ABC Wednesday: Y is for Yarmouth, Cape Cod

South Yarmouth is a small port east of Haynnis facing the Atlantic ocean. Here is a typical Cape Cod cottage with gray shingles and a small bridge crossing the marshland.

Further out, we just snapped a gull (see our last week's ABC Wednesday for more gull pictures) flying over the marshland.

Here is a charming dock used for boat landing on the bank of Swan River, a very typical little stream on the Cape.

This is our favorate fish market on the Cape. They have the freshest seafood, cod, haddock, sole, mussels, clams, Truro oysters, bay scallops, and of course, lobsters (hungry yet?). You can see two lobster traps displayed on the roof.

So THIS is the New England Yarmouth!
Whenever I Google for Tel Yarmouth (where I did archaeology) your place comes instead.
The American one looks so nice in your pictures, a far cry from the ancient Canaanite site.
Love those old lobster traps on the roof.
Shalom to you, Grace and Bradley.

love pictures of gulls and I love fish, so this looks like a place for me - but I could probably not afford it :-(

Yes, you did make me hungry.

What a tranquil looking place. When we were kids we used to have holidays near to Great Yarmouth - a seaside town on the east coast of England :)

Great photos that make me want to go there and experience the charm of grey weathered wood, green marsh, sea birds. I could even smell the salt air!

These are beautiful shots of Cape Cod. My family vacationed there when I was a child. I can smell the salt air just seeing your photos. I love the seagull, and the lobster traps.

Yes, I AM hungry now! I visited there once and had my fill of seafood, but somehow it just doesn't last a lifetime! Beautiful photos!

Such a scenic place.

I saw the word Yarmouth and immediately thought of the Yarmouth in Norfolk, England - not too far away from me as the crow flies, really. Some of my ancestors came from there.

Your Yarmouth looks pretty flat, and peaceful, too!
