Hyannis, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA


Learning to sail in the waters of Hyannis harbor is a rite of passage for some fortunate New England youth.

The ultimate in recycling - here's a great practical and artistic use for a rowboat that has finished its life at sea.

In case you've ever wondered where all the marker buoy floats attached to lobster traps and crab pots come from - here is the secret - they are grown in gardens like this one at Hyannis harbor. These marker buoys are members of the species Scirpus lacustris, commonly called "bulrushes," a grasslike cyperaceous marsh/wetland plant. Selective genetic breeding now produces different colored and striped heads suitable for differentiating among traps. (Since you're reading this on the internet it must be true, right?)

I'm not telling who owns this boat but, having this much power on such a small boat says something about a particular physical attribute of its male owner - it's either way too big or way too small........
