Henry Beston's Outermost House, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

 Cape Cod photographs were taken throughout the early 1970's of  Beston's "Outermost House", before it was washed out to sea in 1978.   Original Photographs from Archives.
“I wanted a place to come to in the summer, one cosy enough to be visited in the winter could I manage to get down... It consisted of two rooms, a bed-room and a kitchen-living room, and its dimensions overall were but twenty by sixteen.  A brick fireplace with its back to the wall between rooms heated the larger space and took the chill off the bedroom.”  
- Henry Beston, The Outermost House

Winter Views of Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire




When, with the passing of many years, a year-round summer person has worn out several sets of snow tires and long underwear, paid property taxes many times, toughed out a few winters without either Florida or Arizona, raised a succession of vegetable gardens, and become a legal resident, "you qualify for the highest attainable accolade " says Jim Brunelle.  "You are now 'from away'. Strive for nothing beyond this.  You've had it."
