More Film Festival News




In the past few weeks my 2015 short Why We Went to the Moon, has been made an Official Selection at three very diverse film festivals. In late September, WWWttM makes its Canadian debut at the Hamilton (ONT) Music and Film Festival. 

Later this fall the film will screen as part of the Guam International Film Festival in Hagatna, Guam. I just received notice that the work has been selected by the Slash and Bash Film Festival of Topeka KS. This will be the twelfth edition of the festival. Prior attendeees have included Adrienne Barbeau of Swamp Thing fame.

Mission accomplished!


Old Silver Beach in Falmouth. We have just about closed the loop here. OSB is on Buzzard's Bay. Continuing up the Bay would get us back to Bourne. (Remember Day 1?) Warm, but rough waters here at the mouth of the Bay.

Sixteen beaches in two days! And now for a relaxing dinner with friends and a long, dry ride home. Thanks to Jan for her more than generous hosting.

Only one more beach to conquer!


It's South Cape Beach in Mashpee. Number 15 out of 16. South Cape is just about the only public beach in the town of Mashpee. Run by the Commonwealth. They wanted to collect a parking fee but the machine was broken. Last of the Sound side beaches.

Faces glow as the end draws near

Beach #14, Craigville in Barnstable, accomplished with flair. My only memory of going on vacation with my hardworking father was coming here for a few days when I was very young. Nice big parking lot and more warm Sound waters.

Happier and happier


Seagull Beach in West Yarmouth makes #13. I lived up the street from this beach for two summers while in college in the 1970's. Betsy wisely decides that no picnic lunch will succeed at any place with the word "Seagull" in it. We make a picnic of tuna sandwiches and cokes in a nice little public park on the south side of Route 28 instead.

Beach 12 and it's almost noon

Lookin' good at Red River in Harwich. We have turned the corner and are heading west along Nantucket Sound. An entirely different aspect with some vegetation growing in the water at the shoreline, much calmer and somewhat warmer water. More people on the beaches too.
