|The Red Shack's roof was destroyed, while others fared much better. Firefighters|
did a remarkable job of containing this fire, Photo by Orleans Fire Department.
|I took this photo from Lopes Square the day after the fire. Structural damage|
may keep the Red Shack and Tatiana's from reopening till the autumn season,
while the Surf Club may open sooner. The Coffee Pot aims for July 4th or sooner.

44 hikers stranded on the breakwater during am exceptionally high
tide over Memorial Day weekend. Photo by Provincetown Police.
|During an "average" high tide, even the low spots in the breakwater are still about|
about three feet above the water level, so these fishermen had no trouble this day.
|This fisherman didn't know what to do when he realized he was|
trapped by rising water. He must have been in a low spot. This
tide was three inches lower than Sunday's, stranding 44 hikers.
