The latest American Idol series has produced a home-grown Cape Cod talent in the lovely, gifted singer Siobhan Magnus. But what is the relevance to a Cape Cod bed and breakfast inn? Well, she is a real cat (and Edward Gorey) lover, so much so that on her right arm you can see a tattoo of Edward Gorey’s Gashlycrumb Tinies, and if you know anything about the man himself, you will know he also was a true “cat person”. His fantastic, historic home, which now houses the Edward Gorey House museum, is just a five-minute walk from our inn, and is now open for the 2010 season.
We were told yesterday, when we visited the museum (by the way, it’s the sort of place you can lose yourself in for quite some time – and find gems of gifts in the fantastic shop) that Siobhan learned the alphabet reciting the names of the 26 Gashlycrumb Tinies (A-Z). Her Mom is a huge Gorey fan, too. The museum is probably Cape Cod’s quirkiest, and certainly is one to keep you coming back for more, as we do. So why not check out the opening hours of the museum, and tie them in with one of our “Spring Fling” packages, which include FREE entry to the museum. Hope to see you soon!
