Day Trippin’ – Woods Hole

Oh my gosh, a picture on the street with people. There have not been many of these since March.

Woods Hole is a village on Cape Cod. It’s where you can take a ferry to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket. It’s also home to Woods Hole Oceanographic Instute and the Marine Bilogy Laboratory. It’s quircky with all of the people passing through and what looks like university buildings among the salt box architecture of the Cape.

Woods Hole has a couple of coffee shops and some nice restaurants to grab a bite before taking the ferry.
This is Eel Pond, a small harbor. You can see the buldings from the institute and laboratory in the background.
This building for the Marine Biology Lab looks like it belongs on a university campus.
People tend to hang out on the drawbridge. The little shack to their right is the control booth for the bridge and the man in the orange vest is the bridgekeeper.
Bridge up!
With limited parking, bikes are a great way to get around. I biked here from my parent’s home.

    Your remark about the architectural contrast is very true. We always think of Cape Cod as a resort, with casual clothes, but there are also more serious sides.

      Yes. There is a serious sides. Besides the institute, there are commercial fishermen, marinas, boat yards, etc. A lot of people make their living servicing eitehr the tourism industry or working on people’s summuer homes.

    A photo shoot later in the day when the rest of the world is awake? I tease because I’m just like you. I prefer to be out first thing in the morning too. What a beautiful town! I like the shot that shows the bridge up and the biker crossing the race line. Nice work! Happy Saturday friend!

      Thank you, Sandra. I know we are both early morning risers. But I had to go later if I wanted people in my shots. Otherwise, it’s just me and the birds. Have a great day.

        I’m glad you showed up later because the town looks alive and bustling. I like seeing the pedestrians and the work truck. Well done! I hope you have a great day too!

    I love your caption seeing people on the street.. and yes, it’s really amazing to see them so many back on the streets again.. not much of them since the lockdown. I haven’t been really going out yet as the cases here is still on the rise… so its a relief to see photos of everyone in WP including yours being able to go out and take some quiet stroll or walk around wherever you are..
