Trick or Treat in Falmouth Village was celebrated in grand fashion with the 17th annual Trick or Treat stroll along Main Street on Saturday October 25th. Hundreds of youngsters and their parents came dressed for the occasions in costumes ranging from policemen and fireman to goblins, witches and beloved characters like Elsa of Frozen. We had parents dressed as superheros and sports figures as they escorted their little ones along the street. Restaurants and Retail shops alike offered up goodies to the trick or treaters.

Patches the firedog and Olivia as red riding hood led the parade down Main Street in Falmouth Village.

Eight Cousins Bookstore had Ladybug Girl and Sara the good witch to hand out fun pencils for their treat.

 

 

Thank you to the Falmouth Village Association for sponsoring such a family friendly and fun event!

Storm Quintus in Cape Cod

February 16, 2014 by Trish Robinson

Storm Quintus in Cape Cod was packed with heavy wet snow and strong gusty winds. It is always fun to head out all bundled up after the storm and get some snapshots. The photo collage below was taken as we headed out from The Captain’s Manor Inn to Main Street in Falmouth Village. We felt very fortunate to have dodged the bullet of most snow on the Cape which went to neighboring Sandwich with 15.5 inches and also to miss the heavy toll of power outages that hit Yarmouth with 25 percent of the town without power. During the height of Storm Quintus we were getting an inch an hour in Falmouth and down the Cape in Sandwich they were getting over 2 inches and hour.

This is the sixth winter storm for Cape Cod in 2014 which is certainly much more winter weather than we have had since we purchased the inn in 2010. The weather forecasters are predicting a dry and warmer than usual summer and right about now that sounds really good.

 

 

National Chocolate Month

February 1, 2014 by Trish Robinson

Ben and Bill's Chocolate Emporium store in Falmouth VIllageNational Chocolate Month is February and it is a time to celebrate for Ghelfi's Candies in Falmouth Villageall of us chocoholics! Pretty much a day does not go by that I don’t have a little bit of chocolate. We are lucky here in Falmouth, Cape Cod that just a short stroll down from The Captain’s Manor Inn on Main Street in Falmouth Village are two great places to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

You may stop in at Ben and Bill’s Chocolate Emporium or Ghelfi’s Candies or like many guests visit and sample both. At Ben and Bill’s many of our guests love the mocha chip ice cream which has the largest pieces of chocolate you can enjoy. A favorite of guests who frequent Ghelfi’s Chocolates are there different flavored salted caramels from milk chocolate to dark or white chocolate and even crème brulee.
You don’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day to search for that special chocolate treat any time this month will do. The healthy benefits of chocolate are being lauded in all sorts of magazines such as Women’s Health, and even the Wall Street Journal had a story.
Chocolate is even being talked about as a superfood. Of course for us chocoholics, National Chocolate Month is not even enough. So if you need a reason to justify why you are eating chocolate why not follow the national chocolate day calendar.
