This image of Main Street Osterville was taken a few days ago after the snow we received. Although the town was originally named for the Oysters that are still dug right out of the bottom of the sea, the y was dropped from the name to what it is today–Osterville. The “Oyster Emporium” is a typical store on the strip, as high end customers still shop for treasures from local and world artists alike. As it is the “off season”, Main Street is fairly quiet on most mornings and that is just the way I like it. When summer comes, the population triples, as do the populations of many of the towns on the Cape, as well as the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. The energy of the town changes and with it, you must get up even earlier to find that peace that I equate with Cape Cod. So, on these winter mornings, I savor every moment, as spring will be here before you know it–with the vibrant colors of the Cape changing once again to the cobalt blue of the Hydraga’s that adorn the landscape of this blessed place.
