Reflections about Colonial History

History surrounds us no matter where we live. New England abounds with historical landmarks and each place has its own story.  I like history, so when we moved to Cape Cod, I became curious about  this sand spit or peninsula that extends out into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of North America.  Thankfully, it has proven itself to be abundant in tall tales, myth and legend. The very first summer we moved here from Ohio, I found a pottery shard along Brewster's tidal flats. This small, blue flowered relic inspired me to spin a 'what if' story to anyone who would listen.
That was 24 years ago and I haven't stopped hunting, searching and researching every inch of Cape Cod.
