My Dad and his girlfriend checked outta the W Yarmouth motel they spent the night at and drove out to E. Harwich. Got there around 10:30.
We stopped at Marion's and placed an order to pick up later on in the day. Ordered 3 small pies, a blueberry/peach, strawberry rhubarb and dutch apple.
Spent a couple of hours in Chatham (what's not to love). Went into Black Dog and picked up treats for our furbabies back home. Dad treated us to t-shirts plus he found a pair of cargo shorts on the clearance rack for himself. $15 reg. $44, good deal!
Poked around the Ben Franklin store, picked up a few goodies.
Drove by CBI, so pretty over there! :-)
Left Chatham and went to Brax for lunch. So nice sitting out on the deck there.
Picked up our pies and spent a few hours relaxing at the house.
Clancy's for dinner. Didn't think my scallops were as good as they usually are. Somewhat disappointed.
Marion's pies for dessert :-)
Another run to the Xmas Tree Shoppe. Found a few more things we didn't need, LOL
Then, we went into Brewster. I had wanted to visit the Underground/Karen North Wells Gallery, off of 6A. I had seen her work online a couple of years ago and thought wouldn't it be nice to visit the gallery. We ended up going the cheap route and purchasing about 6 5X7 greeting cards (to be framed).
Please, check out her site. Better yet, stop by the gallery.
Stopped at JT's (on 6A) for lunch. Pretty good :-)
Then we headed into Orleans to take pics by the Windmill
We were treated to a tour of the windmill, very interesting listening to its history, etc.....
Went to Cape Cod Creamery (Rte 28, S. Yarmouth) for an afternoon treat. Love sitting on the huge front porch in the comfy adirondack chairs enjoying my ice cream cone.
By this time, it was around 4:30 so we decided to take a ride over to W Dennis Beach. This wasn't a planned visit so we had no bathing suits, towels, etc.
We let the boys go in the water in their clothes. Honestly, I think this was the highlight of their trip. ;-)
Stopped so my Dad and his girlfriend could get tickets for the following day to go to Nantucket via the high-speed ferry.
Pizza for dinner (again).
Grumpy's (E Dennis) for breakfast. Boy, did we time it right. We got right in. Long line shortly thereafter.
Dropped my Dad/girlfriend off at the Harbor so they could catch the ferry. We'd pick them up back there at 8:45 PM.
The 4 of us went to Xmass Tree in Orleans. Naturally, we didn't leave empty-handed. We stopped @ Pleasant Bay (such a pretty area!). Really need water shoes though as there are a lotta rocks. Will remember that for next time.
Back to Brax for lunch. I had a 'Sandpiper' (pina colada with dark rum and kahlua). Yumm! :-)
Went to Grand Slam where the 4 of us went on the bumper boats (good thing we had changed into our suits). Talk about fun! :-)
Then, we went back to Skaket Beach (around 4:30-ish) and stayed for 2 hours. Honestly, that's probably the best time to go to the beach!
Packed what we could as we would be 'checking out' in the AM.
