) and continue cooking for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the peaches from the grill. 6. Cut each slice of grilled bread into 8 to 12 pieces and put the pieces in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the balsamic mixture and toss well. 7. Arrange the arugula loosely on a large serving platter. Place peach halves over the arugula. Drop the tomatobread mixture all around the peaches. Separate the grilled onion rings and arrange them over the salad. Season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with as much of the remaining balsamic mixture as you like. 8. When serving the salad onto plates, garnish each portion with a dollop of crème fraîche or sour cream (if desired), to be tossed in individually for a creamy finish.

Connected Community “Simple Green Suppers” photographer Randi Baird lives on the island. Pieces of pottery were made by local ceramists and a few Vineyard homes were borrowed for photo shoots. “Feeding a Family” was shot over the course of a year by Vineyard-based photographer Elizabeth Cecil. Tying the two together was Roost Books editor Jennifer Urban Brown, who is, naturally,

originally from the Vineyard. In April, the community gathered for a launch party at Morrice Florist, Brown’s sister Emily Coulter’s floral shop. “It was fun for the community because people in this community enjoy supporting each other and there’s a lot of pride in homegrown talent and so people show up and support,” says Susie Middleton.

Island Life Both authors found themselves looking for a particular way of life and seem to have found it on the Vineyard. Susie Middleton explained after 11 years of a stressful job, she decided it was time for a change and hopped on a ferry. After a few months, she decided to stay. “I think something deep inside of me, after visiting it over the years, had recognized that this place was very special and that I might be really happy here,” says Middleton. She relishes the accessibility of the outdoors and the abundance of coastline and trails on the 96 square-mile island. “It is a bigger island than most people realize—it’s six towns, but the access to the natural world is so immediate. I love being able to drive by the beach every day and to walk across the street and be on a land bank trail.” For SarahWaldman, whose mother spent time here, she had only fond memories of the island. After living in Providence, Rhode Island, the move she and her husband made capecodmagazine.com

five years ago was an intentional life shift for their sons. “People know my kids everywhere we go—the library, the bank, the grocery store. It really feels like their home, not just this house, but this whole island,” she says. Waldman talks about the number of family farms on the island and kids being able to be kids. “I think just for two little boys to have this kind of childhood—they fish, they surf, they crab, they pond skate in the winter,” she says. “If they choose to leave when they are teenagers, that’s fine, totally up to them, but this is really the place I want them to have this part of their lives to be free and explore the world on their own.” Family, food, connecting to nature and each other are all good philosophies for building a life in a specific place. They also happen to be good reasons to pull a chair up to the table each night. You have all the tools and explanations, so, what’s for dinner tonight?

A New Twist on Hyannis Landmark

RIGHT: JEN VILL A; ABOVE: DAN CUTRONA

Hyannis has a snazzy new restaurant called The West End, and locals do a double take as they drive by and see the crisp, new signage at the site of the former landmark The Paddock. The building was purchased by Jen Villa and David Noble (pictured at left) earlier this year. “We wanted to keep the spirit of the building alive,” says Villa. They’ve repurposed much of the interior, adding new twists—purple walls in the parlor and zinc tabletops in the dining room. Villa, who owns The Little Beach Gallery and The Local Juice on Main Street in Hyannis, says she was seeking a new business opportunity. When the opportunity arose to purchase the Hyannis property, Villa envisioned a speakeasy vibe within the walls of the 235-seat landmark. “I could see all the details and colors,” says Villa, who was inspired by a speakeasy in Washington, D.C. Villa told her friend, David Noble, owner of award-winning Embargo, and he jumped on board. “I wanted a new challenge,” says Noble. Chefs Toby Hill and Nicholas Caplice use local ingredients and work with the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance to bring local seafood to the table. New twists on lobster include the “deconstructed” lobster roll, and—wait for it—Cape Cod Lobster Escargot: fresh lobster, herb butter, herbed panko crumbs (pictured at left). Refreshments feature cocktails and mocktails with ice cubes frozen with a cherry or an orange twist inside. All this, while the sounds of swing and big band music fill the atmosphere. “It’s a place where you can get dressed up and come out,” says Villa. —Marina Davalos The West End, 20 Scudder Ave., Hyannis, 508-775-7677, westendhyannis.com capecodmagazine.com

Fresh Start After 20-month hiatus, Vers reopens in Orleans TEXT BY LISA LEIGH CONNORS PHOTOGRAPHY BY MICHAEL AND SUZ K ARCHMER

T

he highly anticipated opening of Vers earlier this summer has elevated the dining scene in Orleans. “This kind of restaurant doesn’t really exist here and that is always a first consideration when we are looking at new spaces,” says general manager and co-owner Karen Haffmans. “We always ask ourselves, ‘What is missing from the dining scene and how can we add to it?’” The fine-dining restaurant reopened nearly two years after leaving their location inside the Chatham Orpheum Theater. “We definitely miss Chatham, but a lot of our regular customers have come up here,” says Karen, who manages the office, while her husband, Jonathan Haffmans, serves as executive chef. “It’s been very exciting to see everyone’s reactions and appreciation for our reopening.” The sleek, modern restaurant, which features gray tones and pops of orange, is much larger than their previous location and accommodates more

diners: 57 seats vs. 19 seats. Architects Siemasko + Verbridge in Chatham worked with the Haffmans to open up and redesign the space—formerly the Orleans Public House. They knocked down a half wall and added a lounge-cocktail area with benches lined with pillows. They also turned the L-shaped bar into one long bar and carried over touches from their Chatham location, such as the glazed Porcelain gray-and-white tile for the entryway. “We wanted to recreate Vers our own way,” says Karen, referring to the fact they no longer share space with a movie theater. “We wanted to put our own visual stamp on it.” Diners will still find signature dishes like the vegetable garden salad, tuna tartare, the rib-eye steak, the chef ’s homemade ricotta gnocchi, and of course, the popular dessert Truth or Dare—a surprising tableside special for two. On the day I vis-

ited, I tried the scallop carpaccio with hibiscus tea and passion fruit sorbet; the lobster ceviche with compressed watermelon and passion fruit; the Atlantic monkfish; and tropical dessert with coconut, mango and banana cake. Everything was beautifully presented as a work of art and unlike anything I have ever tasted before. Every bite was so refreshing, unique and all the flavors complemented one another. Although it’s fine dining, Vers has a comfortable vibe and is not overly formal. With the newly expanded location, Vers also offers a wider range of wines—both in style and pricing. Karen consulted with Annie Longley from the Nor’east Beer Garden in Provincetown to create custom cocktails, such as Too High (vodka, lemon juice, lavender-pepper syrup and soda water) and The Bachelor (amaro meletti, dark rum and bitters). Since Vers means “fresh” in Dutch, it’s no surprise that chef Haffmans regularly visits the weekly farmers market in Orleans to pick up local greens, fingerling potatoes, radishes, sunchokes capecodmagazine.com

and even a whole pig for the charcuterie. The menu’s inspiration is seasonal and Vers uses as much local product as possible. “The scallops are from Provincetown, fresh from the boat, and we use fresh lobster from Chatham,” says Jonathan, who was born and raised in the Netherlands. “We are also featuring local skate on the menu as well as monkfish.” During his time off from Vers, Jonathan worked as a consultant for British Beer Company and served as the culinary director for Chatham Wine Bar. He was also instrumental in helping to open Mom & Pops Burgers in Chatham. Vers is not necessarily an everyday restaurant, but a lovely special occasion restaurant. One regular customer from Boston summed up the restaurant’s opening to Karen this way: “The last bottle of wine we had was the Avancia Godello [in Chatham] and the first bottle of wine we had [in Orleans] was the Avancia Godello. You haven’t skipped a beat.” “That was the sentiment from our customers opening night— that we hadn’t skipped a beat,” says Karen. “We’re back.”

Customers can choose from breakfast standards such as old-fashioned corned beef hash, breakfast sandwiches or huevos rancheros—two eggs with ranchero sauce, avocado and feta.

Located in the former Old Harbor Café, the renovated space is decorated with gas station memorabilia and a giant mural with local references to the town—Chatham clocks, sharks, fishermen, and the Coast Guard rescue boat

last word “I am driven by a sense of responsibility and a sense of urgency to broadcast what I have learned: that sharks are integral to the planet’s health and that they are in trouble and need our help.” —Brian Skerry

Dr. Greg Skomal, photographed by Brian Skerry, records footage of a white shark swimming near Nauset Beach. Skerry, who has photographed sharks around the world, says the Cape’s shallow, murky water and strong currents make underwater shots especially challenging.

A “Shark” (National Geographic), by Brian Skerry, 208 pages, $25 104

CAPE COD MAGAZINE

ward-winning journalist and National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry has been fascinated with sharks since he first saw one underwater at the age of 20. Celebrating the release of his latest book, “Shark,” Skerry gave a talk in July at the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club in Harwich. In conjunction with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, based in Chatham, Skerry told stories of his many encounters around the world and how we must all work to conserve the ocean and its many inhabitants. Skerry sits on the board for the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and works closely with local lead scientist Dr. Greg Skomal to study and tag great white sharks off the coast of Cape Cod. —Meghan Nanan
