I had to run an errand to Hyannis and Osterville one day and took a little walk round the main part of the village. Here's a map to show where Osterville is located (red dot). It's one of the villages in the town of Barnstable.
Cotacheset was the Native American name of the town. As the white settlers moved in, the area became famous for oystering, so renamed Oysterville. Unfortunately a spelling error on a map changed it to Osterville.
I must have been to Osterville at least one or two times as a kid, but it's not a place that I would go without a reason, although it's still very pretty and largely unchanged. It's very upscale, elegant, beautiful and quaintly 'olde Cape Cod'. The Kennedys shop here, where I'm more at home on funky Main Street in Hyannis.
This hibiscus was just awesome.
This funky car was parked in front of me.
