more ice as needed. Garnish with a sprig of mint.

For those of you who thought you might want to take up paddle boarding this summer, think again where you plop your board ...The news was pretty straightforward today that a 12-foot Atlantic White Shark was tagged off of North Beach in Chatham yesterday - essential reading for a tourist.
Oh I forgot to tell you that last Sunday a few weekenders were taking the shuttle from Morris Island to North Beach and coasted into a pool of blood and a not so perky abandoned seal along the way.

Old fashion soda fountain sums up this Yarmouth port local. It's worth the stop. Nostalgic root beer floats, homemade sassafras, malted frappes, milkshakes...."Famous Clam Chowder." (The menu includes cream cheese and olive sandwiches which is another era altogether.) Something for everyone. I ordered a BLT wrap and a Hallet's Raspberry Lime Rickey and was happy as a clam. The ice cream is homemade so you really can't miss!
