Sorry to hear this. "Gumption" is old-fashioned, these days, but it likely runs in your family. Still, little can spill the wind from sails as quickly and completely as suspicion leavened with authority and tempered by ignorance. Good luck--I know you and your family will find a way.

Terry, Onset Beach is just the other side of Great Neck where Windrock lies. And if you sailed out of Marion, you certainly passed in front of the big red house beyond the bluff and the gray erratic perched on the brink that gives the place its name.

Today I went to a meeting in New Bedford to plan a way forward with an even broader array of conservation folks. Learned some things, made some plans. We shall see.

I am sad to hear this. I never knew mayors and 1st selectmen in the Bay State have absolute veto power over such matters. Sounds outrageous ...

I practically feel like I know Windrock after having read your blog for the last couple of years. I often pass thru Wareham on the way to my dad's place in West Dennis.

When I spent the summer of '73 working at a dinner theatre in the village of Buzzards Bay, we used to go to Onset beach, which I believe is in Wareham. Plus I had a friend in Marion who used to take me on boat rides across the bay. Who knows? Maybe we sailed right past Windrock.

May the fat lady sing only after your conservation restriction has been secured.

As indeed do we. One of the real benefits of this process is how it has strengthened an already close extended family, united in common purpose across three generations.

Ah, the ins and outs of Massachusetts town government. I hope the house lot
sales option is never used, Tim.
