Here is one of our favorite chocolate chip recipes. It’s peanut butter- chocolate chip, its delicious, and just so happens to also be gluten free, not that you would know. They are so tasty!
If you make them, we’d love to know if you liked them and to see pictures shared on social media!

Today in Chatham
Today we spent the majority of our day in the town of Chatham. Chatham is home to the famous U.S. Coast Guard Station featured in The Finest Hours and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC), both of which we visited. At the White Shark Conservancy, we learned about great white sharks and the high concentration of white sharks in the Chatham area due to the increased local seal population.

THE VIEW FROM ALOFT: Spring Improvements to Woods Hole Campus
As I write this, spring is just around the corner. You would think that the cold, winter months are the not-so-busy-time for SEA’s shore facilities coordinator. On the contrary! I may not be out and about as much, but my days are filled with planning and coordinating our much-needed springtime maintenance activities. I’m fortunate this year to have a six-week window of opportunity to get some larger improvement projects done that would otherwise interrupt student life here on campus.
