Along with our friends Rick and Kate and Pat and Bob, Hubby and I headed on an adventure to Cape Cod. We made our first stop at The Skipper Chowder House in South Yarmouth where they offered a lovely brunch out on the patio. The weather was spectacular....clear blue sky and about 70 degrees.
It being Father's Day and all, the guys decided they'd all love to take a ride in the company vehicle.
The focus of our trip was the Wydah Pirate Museum.
Our friend Pat is a singer/songwriter and she wrote an amazing song about young John King, who was an 11 year old boy who went down on the Wydah Pirate Ship off the coast of Cape Cod.
While digging through the ruins, amongst other things was found a small black leather shoe. That shoe caught Pat's interest and, through research, she found out about John King.
When we found out the Wydah Museum had opened on the Cape, along with the actual shoe, a road trip seemed in order. The museum was beautifully done and very interesting. At the end of the trip, we decided to go back and video Pat and Rick performing the song on the bench in front of the museum. When Pat's husband Bob finishes developing the video, I will share it with you.
After seeing the Museum, we drove to the little cottage Pat found on Air B n B. Since the whole idea for the trip was Pat's, she got to be our tour director. And she did a phenomenal job!!! The cottage had a lovely kitchen, three bedrooms and a comfy living room.
It also had a beautiful back yard and patio that we didn't get to spend nearly enough time in.
The cottage was only a ten minute walk to the beach. It was a beautiful evening to stroll along with our feet in the water.
Pat and Bob found a nice spot to sit and rest.
That evening we got to spend some time playing Traditional Trivial Pursuit - boys against the girls. The boys won...but only by a tiny bit!!
The next morning we made breakfast at the cottage, then took a walk through a nature preserve which ended out at a beach on the bay side of the Cape.
Hubby and I picked up seashells, and Hubby found a whole Sand Dollar! I consider that good luck!
And then...another highlight of the trip.....Lobster Rolls at the Sesuit Cafe!! Hubby and I went rogue and got a seafood platter, but the others got what they said were the best Lobstah Rolls Evah!!
We sat at picnic tables by the water to eat, which is always such a favorite of mine.
To work off our lunch, we decided on some Mini Golf. In keeping with our Pirate weekend, we went to the Pirate Cove.
Tag and I did not win, so.............
Pat won and got to wear the "Green Jacket"
That afternoon we spent some time on the patio practicing our songs, because our wonderful Travel Guide Pat had found us an open mic to attend!
Cooper and Kenneally, as well as Karen and Tag, performed three songs each O'Shea's Pub in Dennis, MA.
We went to bed much earlier the second night!! After another great breakfast at the cottage, it was time to head home.
After taking some group shots at the cottage..............
and going back to the Wydah Museum to video "The Small Black Leather Shoe"..............
We went to Gelato Cafe Bertini's for the second time for some mouth-watering Gelato!
