Street Scene: Quarantine

We are reviving a column long-time readers may remember called Street Scene, where we ask people around town a set of questions. In this revamped quarantine edition, we hope to share with you over the next few weeks a snapshot of how your fellow Outer Cape Codders are handling the COVID19 pandemic. Enjoy!

Today’s feature:

Marian Peck of Provincetown

Describe your typical day in quarantine

Waking up with a to-do list, most of it from yesterday’s list or the day before. Then feeling great that I managed to at least check off one item on my list.

What’s something unexpectedly positive to come out of this pandemic/quarantine for you?

Feeling so fortunate to be living here in this beautiful seaside community, which, having lived here 20 years plus, I may have just taken for granted from time to time.

What’s the best film or tv show you have watched during quarantine and why?

The Tunnel – Prime Video. Because I’m a police procedural kinda woman! And parts of it allowed me to brush up on my French.

What’s the best book you have read during quarantine and why?

Can’t seem to get past 20 pages of anything.

What’s the weirdest item you’ve had trouble finding at stores in this time?

Powdered milk and nail polish remover.

What’s the first thing you plan to do when you come out of quarantine and it’s totally safe to go out into the world again?

Go to Fanizzi’s to sit in the dining room and look at the bay while having the best plate of nachos.

You’ll know everything is normal again in Provincetown when ______

When I no longer hear the word ‘unprecedented’ several times a day.
