The 4th of July dawned a beautiful day and we had grand plans for taking a sailboat tour and having a picnic before the fireworks display in Hyannis. Unfortunately, our sailboat company turned out to have questionable business ethics (they canceled our tour siting boat troubles, but then we saw them heading out with another tour later in the evening!). We ended up on a much larger boat and had quite a ride because the sea was choppy and the wind was high!
After our boat ride, we set up a picnic by the harbor and waited for the fireworks to begin. It was a lovely evening. However, the fireworks turned out to be a huge disappointment. Clouds/fog rolled in as it got dark and completely obscured the fireworks! In fact, we could only see the top 1/4 of each firework! Grace kept saying, "I'm sure that one was spectacular!"
While in Cape Cod we also took advantage of the fantastic Rail Trail on our bikes. The house we rented was right next to the trail so it was super easy and convenient.
One day, Bryce and Ron took the children to the nature center in Brewster and Gretchen and I were able to sneak in a few stops at antique stores. I scored two fabulous items that I'm super excited about!
Our trip was a great time spent with friends!
I literally have no idea why I am standing like that!
