A Travellerspoint blog



The reasons we go to Chatham...photos of the harbor, photos of the hydraengas, photos of the lighthouse and the beach, a stroll through town so Denny can pick up matches from The Chatham Squire restaurant... and lunch at the Impudent Oyster. The town is packed with summer tourists.... more than I've ever seen it. We get very lucky and find a parking spot right on Main Street. Here is a photo tour of our Chatham day this year.


We stop for a few photos- at the shark exhibit in town.


Back at the house...Susan, Eugene, Harper and Landry arrive and "The Mack Gallery" is open for business. Prices are steep but these budding artists have talent. You can "strike a pose" and they will capture it with their markers. It's amazing. They are also the operators of the "Vanilla Pea Cafe" and start running your tab with every request. Can you say "Cha-ching." There's not much you can get for under $10. We explain to these two artists that we need to wait until the end of the week before we purchase any artwork... we will need our meager savings for things..like...you know......FOOD... ....before we start splurging on extras. They tell us that we'll be lucky if there's any art left for us to purchase.


Wine is served and Harper and Landry each enjoy the "Beach Beauty Cocktail" complete with umbrella. We sit, chat and laugh and try to fend off these aggressive businesswomen.....


....for a while, at least....
