I was born and raised in San Diego, California (thus the nickname) but have now lived on the Lower Cape for over 25 years. I live less than a mile from Willy's Gym in Eastham so I have NO EXCUSE not to work out!! I'm also new to the Team and have been on SparkPeople for three months. I'm excited!!

Sometimes it's not easy to get motivated to workout or go to the gym. But when I am finished, I have NEVER once said, "Gee, I wish I didn't do that."

I am defintely a washashore spending time in NH and Long Island as a child; before landing on the Cape. We moved back in 2005 to Falmouth. I also work in Falmouth but visit offices in Brockton & Hyannis.

I am very involved as a crew leader for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and will be participating again this year, May 15-16. If anyone is interested in Crewing or Walking please send me a message as I am always looking to involve more people from the cape.

Hey everyone! The leader has moved off cape *gasp* Well if it weren't for the IMPOSSIBLE rent I would have stayed and may move back depending... I digress

I'm now living in the Manomet section of Plymouth with friends until I can find suitable housing for me and my kitty.

I don't live on the cape...but my parents do and I have been coming to the cape all my life... every summer, every childhood vacation, many great memories and future trips to the cape. I actually live just north of the sagamore bridge in South Plymouth.

I grew up off Cape but moved here 25 years ago.
My mother was born in Harwich and moved off Cape when she got married. When my dad died, she moved back but was never referred to as a local again as she wasn't "born and died" on Cape Cod. I am a wash ashore but at least I have seen some of the world.

So very true. I've been here 17 years. We moved down when I was 11. But I'm most certainly still considered a washashore.

My dad grew up on Cape Cod - Cataumet, but back then there wasn't a hospital on Cape Cod, so he was born in Wareham at Tobey hospital.

He and my mom started up housekeeping on the Cape, but as many of you know, it's hard to make a living here. My folks moved to Manchester, NH just before I was born. But then he moved back again after my mom passed away and he remarried a Cape Codder who didn't want to budge. I was about 5 when we settled back here for good, I've lived on the Cape ever since. I'm 56 now, so I've here for the last 51 years and I've seen a lot of changes.

I grew up in Falmouth, then I migrated to Centerville, then Bass River (S. Yarmouth) then Marstons Mills, Cotuit, back to Centerville, then W. Dennis, then Hyannis, then Falmouth, then Wellfeet, and finally Eastham. I've lived in Eastham for the last 16 years.

So I guess I'm closer to a native than not.

This reminds me of a story told in Nantucket about a guy whose mom went to the mainland to give birth. She returned to the island and the man grew up and lived and died there. He was in his 80s when he passed and they put "So long stranger" on his grave marker. LOL

*bending back into shape* WHAT? Wareham?? the cape..LOL

J/K. I grew up with my grandparents living in Plymouth and we used to call that the Cape! Now that I live over the bridge, I admit to becoming more of a location snob. Even the weathermen call Plymouth the south shore. Oh well, We all know what we are talking about. I won't begrudge you using our peninsula...or is it an island....as your marker :)

I know you all are about to (or at least might) get a little bent when I say that I'm from Wareham and I do in fact call it that cape....if you don't no one knows where the heck I'm located!! I maintain it's close enough anyway since I get to "enjoy" at least half of the tourists this time of year!

Everybody -

I've seen Saahira dance. She is exceptional. I would highly recommend her shows/class!!! I won't be able to make the show this month but Saahira said they have a show every month. Maybe we can arrange some field trips???? Anybody interested?

OMG Saahira I just called last week to get details on your classes!!! What a small world. One of my friends at work and I decided we need to get back to taking belly dance classes. I took a little over 1 year of classes while I was still living in Ohio a few years back. (after dancing for 14 years growing up it just calls to me) We were going to drop in one of these weeks on a class to make sure it was where we wanted to go.

Everyone else... the Black Spot is on Ocean St. in Hyannis. They have pagan Sunday coffee once a month in coordination with the Sandwich Herb Shop and a few other groups.

Well, we know we are living on Cape, so where on the Cape do you live? Cuz no matter what those weathermen and news people say, the Cape is not just one big town!!!

While you're at it, let us know if you are a born and bred Cape Codder or a transplant!
