The Red Chair has continued on its journey of a Better Way to Stay in Cape Cod and has arrived at The Captain’s Manor in in Falmouth. What a wonderful time visiting some of Cape Cod’s great landmarks including lovely Inns , museums, eateries, beaches, and quaint villages such as Falmouth Village’s main street.
What I found as we chaperoned the chair is that it is famous ! When we went over to the Queens Buyway shops a local bicycle rider yelled out “Is that THE red chair” and we were happy to reply it sure is! The next stop was Ben & Bill’s Chocolate emporium where one of the staff made a point of going to get the local paper and show the rest of her co-workers the article that had been written. I had no sooner arrived at Highfield Hall and was taking the chair out for its picture in the sunken garden when two of my favorite people from the Hall, Janet and Pat, came out and said they were just taking about the Red Chair the other day and saying wouldn’t it be great if it made a visit here. Off to the Visitor Center where the cry went out “The Red Chair is here”. My personal favorite was after taking some great shots over at the Nobska Lighthouse a gentlemen made a point of jogging over from across the street saying he just had to see what the fuss was about with THE Red Chair.
What a great morning for a walk. Decided to go to Woods Hole which is a 3.5 mile walk from the Inn. Although it was a bit overcast it did not seem to bother the ospreys and other critters out an about. One of the great things about a walk down to Woods Hole is that once you get there you can turn around and walk on back (after a treat at Pie in the Sky) or you can decide 3.5 miles was enough and hop on the Steamship Authority shuttle bus and hop a ride back to the parking lot just a short half mile stroll from the Inn. Guess what we did 🙂
We are excited to share progress on the window art being worked on by Robin Pierson for the Canopy room. As you will see by the pictures below, Robin has taken the original window and placed the antique style map of Cape Cod within the main panes. More pictures of progress should follow in the next couple of weeks.
The construction adventure continues! The projects of today are trim around the windows, doors etc. and stairway tread installation as well as hardwood flooring.
The weather has been beautiful the past couple of days here at The Captain’s Manor Inn which is helping us to get some important outdoor work completed on the new construction. The finishing touches are being done on the new main entrance stairs to the veranda and Kevin has been very busy creating the new brick patio at the base of the stair entrance. Needless to say his back and knees are a bit sore!
Hope you enjoy these pictures of the progess.
