A Coffee Drinker’s Heaven

Whether it’s December or August, Coffee Obsession – a latte lovers hangout in the village of Woods Hole — is often packed with happy customers. In the winter, Coffee O is a cozy spot to drink a cocoa royal and read a book and in the summer, Coffee O provides an air-conditioned space to cool off and surf the web while sipping on an iced coffee. In between a few of my jobs, I frequently find myself seeking out Coffee O as a place to relax and refuel. I love being able to order my favorite drink (iced hazelnut coffee […]

The Trolley starts at the Walmart parking lot and […]

Think graduate students dressed as green florescent sporozoites (whatever that is!) and you will start to get an idea.   Combining the love of marine biology and patriotism, local scientists come out in force for a fun and quirky parade. I got to Woods Hole early, thinking I could grab a coffee with plenty of time to find a spot on Water Street. By the time I got there, the streets were already flooded with people, jostling for spots to watch this distinctive show. From socks to hats, the […]
