Running on Creativity


Janice Randall Rohlf

All great headlines, story concepts and other ideas usually come to me on one of my morning runs. Several months ago, while on the bike path with my friend Rebecca, she asked, “Have you seen that new book ‘The ABC’s of Cape Cod,’ by the Cabo Cado artist? I would really like to read more about him, his wife and their dog! They seem so cool and interesting!” The illustrator’s name is Vinnie Arnone. He lives in a house along the banks of the Cape Cod Canal with his wife, Claudia del Castillo, and their dog, Lupe. I was familiar with his pillows, postcards and artwork, mainly because he illustrated our Best of Cape Cod July cover in 2013. I immediately started to follow Cabo Cado on Instagram and got to know the artist’s family through his daily postings: of his sketches, their beloved dog, Lupe, and their travels to Puerto Rico. When photographer Dan Cutrona and I eventually met up with them a few months later, we had a blast hanging out at their bungalow and hearing about their creative process and inspirations. The Best of Cape Cod July issue is one of our most treasured issues because it celebrates the people, places and activities, voted by you, the readers, in our annual survey! This year, we added some new categories, which received great responses, including best cheese shop, brewery, rainy day venue, movie theater, museum and yarn shop. A toast to all of the 162 winners! In keeping with our 20th anniversary theme all year long, we highlight 20 of our favorite beaches from Falmouth to Provincetown. As you can imagine, it was hard narrowing down the list to 20, so we also included a short sidebar listing two beaches on the islands and one honorable mention in Bourne. Check out the variety of retail shops in Hyannis, Dennis and Chatham that have new digs—and even new names—in “Trading Spaces + Moving Places.” Plus, read about the new Ten Pin Eatery in the mall, and turn to our Datebook section for July 4 parades and other Independence Day activities in your town. Happy Summer!

Family Fun to Spare Let ’em roll! A collaboration between two renowned Cape Cod businesses, Ryan Family Amusements and Chapin’s Restaurant, Ten Pin Eatery in Hyannis welcomes diners, bowlers and gamers—anyone looking to have a great time in a vibrant setting. “There truly is something for everyone,” says Trevor Cunningham, Ryan’s business development manager. “People love our custom Cape Cod-themed laser tag, and our game room is phenomenal.” Guests can play in the arcade, bowl a few games on one of eight alleys (traditional or interactive), or reserve the private VIP room replete with three lanes, a full bar and plush seating—perfect for a special event. For the gamers, Ten Pin offers two virtual reality arenas and three escape rooms with themes unique

to the Cape. Hungry? Chapin’s executive chef Kevin Violet and his staff serve up delicious fare and libations that can be enjoyed while bowling or in their spacious dining area. Start with one of their shared appetizers like shaved steak and cheese spring rolls, and then dig into one of their specialty pizzas, gourmet salads or charbroiled steak tips. Kids can feast on fun fare such as foot-long hot dogs, burgers and fish & chips. Having gamed up a hearty thirst tagging frenemies or knocking down pins, adults can take a seat at the inviting full-service bar. That’s a strike! —Marjorie Naylor Pitts Ten Pin Eatery, 769 Iyannough Road, Hyannis, 508-771-2100,

Swimsuit Designer Navigates Her Own Path

JULY 2018



Designer Molly J. Curley of East Falmouth launched her own line of nautically inspired swimwear last year. A favorite among customers is the patriotic All-American Girl suit, pictured at left.

For fashion model and business school graduate Molly J. Curley, 23, of East Falmouth, launching a line of swimwear was a natural next step in a life lived close to the sea and focused on fashion. “Being from the Cape, I love being around the water,” says Curley, a swimsuit designer who comes from a family of entrepreneurs. “Swimwear was a natural for me.” In April of 2017, Curley started Molly J Swimwear, her own collection of nautically inspired bathing suits. Curley’s line of highquality swimwear is sold at select retailers on the Cape, such as Green Eyed Daisy in Falmouth, Hi-Ho in Osterville and Beach Bum Surf Co. in Chatham. A favorite among her customers is the patriotic All-American Girl suit, perfect for July 4 yet styled to be worn anytime the sun shines. For her company logo, Molly chose the compass rose—inspired by a

JULY 2018 

necklace she received from her parents on her 21st birthday. “I wanted the swimwear to have an inspirational aspect to it,” says Molly, “so it’s all about creating one’s own path, navigating one’s destiny.” —Marjorie Naylor Pitts CAPE COD MAGAZINE



Chatting with

Sandy Mullins Owner of Cape Chic How long have you owned Cape Chic? Since April 2013. I’ve been in business five years and I am just starting year six! Where is your new location? How is it different from your last place? I moved the store to 176 Main St. in Falmouth last year. It’s less than a half mile from my old location, but it’s right on Main Street now. It’s sandwiched between two wonderful gift stores, Homespun and Twigs, and a few fabulous restaurants, like Añejo and the Pickle Jar Kitchen. I’m right in the middle of all the town activity. What do you sell at your store? A curated selection of easy chic women’s clothing, jewelry and accessories. Distinctive styles you won’t see everywhere. We pay attention to what our customers respond to, so we can surprise and delight them. We want our pieces to be their favorite go-to pieces. What are some of your best-selling items? Customers have been responding to our Boho Chic tops. The finishing details and fit make them perfect for dressy and casual wear. XCVI Wearables are also a favorite. The stretch poplin is lightweight and easy, perfect for Cape Cod in the summer. This season, it’s all about the embellished hems, including embroidery and release hems. What sets you apart? We spend a lot of time curating unique items for our customers and choosing styles for every age group. It’s important to search for the best styles and fabrics. Fashion is fun and constantly changing. It provides people a way to express themselves. Fashion should be chic, as well as easy, wearable and comfortable for real life.

THEN & NOW •••


“Dragger on the Ways,” by Salvatore Del Deo, 1965

“Plans for a center for the arts are in progress,” wrote the writer, activist and preservationist Josephine Del Deo in her journal in March of 1965. The idea had been discussed for some time in Provincetown’s arts community before the Fine Arts Work Center was founded in 1968 by a collection of artists and writers. “We wanted to provide a vehicle for artists to be able to stay here in the winter,” says the late Josephine’s husband, artist Salvatore Del Deo, who came to Provincetown in 1946 to study with acclaimed painter Henry Hensche. Space was initially provided in studio apartments at the Days Lumberyard on Pearl Street. In 1972, the Fine Arts Work Center purchased the lumberyard for its permanent home. The Del Deos, along with fellow artists, writers and patrons of the arts, including Fritz Bultman, Stanley Kunitz 24


and Hudson D. Walker, believed that emerging artists needed the freedom to pursue their work early in their careers. This has been FAWC’s mission for 50 years. The center awards fellowships to emerging artists and writers from around the world and provides housing studio space. The seven-month residency has seen the likes of visual artists Ellen Gallagher and Jennifer Packer as well as writers Michael Cunningham and Ann Patchett. —Marina Davalos The Fine Arts Work Center has special 50th anniversary exhibitions, lectures and readings scheduled throughout the year taking place in Provincetown, Boston and New York.

“Painting is my chance to do what I love and to express myself and to create a view of life as I see it,” says artist Helen Grimm. Above, “Hatches Harbor,” 48 in. by 48 in., oil on canvas.

A Balancing Act

Truro painter and school nurse Helen Grimm says her connection to the Outer Cape environment helps keep her grounded. BY JOSEPH PORCARI Helen Grimm’s studio, connected to the kitchen, is a hub of family life and anything but an oasis of solitude. A corner of the space functions as a laundry room, the cement floor provides a skateboard surface for her son and there’s a wall of shelves filled with household tools and surplus pots and

pans. Nonetheless, the Truro painter projects an aura of serenity, illuminated by a radiant smile and punctuated by occasional bursts of self-deprecating laughter. If there’s a secret to Grimm’s serenity, it would be her ability to balance the roles of wife, mother of twin teenagers,

Truro school nurse, herbalist, organic gardener and artist. Her connection to the Outer Cape environment helps keep her grounded and more centered. “The water, sand and salt scrub my brain free of day-to-day stresses,” says Grimm, adding that her family loves the wild stretches of open space. “We especially enjoy hiking through the woods of Truro to the cliffs high above the ocean,” she says. “We love the water—high tide, low tide, ocean, bay, marsh and pond, and foraging for wild food, clamming, gathering oysters, blueberries and cranberries.” With a dual B.A. and B.F.A. in art history and painting from Cornell University, Grimm credits artists as diverse as Giotto (“for the emotion he conveyed with the simplest of lines and forms”) and Richard Diebenkorn (“for his abstracted landscapes of the ’50s”) as major influences. After a few years living as a “starving artist” in the Bay area, Grimm’s interest in herbal medicine and desire for a more secure career motivated her to pursue a B.S. degree in nursing. By choosing this path, it helped enrich her life without taking a permanent detour from art. When her twins were 2, she reintegrated painting into her daily routine. “Life will pull you in any direction we let it,” says Grimm. “It is easy to fall into circumstance. Painting is my chance to do what I love and to express myself and to create a view of life as I see it. The process has taught me to take charge when I need to.” Grimm’s oil paintings on canvas, infused with the colors of sky, dunes, grasses and lichen, engage the viewer with bold calligraphic lines. They emit an energy generated by the push and pull between abstraction and representation. Grimm cites 42


mollusks—and especially clams and oysters—as a source of inspiration and subject matter. She is fascinated by the microcosms within a seashell and sees them as landscapes in miniature. Shells are a vehicle for exploring line, shape and texture and she is attracted by their contradictions: They are humble, yet polished and jewel-like. “The abstracted shells remind me of looking underwater. You aren’t quite sure what you are seeing, but you feel its essence. Their color and form thrill me, and always have. They are my muses.” Grimm’s balanced life is channeled into her paintings and there’s a good feeling to them. “Helen’s work makes me happy, plain and simple,” says patron Jeffrey McCullough. “And that is reason enough to look at a painting over and over.” “Intertidal,” a show of Helen Grimm’s latest paintings, will be on display July 20 through August 9 at Four Eleven Gallery, 411 Commercial St., Provincetown,

2018 PAW PALOOZA At Cape Cod’s biggest annual dog festival, man’s best friend will be flying, swimming, diving and entertaining the masses. The two-day event, hosted by the Agway of Cape Cod Charitable Foundation, features police K-9 demonstrations, a Frisbee Dog show, a puppy pool pavilion, food trucks, a “radar run” to test your dog’s speed and a doggie caricature artist.

23' 5" The distance of the longest jump into the pool at last year's festival. That champ named Sinjin (pictured at left) lives in Brewster and will be returning to defend his title this year! (The World Record, by the way, is 31 feet and is held by two dogs, a Black Lab and a Whippet.

27,000 Gallons of water needed to fill up the pool from a nearby fire hydrant.

$53,000 The amount donated to the Animal Rescue League of Boston's Cape Cod shelter and the MSPCA shelter in Centerville as a result of Paw Palooza in its first two years.

Paw Palooza will be held July 14 and 15: Saturday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School, 210 Station Ave., Yarmouth, A $7 suggested donation at the door. Kids under 12 and dogs are free. Net proceeds benefit animal welfare organizations on the Cape.

1,200 Number of dogs expected to attend Paw Palooza over the course of the weekend this year!


26 miles per hour

The fastest speed clocked in the "Radar Run" last year. Dogs and their owners enter the run as a pair. The owner throws a tennis ball and as the dog chases it, his/her speed is recorded by an official Orleans Police Department radar gun.

HEALTHY FUEL: BOL Owner Alix Tillet has masterfully operated BŌL for the past four years. The menu features mouthwatering, eye-catching organic acai bowls and smoothies. Choose from popular menu items like the Jelly (strawberries, blueberries, peanut butter) or the Somerset (pitaya, bananas, mango). What drove Tillet to open BŌL is quite simple: “Food and color make me so happy,” she says. In her battle with Lyme disease, Tillet has found that fueling her body with good food is one way she has healed herself. At the core of BŌL, she says, is the idea that fueling your body with pure and beautiful food positively affects the way you move, think and feel throughout the day—and ultimately your life. This summer, check out their new location in Wellfleet! —Taylor Fry

Caffe Gelato Bertini was among the 2016 editor’s picks in Cape Cod Magazine, and they have since moved from Hyannis to Yarmouth. The popular Italian ice cream and espresso shop celebrates its 10th anniversary this season on South Street, where they share a building with Great Island Bakery. The new location allows more space for indoor and outside café tables, says Cindy Duby, who operates the shop with her husband, Tom. The Dubys make all the gelato (milk based) and sorbetto (water based) from scratch using local milk and fruits and imported Italian nuts and flavorings. The top seller is Cape Sea-Salted Caramel Cream, a fiore di latte gelato laced with house-made caramel. “In our early days, few knew what gelato was, and we did a lot of explaining,” says Cindy. “But people were immediately drawn by the intense flavor and, due to the lower fat content, viewed it as a healthier alternate to ice cream.” Open through October.

Hog Island Beer Co., 28 West Road, Orleans, 508-255-BEER (2337), Naukabout Brewery, 13 Lake Ave., Mashpee,




Last winter, Hog Island Beer Co. underwent major renovations. The brewery now features a bar that replicates a long board, and a real Winnebego cut in half hangs on the wall. There’s also a replica of Henry Beston’s Outermost House where you can pick up your food through the windows. The interior’s open space offers a fun, energetic vibe. Hang out on the expansive lawn, sit at a picnic table or play games like cornhole or pingpong and test your mental skills with a giant Jenga game. Enjoy delicious bites, such as lobster fritters and beef tacos with spicy bacon jam and radish-pineapple sauce as well as beers on tap, including White Shark Wheat and Outermost IPA. Meanwhile, over in Mashpee, craft beer enthusiasts can “knock about” at the recently opened Naukabout Brewery, located at the former Flume restaurant site. The comfortably rustic taphouse features a rotating selection of eight “hop-forward” beers, such as Quittin’ Time New England IPA (juicy, tropical, Douglas fir pine: delicious!). While the brewery serves up the beer, local food trucks offer a varied selection of noshes. Cheers!

Team Lavender, Team Lemongrass and Team Oatmeal. Welcome to soap-making classes at Summer House Natural Soaps in Hyannis! “Each team makes a sizable batch of soap they pour into trays and everybody gets to take home all the flavors,” says owner Ann Miller, who has been making soap for 20 years. “We try to steer them toward scents that are easy to work with.” Three teachers oversee nine students who are divided into groups of three. Each team has its own scale and hot plate for melting fats. Some of the main ingredients include coconut, sunflower seed, palm oil, cocoa butter and lye. The class, which lasts about three hours, is part lecture, part hands-on and part chemistry. At the end, you’ll walk away with about three pounds of soap in three different scents, equivalent to about 15 bars. Sign up for their newsletter online to find out about upcoming classes. Don’t have time for a class? Stop by their free soap-making demonstrations from 10:30-11 a.m. every Friday through Columbus Day. Afterward, head next door to Cape Cod Beer at 11 a.m for a tour!

The “perfect” beach means different things to different people.

Here are 20 of our favorites, including two on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, plus one honorable mention in Buzzards Bay. Whatever vibe you crave, you’re bound to find it at one of these sublime sandy spots. TEXT AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY MARINA DAVALOS

JULY 2018 



Like its Wellfleet counterparts, Ballston boasts cliffs and waves, though slightly smaller in size. Not only do Ballston’s sands stretch out endlessly in either direction along the Cape Cod National Seashore, but sandbars are aplenty at low tide. Picturesque tranquility.

Located in the Cape Cod National Seashore, Cahoon Hollow features one of the Cape’s most striking cliff landscapes. This beach is awesome not only for its massive dunes on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, but also for the famously popular Wellfleet Beachcomber bar and restaurant. Known for world-class surfing.



JULY 2018

Off the beaten track, Chappy Beach sits on a somewhat isolated expanse of peninsula facing Buzzards Bay to the west —think beautiful sunsets. This long stretch of beach is perfect for walking or just hanging out. Windsurfers frequent the beach for Chappy’s offshore winds. Cross the road and you’re in West Falmouth Harbor, where a marsh is maintained by Salt Pond Area Bird Sanctuaries.

Even at high tide, there’s plenty of room on this large bayside beach. At low tide, walk out on seemingly endless sandbars. A jetty to the west borders Sesuit Harbor, so watching the boats come in and out of the harbor is an extra bonus. At low tide, kids will love playing in the tidal pools and finding hermit crabs. Resident parking only.

JULY 2018 



The southernmost beach along the National Seashore, Coast Guard is lined with cliffs and also has great surf. Walk for miles in either direction, feeling the misty air on your skin. Parking is limited, but there’s a shuttle from the National Seashore’s Salt Pond Visitor Center, just off of Route 6. Bring an umbrella, a cooler of food and drinks and enjoy the day! Bonus: At low tide, you just may see seals sunning themselves.

A Cape Cod tradition for decades, Craigville Beach has been referred to as “world famous.” Bustling Craigville, with colorful umbrellas and coolers practically on top of one another, is not only great for people-watching, it’s the perfect beach for families and children, with its calm, shallow waters and bounty of shells. The Barnacle snack bar is right across the street. Park your beach chair here for the day and savor every moment. 64


JULY 2018

On Eastham’s bay side, First Encounter boasts beautiful sandbars and tidal flats with soft sand easy for walking. Kids love to find shells and dig for crabs. If you walk all the way to the south of this beach peninsula, you’ll find yourself at the mouth of Herring River, a lovely area to explore. First Encounter faces west—think stellar sunsets.

With dazzling views of the Centerville River and surrounding sandy spots, Dowses has been a family tradition for generations. To the north of the parking lot is the river bank, where kids love finding shells, rocks and crabs. Facing south is a jetty where locals like to fish. There’s even a newly built handicap accessible pier for fishing or just contemplating the amazing views.

At the very end of Hyannis’ bustling Ocean Street, the white sands of Kalmus beckon visitors to relax. The beach is L-shaped, with one side overlooking Hyannis Harbor and the other side facing Lewis Bay. Watch the ferries come and go between Hyannis and Nantucket or the Vineyard. A jetty juts out from the point of the L, and both sides of the beach are long and perfect for walking. Windsurfers flock here in the spring, summer and fall.

JULY 2018 



If you’re seeing sandbars crested over calm blue waters everywhere you look, you must be in Chatham. Facing the sandy North Beach Island, Lighthouse Beach is located right outside of the downtown area, slightly south of Chatham Bars Inn. The scenic beach sits below Chatham Light, an active lighthouse at the Coast Guard Station that aids in the navigation of Chatham waters. Lighthouse Beach is known for its strong currents and shark sightings.

Considered by many to be one of the most scenic beaches in Dennis, Mayflower has long attracted visitors in search of tidal flats and stunning sunsets. At low tide, walk out nearly a mile. The low tide also brings tidal pools galore—great for the kids. A scenic boardwalk for easy access stretches from the parking lot, over the dunes and to the beach.

Surf’s up! Just hearing the name Nauset evokes images of surfers shredding waves. But even if hanging ten isn’t your thing, mile and miles of white sand beckon in either direction. It’s easy to find a quiet place to sit and sunbathe. Or, take a stroll on one of the boardwalks through the dunes. 66


JULY 2018

This longtime Falmouth favorite never disappoints. With Falmouth Cliffs to the south and a long stretch of beach to the north, Old Silver has calm waters and soft sand—great for walking—and super sunsets. Kids love boogie-boarding at high tide, and at low tide, walk out on an endless sandbar with minimal rocks and shells. Parking can be a challenge, so get there early or later in the day. Bonus: There’s a snack bar and outdoor showers.

As the name implies, this beach sits at the mouth of Paine’s Creek, and kids love to explore its nooks and crannies, especially at low tide. It also makes for a uniquely picturesque landscape. Like its companion beaches here on the Cape’s bay side, tidal flats stretch out seemingly forever.

JULY 2018 



Cape Codders be proud—Race Point was recently voted by Trip Advisor as one of the Top 25 beaches in the country (up there with Florida and Hawaii). Pack your cooler and forget your worries. At the tip of the National Seashore, the waters here are a little faster, with an undertow, so take heed. Did someone say whales? You’ll see them spouting or breaching not too far from shore. For the adventurous: Explore bike paths and dune shacks.

Named for its position at the mouth of Red River, which meanders through Harwich to the ocean, the beach faces south and is perfect for families and walking. It’s been called small and quaint, but it’s still a good stretch of beach, with several jetties and a boat ramp at the end of the parking lot. The popular Beach Day in September features hay rides, a sandsculpting contest, live music and a bonfire.

The Cape’s premier four-wheeling beach, Sandy Neck, is synonymous with dunes. Permitted ORVs can travel almost to the end of the neck, though the town asks visitors to stay within allocated boundaries, as Sandy Neck is designated an area of critical environmental concern. There are, however, designated hiking trails for visitors who wish to explore the dunes, forest and marsh.

Yarmouth’s largest and most popular beach—for good reason. The nearly one-mile-long stretch of white sand dazzles the senses. It has calm seas, perfect for families with kids and floats, but it’s big enough to have your own personal space. There is also a good snack bar and ample parking!

Descend some stairs from the parking lot to the sandy shores of South Cape Beach, a long stretch in either direction—perfect for a long walk. Part of the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, the area consists of 2,800 acres of land and water for conservation. Many walking trails begin at South Cape and lead through pine forests.

We love long stretches of beach for walking, and West Dennis Beach fits the bill since it spans a little over a mile. The parking lot is just about as long as the beach, so you don’t have to walk too far to the sand. Situated on a long peninsula, walk to the west and you’ll end up at the mouth of Bass River. Popular for windsurfing and flying kites. Extra bonus: Swings for the kids.

JULY 2018 




A unique landscape worth the 10-minute walk from the parking lot, this beach is famous for its sunsets, red cliffs and historic lighthouse. Below the clay cliffs is Jungle Beach, one of the few nude beaches left in the U.S.

With crashing waves, turquoise water and eternal white sands, Madaket sits on the southernmost end of Nantucket’s west coast—the sunset here is the perfect way to end your day.

It’s a small beach, but noteworthy for its unique scenery. Situated on the enclosed Phinneys Harbor, it looks out over the Bourne entrance to the Cape Cod Canal and the scenic Monument Beach Marina.

Artists Claudia del Castillo and Vinnie Arnone, with their beloved dog, Lupe, can often be found in their sunroom—or “fun room”— decorated with treasures from Cape Cod and Puerto Rico, as well as retro souvenirs, such as a “Jaws” poster.



JULY 2018


own a quiet street in Bourne, along the banks of the Cape Cod Canal, illustrator Vinnie Arnone and his wife, Claudia del Castillo, a graphic designer, are constantly creating works of art. They can be found sketching, designing logos for companies, working on projects to support local causes or tackling home renovation projects. Arnone works in one little corner of their sunroom decorated with treasures and gems from Puerto Rico and the Cape, while graphic designer Del Castillo works in her back office. Their dog, Lupe, is involved in almost everything they do, from daily Instagram posts to walks along the canal. For the creative couple, inspiration can be found right at their doorstep in the form of birds, wildlife, flowers and beautiful views of the canal and the Bourne Bridge. Once upon a time, they commuted an hour each way to their jobs at Reebok’s headquarters in Canton. Today, their farthest commute is to each other’s office in their roughly 1,200-square-foot bungalow. On a recent spring day, the founder of Cabo Cado and his wife discussed life along the canal, working in the corporate world, their latest book, “The ABC’s of Cape Cod,” and projects here and in Puerto Rico that have brought meaning to their lives. More than six years ago, when Arnone’s graphic design job at Reebok was phased out, he did some soul searching. It was at this time he launched Cabo Cado, which means Cape Cod in Spanglish. If you’re not familiar with the name, you’ve likely seen the whimsical and colorful drawings of Cape Cod,

Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket on ethically made tote bags, decorative throw pillows, bandanas and koozies. Arnone’s artwork can also be seen on electrical boxes near the Hyannis Inn and Aselton Park on Main Street in Hyannis. If you dine at The Lobster Trap in Bourne, you’ll enjoy the view of his colorful nautical flags on a bridge behind the restaurant. Although Arnone continues to create his pillows, postcards and pouches, he says his work is constantly changing and evolving. He recently aligned himself with “feel-good” organizations, such as the National Marine Life Center in Buzzards Bay. Arnone cares deeply about the environment and canal conservation, and maintains his own lobster traps in the canal, so it’s not surprising that “The ABC’s of Cape Cod,” focuses on subject matter near and dear to his heart. The project began as a series of daily sketches representing life on the banks of the canal. The book is a fun field guide to local flora and fauna and features colorful Sharpie sketches of plants, animals and sea life. The last page, dedicated to the National Marine Life Center, features drawings of a seal and sea turtle. Fifteen percent of every book sale is donated to the center.

Arnone creates his illustrations on a desk, topped with a map of Bourne, handmade by his father.

JULY 2018 



“The ABC’s of Cape Cod,” a fun field guide by Vinnie Arnone, features colorful illustrations of local plants, animals and sea life. Pictured at bottom: Arnone illustrated Cape Cod Magazine’s cover in 2013.

Arnone worked on the field guide with his good friend Jon Dumais, a U.S Army Corps of Engineers Park Ranger, to brainstorm flora and fauna that would correspond to each letter of the alphabet. A is for Aster, B is for Blue Crab, C is for Cod and so on. Arnone’s wife, Del Castillo, a graphic designer and branding expert for local companies like The Local Juice, Pizza Barbone and The West End, helped Arnone produce the book of his sketches, printed by Sunderland Printing in Hyannis. “We’ll be walking along the canal and Vinnie will say, ‘Oh that’s a Rosa Rugosa,’” says Del Castillo. When did he become little Vinnie-pedia?” she asks, with a laugh. Throughout the guide, a fun fact and the word’s Latin name appear next to each Sharpie drawing. For instance, cod is Gadus Morhua in Latin and Cape “Cod” was named in 1602 for all of the cod found here. “I wanted to bring a story element into it,” says Arnone, “so at the end of the day, it’s not just a pretty picture.” Currently, the book is in its second printing of 500 copies. “My hope is that a parent will go through this with their child and will be learning something also.” If you follow Cabo Cado on Instagram, it’s instantly apparent they have a deep love for Puerto Rico. The couple has strong ties to the area since Del Castillo grew up there and her entire family still lives in San Juan. They adopted their dog, Lupita (a celebrity Instagram dog with her own hashtag #LoveLaLupe), through the Sato Project—Sato means mutt in Spanish—which rescues abandoned and abused dogs. Arnone donates a portion of his merchandise’s profits, including Lupe’s signature red bandana that he designed, to the Sato Project. After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, Arnone created T-shirts for a group called United for Puerto Rico and donates 100 percent of the proceeds to this organization. 76


His fundraising efforts in Puerto Rico inspired him to support local causes, including drawing sketches for the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy’s Instagram page. “Getting behind organizations like this opened my eyes to the feelgood nature of trying to lend help to projects that are important to you.” Ironically, Arnone says one of his biggest influences during his career was working as a graphic designer for Old Navy in New York City, “which turned out to be the best job ever. It’s where I honed my skillset,” he says. “The leader of the company at the time was always asking, ‘What’s the story?’ ‘What’s the emotional connection with the consumer?’” Fun and accessible, the main narrative at Old Navy, carries through to Arnone’s work today. Arnone says The Lobster Trap restaurant was the first place to carry his merchandise. He credits community advocate/entrepreneur Jen Villa for opening even more doors for him through her Little Beach Gallery and Love Live Local events. Arnone created the logo for Love Live Local, which launched around the same time as Cabo Cado. “The Love Live Local fest comes about and we meet all of these likeminded individuals, people that are makers and creators,” says Del Castillo. “When I started doing Cabo Cado, I met people like Jen and realized there was this whole community on the Summer’s Bes Cape that was super excitBeach Reads t 15 Famous People from the Cape ing,” says Arnone. “In New York City, you could be a small fish in a big pond. I felt like on the Cape, the pond was much smaller. I feel like I have a voice and an impact.” ExcE rpts of

Toward the western end of downtown Hyannis, where Main Street diverges into two one-way avenues, you will find a relaxed retail space called the LoveLocal Collective. It is the culmination of a decades-long friendship between Jen Villa and Amanda Converse. The Little Beach Gallery and Shift Eco Boutique were next-door neighbors that have now become roommates. “A business is always trying to cut overhead in ways that make sense, but even more important is the chance to refresh,” says Converse. “It keeps both the 80


consumer and retailer engaged.” The South Street location also houses Devinto clothing, The Local Juice (which also opens up onto Potter Avenue) and the office for the local guidebook and festival enterprise, Love Live Local. Kate Sheehan, who co-founded Love Live Local with Villa and Converse, feels the new collective space aligns well with their mission. “It makes the customer’s experience more relational than transactional,” says Sheehan. “Each of the businesses can grow organically and not worry about traditional retail rules.”

JULY 2018

Clothing designer Aiste Zitnikaite, Amanda Converse and Jen Villa are now under one roof called the LoveLocal Collective in Hyannis. The new location houses Shift Eco Boutique, Devinto clothing, The Little Beach Gallery and The Local Juice. Shift and The Little Beach Gallery were once next-door neighbors.

Once the group decided the move was the right one for everyone involved, they acted quickly to reinterpret the space. Villa, who owns the building, had two interior walls removed, which created enough room for Aiste Zitnikaite to work onsite creating her fashion lines for Devinto, and for The Local Juice (co-founded by Villa with dietician Nicole Cormier) to have a more accessible entry into the shopping area. “We’re having fun with the collaborative space,” says

Villa. “And the beautiful thing about the new setup is sharing schedules and finances between the three of us.” For both she and Converse, the consolidation also gave them a chance to refine their inventory. “Scaling back gave me the ideal situation of selling exactly what I love,” says Converse, “and what people connect to the most.” LoveLocal Collective, 539 South St., Hyannis, also on Facebook

Sometimes you need a bit more space, sometimes a bit less. This was true for Melissa Cox and Bridget Cahill, who swapped shops in Dennis Village earlier this spring. Cox’s Scout Vintage Home & Garden, which features unique items from France as well as locally sourced goods, was bursting at its seams in the approximately 400-square-foot space at 776 Route 6A. Cahill’s partnership in the retail and design shop Deep Blue—located just several hundred yards east—was coming to a close in December when the idea of exchanging locations first came up. “I was heading into my fifth year at Scout, when I went 82


over to Deep Blue to wish them a Merry Christmas,” says Cox. “I mentioned to them that I really needed more space, and they said, ’Wanna trade?’” “The old Scout location was actually what inspired Amy and me to become shop owners in the first place,” says Cahill, referring to her former Deep Blue partner, Amy Mason. “Once that dreamy little space was available, I just knew I had to do it.” Cahill named her new store Seaside Design Studio and Shop, after the bathroom remodeling and design company she has owned for 15 years. She refinished the interior walls and built a large cabinet with a soapstone

JULY 2018

Melissa Cox and Bridget Cahill traded spaces over the spring. Cox, who owns Scout Vintage Home & Garden, was looking for a bigger space and Cahill was seeking a smaller, more manageable space. Cahill changed the name of her Deep Blue store to Seaside Design Studio and Shop. At far left, Scout sells unique items from France, while Seaside Design, above, offers local products, such as pottery and jewelry.

top to serve as a combination checkout counter and design consultation surface. “All the local products I sell—pottery, jewelry, art—tie into my coastal farmhouse aesthetic,” says Cahill. “I’m so happy here. This is a manageable retail space that feels really cohesive with my design services.” Cox had the two levels of the old barn at 800 Main St. repainted in a color palette of soft greens, grays and blues. “A little panic set in on how to fill up 1,400 square feet,” she says, with a laugh, “but the colors had a calming effect and bringing in vintage items from storage that I had never displayed before made me really happy.” She added other

products, such as imported soaps and linens, to complete her signature French farmhouse theme. “I want customers to feel like they are meandering through a marketplace,” says Cox. “I believe it is very important to be unique and I strive to scout for things that you won’t see everywhere.” Seaside Design Studio and Shop, 776 Main St., Dennis, Route 6A, 508-385-3410, also on Facebook Scout Vintage Home & Garden, 800 Main St., Route 6A, Dennis, 508-385-4545,

There has been a lot of activity at the 400 block of Main Street in Chatham over the past several months. The venerable M. Smith and Company Social Stationers merged with Frances Johnston Boutique to create Johnston & Smith. Meanwhile, Chatham Thread Works jumped next door to take up residence in the space vacated by M. Smith. “It was kismet,” says Beth Ryan, who, along with husband Terry, is the owner of Chatham Thread Works, a monogramming boutique. “We lucked out that Jane was moving because we love this space, which is about double the size of our old store.” Terry’s machine shop at the back of the building where he does embossing and monogramming of the store’s mer84


chandise, is now directly accessible to the front of the store. The additional square footage will also allow the husband-and-wife team, who opened the store a few years after moving to the Cape full time in 2009, to expand their product inventory. “We will now monogram vinyl and acrylics,” says Beth. “This space is perfect for who we are and what we do. Plus, by only moving a door down, everyone can still find us!” For Jane Leonard, the building at 400 Main St. has been home for 20 years. She bought her company from her employer, the original owner M. Smith, and has occupied several different spaces in the structure over the years. But merging with Frances Johnston, whose women’s and chil-

dren’s clothing boutique has been on site for a decade, is a wonderful solution for the experienced social stationer. “We both wanted the freedom of a shared space,” says Leonard. “Now if I’m not here, Fran knows what I do and can show clients invitation proofs or paper samples.” “We fit together so well, as both of our lines are classics,” says Johnston. “It is also more profitable, with twice the income and only one rent.” To accommodate Leonard’s consultations, they carved a private room out of Johnston’s retail space. An added benefit is that visitors will discover both of the women’s products and services.

“Somebody who would have only come into her store now sees my side of the business,” says Leonard. “And the opposite, too,” adds Johnston. “The mothers of the brides see my children’s section and start planning ahead for when they will be grandmothers!” Chatham Thread Works, 400 Main St., 508-348-5179, Johnston & Smith, 400 Main St., 508-945-9300/508-945-4734

BY CAROL K. DUMAS PHOTOS COURTESY OF HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF CAPE COD Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod’s mission to build affordable homes for local families with a critical housing need could not have been accomplished without the support of individuals, businesses, congregations, schools and civic groups. One of those steadfast business partners over the years has been Shepley Wood Products. The Hyannis-based company has been supplying a wide range of materials and services to building professionals for 40 years. Among its array of products are windows, doors, flooring, decking, moulding, millwork, roofing, siding and framing lumber. The nature of Shepley’s business, as well as its charitable giving mission, is a perfect fit with Habitat’s goals to provide affordable housing on the Cape, says its president, Tony Shepley. “We first learned about Habitat over a decade ago at an event called a Builders Breakfast,” he recalls. “We were invited to hear about their mission and we were sold on it that very day! We have always believed that quality, affordable housing should be available to everyone. Partnering with Habitat just makes sense. We have the expertise and the relationships to help Habitat achieve their mission.” The need for affordable, local housing is great here because housing prices are 10 percent higher on Cape Cod than elsewhere in Massachusetts, and wages are 35 percent lower, according to Vicki Goldsmith, executive director



JULY 2018

Shepley Wood Products was among building professionals involved in the construction of this one-family home on Paul Hush Way in Brewster.

of Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod, which was established in 1989 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Habitat depends on forging good relationships with businesses to make their projects financially feasible. Shepley dedicates a sales team to Habitat, which works with the supply partners. “Shepley contributes with some direct donations and discounts to our homes, but also very significantly, they work very assertively with their suppliers to garner donations for each of the ‘BLITZ builds,’” notes Goldsmith. (BLITZ is the name given to a house built in one week.) But the company goes beyond supplying lumber and other materials in supporting Habitat. “We’ve had crews swinging hammers and painting and also cooking up hamburgers at the job site,” says Shepley. Recently, Shepley reached out to thank the volunteers who make Habitat’s efforts possible by delivering picnic tables and Shepley T-shirts, sweatshirts and hats to a Habitat build in Truro. “The staff and volunteers at Habitat work so hard to build these beautiful homes, we try to go the extra mile to make their job sites as comfortable as possible,” says Shepley. Goldsmith also appreciates Shepley’s strong financial support over the years for events includ-

ing Habitat’s annual meeting and its Hook for Homes fishing derby, and behind the scenes’ donations such as storage, transporting materials donated by others, donating to Habitat’s ReStore, participating in events or lending Tony Shepley’s support. Since its inception in 1989, Habitat for Humanity Cape Cod has constructed 127 affordable homes, at least one in every one of the 15 towns of the Cape, and Shepley Wood Products has been proud to have been involved in every project. One of the most challenging and exciting projects is the BLITZ build sponsored by the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Cape Cod. This involves building a house in one week, rather than several months. Last year, hundreds of building professionals turned out to construct a home on Paul Hush Way in Brewster.

says Shepley. “It’s really something to witness and we’re so happy to be a part of it. We work with Andersen to provide the windows for these projects and applaud our Andersen rep, Brian Harding, for harkening back to his framing days to help raise these homes in just seven days.” “It’s always fun to work side by side with a future homeowner, building the house that will become their home,” Shepley muses. “We’re impressed with the work Habitat has done on the Cape, surpassing 100 homes. The homes are well-built and energy efficient so utility and maintenance costs remain low. Affordable housing is essential to a healthy and vibrant community and Habitat is committed to providing opportunities for young people and families to stay and thrive on Cape Cod. We see our partnership with Habitat lasting for a very long time. We look forward to celebrating their 200th home alongside them.”

“Think about it: these are building professionals that are typically competing with each other, that come together to build an entire house from start to finish in one week!” 88

The Joy of Baking


“I get to open the door every morning and turn around the open sign and know that it’s mine,” says Sara Sneed, owner of The Bashful Tarte bakery. Formerly located inside Mom & Pops Burgers in Chatham, The Bashful Tarte recently opened its doors in a newly renovated and charming space near Station Avenue in South Yarmouth. The bakery offers fresh muffins, scones and cinnamon popovers daily as well as cupcakes, specialty pies and custom cakes. Sneed, a trained opera singer who performs in plays and musicals across the Cape, practices her lines while she begins baking every day at 5 a.m. She is currently preparing for her role as Aldonza in “Man of La Mancha” at the Cotuit Center for the Arts. Sneed says she feels fortunate to have found such a welcoming spot surrounded by local businesses. With bistro style tables inside and out, you can sit and enjoy luscious lemon bars, chocolate peanut butter bombe cakes, red velvet crinkle cookies and local Beanstock coffee brewed daily. A quote from David Bowie on display in a framed chalkboard on the wall sums up things perfectly: “I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I can promise you it won’t be boring.” The Bashful Tarte is certainly a classy and exciting addition to the neighborhood. —Lisa Leigh Connors The Bashful Tarte, 23S White’s Path, South Yarmouth, 508-619-3938, the The bakery also offers sandwiches, fresh salads, quiche (both meat and vegetarian), frittatas and free Wi-Fi. Sara Sneed, owner of The Bashful Tarte, drizzles chocolate over her chocolate peanut butter bombe cake. At right, freshly baked blueberry muffins.

From left, clockwise: Artichokes grow on a small plot outside Ceraldi restaurant in Wellfleet; a Wellfleet oyster with garden horseradish foam and Surrey Farm espelette pepper; Surrey Farm beet soup with crème fraîche, garden herbs and flower petals; and meals are served on clay plates made by chef Michael Ceraldi.

Ceraldi Fosters Community Through Food

The chef and owner of the Wellfleet restaurant, now in his fifth season, changes his menu daily based on what’s available from local farms.

On opening day at the Wellfleet Farmers Market, chef Michael Ceraldi buys nettles from farmer Ron Backer, who runs Surrey Farms in Brewster. Nettles, or stinging nettles, grow wild on the Cape and have tiny hollow hairs on their leaves that sting if you rub against them. They’re one of the most nutrient-rich greens you can eat, says the chef, even more so than spinach. Once they’re steamed, he says reassuringly, the sting goes away. Next, he buys honey and rhubarb from Dave Dewitt of Dave’s Greens in Truro and purchases six dozen eggs from Victoria Pecoraro, who runs a oneacre farm in Wellfleet. It’s well known that Ceraldi sources all of his restau92


rant’s ingredients from local farms. His seven-course, prix-fixe menu varies from day to day, depending on what’s available. People call him crazy for switching up the menu so often, but since local farms produce crops in small quantities, it’s a necessity. “I like to talk about it in terms of the agricultural food cycle,” he says. “We don’t just take, we also give back.” Vegetable scraps, for example, go back to the chickens who then provide eggs to the restaurant. “It’s a beautiful thing to highlight local farmers,” says Jesse, Ceraldi’s wife. The Ceraldis have three children— Hugo, 9, Violette, 7, and Arielle, 2, who often help pick the bounty from the small plot outside the restaurant, where

strawberries, fennel and artichokes grow. At the 40-seat restaurant’s opening night in May, bartender Andy Jameson welcomes me with a glass of Prosecco. Light jazz plays over the speakers and candles glow on each table. Next, Ceraldi welcomes diners to his fifth season and describes the courses—from the ingredients’ sources to their preparation. (If diners have dietary restrictions, Ceraldi makes special accommodations for them in advance.) Each course is accompanied by one of the restaurant’s homemade non-alcoholic beverages, a house wine or a reserve wine. While the menu changes every day, one thing remains consistent: the first course is always a Lucky Lips Loagy Bay oyster, but prepared differently each time. Ceraldi says these oysters have a sweeter, less briny taste because they are grown in brackish waters. It’s the sweetest oyster I’ve ever tasted. Second, an assortment of pancetta and coppa (Italian sausage that Ceraldi cured him-

self over the winter), wild ramp and a green onion, which grows wild only this time of year, is served on a slab of stone. The next several courses flowed beautifully: a bed of lettuce from Longnook Meadows Farm in Truro sprinkled with pink pepper; calamari and agrodolce sauce served with garden parsley mashed potatoes; and homemade alla chitarra pasta infused with the nettles Ceraldi bought earlier that day. Hillside Farm chopped pork from Truro, paired with a sauce made from Truro Vineyards rum, is served on rustic clay plates handmade by the chef. For dessert, a Lavender Lady tart comes topped with candied rhubarb from Dave’s Greens in Truro. I’m reminded of our excursion to the farmers market that morning, having watched Ceraldi purchase the rhubarb stalks. As I finish my dessert, I ponder the fact that so many people have come together through his preparation of locally grown food. “Community is strengthened by forging these connections,” he says.

The Royal Treatment

Hungry for a unique experience, as well as a regally delicious bite to eat? Pop in to Pop + Dutch, where owners Sean Gardner and Rebecca Orchant offer everything needed for a royally grand day at the beach, from a creative array of homemade sandwiches to Cape Cod Potato Chips and bottled sodas. Located in the space that once housed the Provincetown General Store and named after Gardner’s grandparents (his grandmother nicknamed herself “Dutchess” and wore elbow-length white gloves), the Pop + Dutch vibe is friendly, funky and nostalgic. Start your day with a tasty made-to-order breakfast sandwich or an “Oh You Fancy, Huh” (smashed avocado, lemon, chili flake and sea salt on seven-grain toast). If you’re up and at ’em early, enjoy their legendary and oh-so-buttery buttermilk biscuits (served with sorghum molasses, housemade jam or spicy pimento cheese—they sell out fast!). And for lunch? “Everyone’s favorite is the Agent Dale Cooper: a turkey, avocado, cheddar situation,” says Orchant. “We make it special with our own pickled shallots.” Also not to be missed: the Danny DeVito (roasted mushrooms, zucchini, artichokes, provolone,

hoagie relish, arugula and red onion on ciabatta) and the Gator McKlusky (green goddess chicken salad, tomato and arugula on brioche). Now, where are my white gloves? —Marjorie Naylor Pitts Pop + Dutch, 147 Commercial St., Provincetown, 774-538-6472, and @popanddutch on Instagram.

What Your Money Can Buy The town of Yarmouth has something for everyone: historic sea captains’ homes along Route 6A in Yarmouth Port, touristy shops on Route 28 in West Yarmouth, and Bass River (Smuggler’s Beach) in South Yarmouth—a boater’s playground. The icing on the cake is luxury living on Great Island, a private island in West Yarmouth consisting of just 36 homes in a gated community. Greg “Marty” Martin and Sarah Lapsley of Kinlin Grover (Team Martin Lapsley) in Yarmouth Port know the area well. They have lived in Yarmouth since 2012 and

$400,000 and under This price range will get you a threebedroom, two bath, perhaps 1,500 to 1,700-square-foot home with a garage, on about a quarter or third of an acre, in a desirable neighborhood. A quick drive to the beach. “At the lower end of this,” says Martin, “you get a fixer-upper—maybe 1,000 square feet, a traditional ranch. Or, you could find something very small, say 800 square feet, but all updated,” he says. Many homes in this price range are located in central Yarmouth, between Routes 28 and 6A.


just welcomed their first baby in March. Lapsley grew up spending summers on the Cape, and her parents, Greg and Donna Lapsley, also work for Kinlin Grover in Yarmouth Port and own an antique home on 6A. “We love helping people on a daily basis, either in finding their dream home or selling,” says Lapsley. Here’s a snapshot of what your money can buy in Yarmouth, according to Team Martin-Lapsley, Kinlin Grover.

$400,000-$700,000 Typical in this price range is a fourbedroom, three-bath home with a large-ish garage. “On the higher end, you’ll find a mostly, if not an allupdated home, with granite,” says Lapsley. “You’ll also have more living space,” she adds, including perhaps a fourth bedroom or other livable, usable space. “Homes on the lower end may need a thing or two,” she says. “If you wanted a smaller home, [at this price] you may get closer to the water.”

$700,000-$1 million “On the north side, in Yarmouth Port, you can get a historic home on 6A or close to 6A, possibly a sea captain’s home and a marsh view,” says Martin. Conversely, on the south side, closer to a million, you can possibly get a view of water, but not necessarily on the water. “There’s lots of tourist attractions here, as well as gorgeous beaches,” he says. “There are also places in the center of Yarmouth, near Follins Pond, where you could find a house on the water, possibly with a dock,” adds Martin.

$1 million+ For $1 million and over, you can buy a larger, more updated historic home on 6A, or one with a marsh view. On the south side, you could find a home on Bass River or Great Island, with beach access or a dock. “As you get into these higher-priced homes,” says Lapsley, “you are more likely to get on the water with beach access.” Team Martin-Lapsley, Kinlin Grover, 927 Route 6A, Yarmouth Port, 508-331-1404 (Sarah) or 508-505-7370 (Marty). 102

Sweet Memories PHOTOGRAPHY BY SCOTT COOK For Sandwich resident Scott Cook, sweet pea flowers are especially close to his heart. “I lost my wonderful mother, Rita, four years ago, and this was her favorite flower growing up as a little girl on the family cotton farm in Mississippi. I planted these in her honor,” says Cook. He plants the seeds in early spring along two 6-foot-high trellises made of heavy cotton cording he built himself. The soil preparation is important, says Cook, but sweet peas are not difficult to maintain. One tip: Soaking the 104


seeds overnight seems to help in the success rate of the seed because of its hard outer-coating. The germination, however, can be a bit tricky, says Cook, not knowing what weather surprises lie ahead after planting the seeds. “My mother was a splendid gardener, flower designer and loved antiques,” says the local gardener. “These interests are among the gifts I treasure from her, along with her love of antiques. I love collecting old garden tools, some made and forged by hand.”
