While staying on the Cape over Thanksgiving I fished Hamblin Pond in Marston Mills. It is a kettle pond formed tens of thousands of years ago when glaciers receded at the end of the last ice age. There are hundreds of them on Cape Cod, many of which are productive and often overlooked. I was there throwing wet flies when the sun set at 4:13pm, to no avail.
by Stephen King contains 4 novellas. During our visit I read one of them, The Body
, with the kids. It became the classic 1986 movie Stand by Me
, and is one of King's that is not horror. Another in the collection is Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption
that the movie The Shawshank Redemption
is based on.
