The Oyster Shanty

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:46 am

Years ago, a small building that you see here served the community of Osterville fresh oysters farmed right below their sailboats.  The sea has always provided many things to the natives of the Cape, and it is as much a part of them as the smiles on their faces.  The wind and the sea.  The wind and the sea.  If you take the time, you can almost feel the ease with which the boat sails through the cut into the harbor, and as this was a simpler time, judging from the early 70’s station wagon, Roland Marsan, a beloved artist and Patty’s father, probably took this photograph during that era.  The Oyster Shanty is a McDonald’s now, I’m just kidding, but it has faded into history and like the buildings that adorn this magical place called Cape Cod, it behooves one to look a little closer at the structures that housed our history, and in doing so, uncovering the intentions of the time, perhaps even discovering reasons to preserve and persevere through troubled waters of late and realize that in coming together we can accomplish anything.  Peace M
