I have a confession. I have live on the North Shore of Massachusetts for 18 months. I listen to the weather each morning on the radio. I am a geographer.
For the entire time I have lived here I have been wondering: Where are these Capin Islands that they are always talking about? I have never heard of them before!
Just yesterday it came to me. The weather announcer is talking about the Cape (Cape Cod) and the Islands (Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard): The capin islands.
