Summer Heaven – On The Water Off of Woods Hole

Written by Brian Tarcy

ON A BOAT OFF OF WOODS HOLE – This is our version of paradise. All of the really popular religions have some type of heaven that never sounds as good as a summer afternoon on a little boat off of Woods Hole.

Heaven on a boat off of Woods Hole

We believe in Cape Cod.

And our version of heaven in this Cape Cod-based religion is a sun-splashed afternoon looking for invisible fish, and then scanning Nobska Lighthouse and the Woods Hole architectural wonder that is the Airplane House from the perspective of Devil’s Foot Island.

On the water on a perfect summer day. Off of Woods Hole.

Cape Cod is in the details.

Getting a close-up pass-by of the research vessel, the Atlantis, was an extra bonus.

Nothing like this appears in the marketing brochures of other heavens.
