Get your Fall Submissions Finished!

Seems odd to post about Fall when we're still in the Dog Days of Summer.

But if you've pledged an article for the Fall issue, you should be working on that - and almost finished with it!
Deadline for article submissions is August 1st.

In the meantime, Enjoy July!

Mermaid Book Signing at the Whydah Pirate Museum in Provincetown

Mermaids and Pirates go together like...well, mermaids and Cape Cod! A perfect combination for summer reading fun!

Monday July 7th from noon to 3 p.m. is the first official book signing for book 2 of the Mermaids of Cape Cod series! (Copies of the first book on hand for signing and purchase as well!)

Katie will be traveling to P-town, out at the very tip of Cape Cod, to the famous pirate museum. She had two wonderful book signings there last summer and is hoping for a few more this summer! If you're looking for something fun to do on Monday, head out to Provincetown and splash down on MacMillan Wharf!
Museum details and location:
The Whydah Pirate Museum
16 MacMillan Wharf, Box 493

From the Museum's website:
Commanded by the famed pirate Sam Bellamy, the Whydah was wrecked off Wellfleet in 1717, taking with her the treasures of fifty plundered ships.
According to Cape Cod legend, Bellamy was returning to his lady-love, Maria Hallett, the “Witch of Wellfleet”, when his ship met disaster in one of the worst storms to strike the eastern seaboard.
Only two men of 146 made it to the beach alive, making the Whydah wreck the worst ever on the shores of the Cape.
Bellamy’s loss was history’s gain, however, as the contents of his once-proud flagship represent a unique look into the lives of the pirates, and an unprecedented cross-cultural sampling of treasures from the world of the 18th century.
Discovered by underwater explorer Barry Clifford, this archaeological shipwreck recovery project has been named a National Geographic Society “Special Event”, and our Provincetown Museum is the headquarters for our ongoing underwater archaeological missions.

Happy Independence Day!!!

There may be a hurricane charging up the East Coast but here on Cape Cod we are still planning on celebrating America's birthday in style. Whether you typically join the crowds at your local beach to take in the fireworks, or avoid the gridlocked roads for the safety of your own back yard - don't let a little rain in the forecast dampen your spirits. 

It's probably going to be an overnight event here anyway, so chins up, there are plenty of fun events to keep you entertained this weekend! Here's a link to a list of events courtesy of the Cape Cod Times.

Let us know how YOU celebrate this weekend. We'd love to hear your stories and see your photographs both here and on our CWO Facebook page.

We are New Englanders, after all, and that means the party goes on - rain or shine!

Wishing you a very safe and happy 4th of July weekend,

Your CWO Team :)
