Behind Main St

Fifty feet away from the gas station in the Center of town, I spied alot of folks fishing for free food on the other side of the railroad tracks. I even left a few out of this shot. High tide's good for running in the stripers n sea bass.

Pay no attention to that sign, n hope you don't have a quick run down off the bridge while you have a bite on the line. That dude had to cut his line when a fish took the line around a piling n got stuck.
On the other side of the narrows, are three other crowded fishing piers.

Hey, what kind of train runs through your village? And how often?

And did you know that in French to ask how often the train runs you would ask, "Le train passe tous les combiens?" I remember Dalton London, a college professor, stood there for about 15 minutes grilling us on that and nobody knew. Thus when he finally broke down and told us, I've never forgotten that phrase. He was a great teacher.

Same as in Grade 12, Mr. Creary also had us on the edge of our seats for the whole first class of the school year, before he finally revealed that history is all about "interpretation."

Hope your life is highly and irrevocably enriched today by those 2 tidbits, Snag. :)

Nice pics. Now I have a hankering for seafood!

Jannie, it's amazing the impact teachers have on us - and not necessarily in the ways they envisioned.

JanF, The Cape Cod Railroad, of course! It only comes thru a few times a week now, mostly carting garbage around about 5 am/pm ish.
At Xmas time, they do a Polar Express reading trip for the kids, very popular. In the simmer they may do more passenger trips again.
You May remember my old pics of the famous Railroad bridge over the Cape Cod Canal which raises up for ships n lowers for the train.
We're close to Edaville USA in Carver too, where I used to take the kids.
Yep, thanks. My teacher, David Daveaux, never, ever spoke English, even at coffee break- Mais, I've forgotten so much!

Talon, What's funny, is I don't eat seafood! Too many allergies. Also, I wish to conserve the dwindling fish supply.
I think it's interesting 20 years down the road, what the brain chooses to remember, n throw away!

Talon: Yes, forever and a day somr of those teacher memories stay with us.

Ooo, SnaggleTooth, the Cape Cod railroad. And "garbage?" Is that any way to speak about the riff-raff that rides it?


The Polar Express thing for Christmas sounds grand. Oh I do so love Christmas. Can't wait for it!

JanF, They have a limited number of passenger cars, n even fewer with heat in the winter. The Polar Express ride sold out of seats in less than a week, n was a big success, with the kids especially. Mentioning the Xmas thing before July is taboo...
Of course it's a blast when you have younger children, n when you have the bux to spend.
