Trip to New England: Part One

Trip:
We recently embarked on a trip to New England. We hired a car (a silver Ford Fusion) and drove to Seattle airport, and flew via Newark to Boston.
 
When we arrived we stayed our first night at the Four Points Sheraton. It was a nice stay and we indulged on some comfort food at the pub on the main floor.
 
Day One:
Bright and early the next morning we got our hire car for the week, a silver Jeep Patriot and drove to Hyannis on the Cape. We had a delicious lunch at the Beach Tree on Main Street.
 
Cory indulged in a full rack of ribs. He only managed half though.

I had a salmon taco and a seafood cauldron with shrimp, lobster and scallops.

Then we went to the coast and took many photos.
 


 
While in the Cape we stayed at the Hyannis Harbor Hotel, which I highly recommend. It was across the road from the dock, and close to many restaurants and Main street.
 
 
That night we walked up Main Street and we fell in love with the handmade candies at Kandy's Korner.
 
 
At night all the cutesy buildings are lit up, and the streets are alive with fellow tourists taking a stroll or going out to eat.
 
That day we had Spanky's for dinner, and we also sampled a beer at the British Beer Co.
 
Day Two:
The next day we crossed the road and took a harbor cruise, which sailed past the Kennedy compound. I dressed for a Fall day, but by lunchtime we were roasting and I had just a tank top to wear.

Cory was eager to take lots of photos.

Yes, I blinked.




 
Later that day we drove out to dinner and both of us indulged in a lobster roll, yes...even Cory! That night we ate at Spanky's again, as we enjoyed it so much the evening before.
 
Day Three:
The next day, we got up early and went on a scenic train ride on the Cape Cod Railway...we saw lots of TREES and cranberry bogs.

Very nice photos! I'd sure like to hear more about whether or not you think this could become home for you. :-)
