"Isle of View" Wells Beach by Barbie2138
Wells Beach Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 9 photos
A friend and I stumbled on this little cottage on Wells Beach. The elderly owner called to us from her deck and engaged us in a 'history' of the area and how she came to live there. I'll never forget her, though I don't remember her name. She said her father built the house which she used as a summer home to get away from the city (Boston). He called it Isle of View. "If you say it real fast," she said, "What does it sound like?" Her father died there, shoveling snow. This would be her last summer at the beach. She had sold the house because, "I'm getting too old," she said. I picked wildflowers from the sand and put them in a plastic sandwich bag. Later I bought a
t-shirt that said, "Wells Beach...The Way Life Should Be."
Wells Beach Finest.....
