Cold Storage Beach, Cape Cod


The body of a 13 year old boy is one of 55 exhumed so far from a makeshift cemetery at a racially segregated reform school, infamous for the accusations against it of beatings, torture and murder. The boy, Thomas, was sent there in 1934 for stealing a typewriter. The school was shut in 2011.

fish and chips at nancy's, oak bluffs

Nancy's snack bar and restaurant is a favourite in Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard. Even President Obama and his family stop here regularly on their annual vacation, so I was excited to give their fish and chips a go, especially as I took my dog with me on my day trip to the Vineyard, and Nancy's have an outdoor picnic area overlooking Oak Bluffs waterfront that is dog-friendly.

The day was beautiful, the location was fantastic, overlooking the harbour and right in the middle of the Oak Bluffs waterfront area, with its many shops, restaurants and traditional Martha's Vineyard 'gingerbread' architecture. The fish and chips were... average.

It may be that I'm getting a little spoiled, with all the fantastic fish and chips I've been eating recently (Cambridge Common, Chatham Bars Inn and Sesuit Harbor Cafe are the standouts), but this definitely wasn't the best fish I've had. It was a little overcooked, a little on the dry side, the batter very unexciting. The chips were good and the thing I liked best was that they actually came with malt vinegar, a British staple for sprinkling on chips.

Great location, good chips, loved the malt vinegar. Disappointing fish.
