We have already posted the top 10 most popular stories of Cape Cod Wave readers. These next 10 (+5) are our favorites from a year of Cape Cod Wave that did not make the list.
The top one, from the Wellfleet Oysterfest, is a music video. We soon realized we could make more than half the list music videos, because we found Cape Cod footage mixed really well with Cape Cod music this year. (Musicians, if you are interested, please contact us.)
So we decided this year to post our top 10 favorite stories that did not make the top 10 most popular + we added in 5 extra music videos of Cape Cod scenery featuring Cape Cod music.
