The Art Gallery Town

By Linda Tancs

In the restful enclave of Wellfleet, Massachusetts, life is good.  Located on the narrowest part of Cape Cod, it’s surrounded by beautiful beaches bayside and oceanside.  Hikers will find some of the best trails in the Cape Cod National Seashore, not to mention nature walks, workshops and classes available through the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.  These days it’s taken on particular renown as the art gallery town, bursting at the seams with galleries featuring local works.  And let’s not forget the internationally acclaimed Wellfleet oyster.  The annual OysterFest is this weekend.  Free shuttles will run to the town center from Newcomb’s Hollow Beach, White Crest Beach and LeCounts Hollow Beach (Maguire Landing).

Aw Shucks

By Linda Tancs

Do you know how to shuck an oyster?  The folks in Wellfleet, Massachusetts would be happy to show you during the annual OysterFest.  Contestants in the shuck-off competition can open 24 oysters in a matter of minutes, but aesthetics count, too.  May the best presenter win.
