Bill Landolfi

September 10, 2016 by Beth Colt

Bill Landolfi has been a summer regular at Oysters Too for many years. He studied with the eminent Sascha Gorodnitski at the Julliard School, and that background allows him to blend a satisfying mixture of classical, popular and jazz standards. His repertoire includes many favorites from the 30’s right up to the present. Bill and his wife Marisa Sieiro, who also studied at Julliard with Mr. Gorodnatski, live in Falmouth during the summer, but maintain a very busy professional schedule for the remainder of the year in New York. They are the directors of the Sieiro-Landolfi Piano Studio which has trained many fine young pianists. Bill performs regularly at concerts and parties in the New York area.

A Woods Hole Farewell

September 10, 2016 by Julia Pearl

woods-hole-sunset

I have had the tremendous opportunity to adventure around Cape Cod all summer, while living in the quaint village of Woods Hole as the summer intern at the Woods Hole Inn. What a treat!

I came from a small town in Vermont, so upon arrival in early May, I felt instantly at home here. I am captivated by the ocean, and aspire to live near the water when I settle down someday. I have been spoiled, living right here overlooking Vineyard Sound with Buzzards Bay around the corner. 

Leaving this all behind will be very difficult. Not only am I going to miss the epic sunsets at the Knob, my lunch breaks swimming over at Stoney Beach, or my late night bites at Pie in the Sky, but the people within this town have also imprinted on me. My days here were nothing but beautiful skies and smiling faces.

The summer months in Woods Hole are always busy —  bustling with vacationers, summer visitors, locals, and of course all the science residents.  I loved gazing out my kitchen window on the top floor of the Woods Hole Inn, imagining the stories of each pedestrian below.  I saw families with wild children running down the sidewalk for ice cream. I saw local teens staring at their phones, giggling and sharing videos.  I saw sweet couples walking hand in hand maybe on their anniversary, or a vacations away from the kids. 

Perhaps the best summer development was my new road biking hobby, with a sweet bike lent to my by my cousin for my blogging adventures. I biked to almost every Falmouth beach, and explored most of Martha’s Vineyard too. Man was that fun!

I am going to miss this little town and all the Woods Hole Inn staff. Cape Cod was a great adventure, and as I head back over to Germany this October on my next adventure, I will be bringing a little piece of Woods Hole with me…

A Woods Hole cap of course!

I hope you have enjoyed my take on the Cape. This is not good bye, this is a see you later!

Understanding the Secret Lives of Sharks
Camrin Braun, Joint Program Student, Biology Department

All the information that scientists understand about the iconic great white
shark comprise only a few short sentences. We have no generalizable knowledge
about what they eat or their feeding behaviors, no knowledge of where they go
to mate or to breed, and absolutely no answers to “why” they do almost
anything. For all other shark species, we know even less. Learn how researchers
are using cutting-edge, satellite-based tags on sharks in our back yard on Cape
Cod to answer some of these basic questions about sharks.

The Pleats of Time

August 26, 2016 by Beth Colt

A music theater piece with Eugenie Kuffler – conception, composition, choreography, lighting design, interpretation and Janoah Bailin – juggling, movement and acting. Tickets $12. With words, music, movement and light The Pleats of Time tells 2 stories that were hidden away, enfolded into the past – the 1st, from mist enshrouded adolescence when love was so strong it burned; the 2nd, more recent, from within the sheets of a bed – a long poem during which a woman frees herself from the oppressive bonds of her lover. And between these stories a 3rd one, that of Kamil Guenatri, a performance artist whose shrunken body is confined to a wheel chair but whose creativity offers the energy to open the pleats of the unresolved past.

How to Sink a Boat: The Ocean Engineering BehindAlvinand Other Deep-sea Manned Vehicles
Bruce Strickrott, AlvinManager, Operational Scientific Services

Alvin and other
deep-sea manned submersibles are complex machines with high-tech systems. But
the principles of diving a deep-submergence vehicle are based on the
fundamentals of physics, hydrodynamics, and engineering. This presentation
includes a brief history of submarine systems (1600s through 1900s) and lessons
on the basic concepts that take Alvin
and other deep-sea manned vehicles safely to and from the seafloor.

How to Explore Chappaquiddick Island, Edgartown MA in four steps

August 23, 2016 by Julia Pearl

Woods Hole Shipyard Authority

Chappaquiddick Island, the island off of Martha’s Vineyard

Located off Martha’s Vineyard is Chappaquiddick Island, or Chappy as the locals call it.  Barely connected to the main island by a thread of beach, often breached in storms, the main way to Chappy is by ferry from Edgartown. Exploring this remote island is one of the highlights of a visit to Cape Cod and can be accomplished in four easy steps from the Woods Hole Inn.

1 — Take the Martha’s Vineyard Ferry 

The ferry terminal is about 100 steps out the back door of the Woods Hole Inn, with ferries departing to Oaks Bluff and Vineyard Haven regularly from 6am- 9:30pm. The trip takes about forty minutes ($17 RT passenger fare plus an additional $8 for your bicycle).  My friend and I hopped on the 9:30am ferry to Oaks Bluff to start our bike adventure to Chappaquiddick Island.

Oaks Bluff - Edgartown Jaws Bridge

2 — Ride the Beach Street Bike Path 

Once in Oak Bluffs, we hopped onto Beach Street.  This six mile bike path takes you along stunning Joseph Sylvia State Beach, right onto the center of upscale Edgartown, MA. It is a beautiful ride of about 45 minutes, and we successfully resisted diving off the famous Jaws Bridge — saving that for the way back.

Chappy Ferry

3 — Find the Chappy Ferry 

The Chappy Ferry is located right next to Memorial Wharf, off Dock street in Edgartown. The ferry travels 527 feet, lasts about 2 minutes and delivers you to a whole other world ($6 round trip with a bike). The ferry is called “On Time” as it has no official schedule, just goes back and forth all day.  We enjoyed the brief ride, waved to the ferry driver and zipped out the only road.

Wasque Point

View from Wasque Point

4 — Explore Chappaquiddick Island

We biked about four miles on pavement before the road turned to dirt. Wobbling over pebbles and spinning out in sand pockets was a bit tricky in our street bikes, but we managed. After about a mile, we crossed a small bridge which opened up to the gorgeous Wasque Point, facing the Atlantic to the southeast.  From here, it’s clear sailing, blue sky ocean as far as you can see, next stop Spain.

Our Chappaquiddick Island adventure took us to a whole other world with 38,000 acres of pure nature, conservation lands and unparalleled ocean views. The Island is larger than you think, so I highly recommend taking your bike over — maybe with tire repair kit for that sandy road.  Bikes are also available for rent in Oak Bluffs.

Next time, we will visit Poucha Pond at the Mytoi Japanese Gardens or find the famous Cape Poge Lighthouse.  There is much to see on Chappaquiddick, the island off the island, a memorable day trip from the Woods Hole Inn.  I called them four easy steps, but only you can be the judge of the “easy” part.  Enjoy exploring!
