With a 586-mile coastline, Cape Cod's fame for seafood came about quite naturally. Even its name is testimony to the fish and industry that became so important to the early settlers. It is this reputation of Cape Cod's fishing industry on which A Cape Cod Seafood Cookbook (Parnassus Imprints, $14.95) is based. The author, food consultant Margaret Deeds Murphy, has been a resident of the cape for nearly 20 years. Her recipes are straightforward, and a good many of them take advantage of the simplicity inherent in preparing fish.

Jesse Levis, the former Northeast High standout who played outstanding baseball for the University of North Carolina last spring, has no plans to rest on his laurels. So the Tar Heels' 5-foot-9, 175-pound catcher has been playing in the Cape Cod (Mass.) Summer Baseball League against some of the finest college baseball players in the country. Levis, who earlier this year hit .317 with 11 home runs and 37 RBIs and was named second team All Atlantic Coast Conference, said his college coach, Mike Roberts, told him about the summer league.

ORLEANS, Mass. - The Flyers continued their "Getting To Know You" portion of their preseason on Sunday, practicing for 90 intense minutes here in Cape Cod as they prepare for Wednesday's opener in Boston. The previous day, they played paintball - Nick Grossmann was dominating - and ate meals together. Their deep-sea fishing excursion Sunday afternoon was canceled because of choppy waters, so the team watched NFL games together. "Listen, it doesn't determine wins and losses, but it gets your team together," coach Craig Berube said.

HYANNIS, Mass. - A new museum exhibit tells the story of President John F. Kennedy's last visits to Cape Cod in the months before his assassination. Officials at John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum say the exhibit includes videos, photos, and news clips that look back on the final days of the president's administration through a Cape Cod lens. Museum development director John Allen says visitors will see images including JFK swimming with his children and the president kissing his father's head on the family's porch.

PROVINCETOWN, Mass. - The biggest sensation on Cape Cod right now isn't the lobster, the historic lighthouses, or its rolling sand dunes. It's not even a Kennedy. It's a bear. A bruin believed to have swum about 500 feet across the Cape Cod Canal from the mainland on Memorial Day weekend has captured the imagination of residents as it traipses across the peninsula. Officials say research dating to the 1700s suggests this is the first bear on the Cape. Boston-area newscasts are featuring daily updates on the bear's whereabouts, and a Cape Cod Bear Twitter feed has more than 1,300 followers.

WELLFLEET, Mass. - All roads lead to water. Which means, here on the outer curl of Cape Cod, 70 miles or so into the Atlantic Ocean, where tall marsh greens in autumn turn the color of butterscotch, all roads lead to oysters. Bumper stickers remind you of the oyster fishermen who drive alongside you down U.S. Highway 6. Oysters are painted on the sides of homes. Oysters dominate every menu and suck at your heels on the beach. Heading north down the long neck of the Cape, toward Provincetown, you can make two turns at Wellfleet.

As we pulled into Hyannis' Ocean Street Docks, we could see the flag-waving masts of the pirate ship bobbing on the shimmering water. Standing next to the small boat were about a dozen pint-sized pirates, wearing paper hats and painted scars, eager to set sail for the open seas. The 1 1/2-hour cruise promised lots of swashbuckling fun, with costumed pirates, water cannons to ward off an enemy frigate, even a sunken treasure. We were all set to start yo-ho-ho-ing when the ship's captain told me he had given away our places because we were five minutes late.

Jimmy Johnson has done a lot of things. But unless he has figured out a way to be in two places at the same time, one of them wasn't dining with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie on Labor Day weekend. The Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday quoted a Cape Cod, Mass., restaurant manager who said Lurie had dinner with the former Dallas Cowboys coach and current Fox-TV analyst on the Friday or Saturday before Labor Day, presumably to discuss his joining the Eagles. "Yes, absolutely," Bill Zammer Sr., manager of the Popponesset Inn, was quoted as saying.

This just couldn't be right. We were looking for the cliff beaches of Cape Cod, not the hilly little forests. Why bother coming all the way up here? You can find hilly little forests just north of Philadelphia. But the forest was what we got, on a rambling road that looked on the map as if it were right next to the Atlantic Ocean. Drat these maps. They always make it look a little too easy. To add insult to injury, as we drove on, we got forests dotted with houses. More and more, we seemed to be going into civilization, not driving away from it. Then we took a sharp turn, and another, and in an instant we saw it - a stretch of blue in the distance.

The question on everyone's mind is: Will we see them? About 300 of us are sailing toward Provincetown from about 20 miles back in Barnstable, on the northern muscle of the arm of earth that is Cape Cod, and we're all wondering the same thing. Provincetown is to our right, on the horizon. By sea, it's taking us 40 minutes to travel a route that by car, during the summer clog, can be two boring hours. But all of this sweeping view and ocean blue is just mildly impressive. For 3 1/2 or 4 hours, we are all sailors, that's why we're here.

Kathryn Taylor is a writer in Wallingford The end of August really annoys me. Not that year-round summer appeals to me. I genuinely enjoy the changing of the seasons. It's just that the end of August seems to come so . . . suddenly. Consider the transition from fall to winter. When does that happen? No set time. Snow can fall on Halloween, and the sun can bring out T-shirts for running on Christmas. The leaves take forever to come down, with week after week of raking. Our township makes leaf pickups from Nov. 1 through Dec. 10. Holiday madness builds a gradual crescendo from September on, and the winter solstice takes no one by surprise.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall has a new coach and a new training camp plan, and he hopes they energize the franchise. In May, the University of North Dakota's Dave Hakstol was named the 19th coach in Flyers history. "I think it was the right move for the organization," Hextall said in a wide-ranging news conference at the Skate Zone in Voorhees on Thursday. "I'm excited about it, just to have a fresh set of eyes and thoughts - and move forward from what was a disappointing season.

Last week I saw the play Detroit at the Philadelphia Theatre Company. It wasn't really about Detroit. It was about neighbors. About the randomness of who might chance to move in next door. About the strange intimacy that can come with neighbors who just may invade your lives and change them. Detroit addressed how the whole concept of neighborhood has changed over my lifetime. One of the characters in the play summed it up in one line: " Neighbors - the word is really archaic.

ORLEANS, Mass. - The Flyers got some encouraging news Monday morning: High-scoring right winger Wayne Simmonds practiced in Cape Cod and showed no ill effects from a foot injury - a sign that he may play in Wednesday's opener in Boston. It was the first time Simmonds skated since last Tuesday, when he injured his left foot blocking a shot in a 4-2 preseason win against the visiting New York Rangers. He was wearing a boot Sunday. "I felt as good as I could today," Simmonds said after Monday's 70-minute practice.

After Sam Morin's impressive training camp, the Flyers considered keeping the 19-year-old defenseman on the roster before "reality" hit and they sent him back to juniors Friday. "It gets a little tempting, and then you kind of hit 'refresh' and think about reality, which is these are preseason games and there's a lot of young players in the lineups and a lot of the older players in the league aren't necessarily brining the good stuff," general manager Ron Hextall said. The 6-foot-7, 224-pound Morin will play for Rimouski in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

WASHINGTON - Right winger Wayne Simmonds missed the Flyers' last preseason game Thursday night because of a lower-body injury. Simmonds led the Flyers with 29 goals last season. Coach Craig Berube said Simmonds' status for the season opener Wednesday in Boston was unknown, but it seems a good sign that he will travel with the team Friday to Cape Cod, where the Flyers will have two practices and some bonding activities. Blair Jones, a free-agent signee who has been one of the most pleasant surprises in training camp, replaced Simmonds on a line with Sean Couturier and Matt Read on Thursday.
