- 32% of all homes on the Cape rate as 'second homes' - an identified 49,563
- Wellfleet has the highest percentage of second homes - 64% (ed: WOW!)
- 32% of these second homes (an estimated 10,656) are likely to be converted to year-round use in the next 15 years
These stats (and a few others) will have a dramatic effect on the Cape and it's infrastructure as these homes become permanent residences, mostly to the water systems. Read the article from the Cape Codder, or take on the whole report at http://www.capecodcommission.org/.

Blue Rock is one of the finest Par-3 golf courses in the country. The photo on the right is of the signature 9th hole, a 169 yard shot over water onto an elevated green. The men's blue tees are slightly higher than the green while the ladies' red tees are below, forcing the ladies to tee-off uphill.

The host highlights the Cape Cod Maritime Museum in Hyannis, the "Outer Beach" (aka Coast Guard beach), and Eastham's Three Sisters lighthouses. Check out the video and the Maritime Days website. The events started May 2nd and go to May 31st.

At long last the Town of Eastham is on the road to a municipal water system with the approval of a $3M+ study to determine the best path to town water. Although the study will take a few years, it begins a journey that (hopefully) will ensure a continuing water supply into the future, as water quality slowly (but surely) deteriorates. This decision will need to be ratified with a Proposition 2 1/2 override vote scheduled with town elections on May 19th.
Likewise, wind turbine measures were approved, both residential and municipal. The municipal turbine vote made the 2/3's majority required by one vote.
