Today is the beginning of a busy week exploring this area. We were up by 8 and I woke Bonnie around 9. I think we were on the road by 10. I will try to tell the story of the day in pictures.
It was raining when we left the condo. Shortly down the road the Tire pressure alarm came on. I put air in all the tires but the left rear was the lowest, not sure if there is a problem time will tell. Since it was raining we headed to the Cape Cod Potato Chip factory. They have a self guided tour, that was quite interesting. They even use potatoes from our part of NY. Today they were using Maine potatoes.
|We are happier than we look|
|Lots of line can be stored in a small space.|
|Happy to finally be at a light house|
|This hut is where the first transatlantic cable terminated.|
Next are the Three Sisters lights that have been moved here from near Chatham. They could use a little restoration but were built in 1892.

Well its Election Day I sure hope you were able to vote. We all voted before we left using absentee ballots.
Today we headed left out of the condo. We were headed for Woods Hole. Lots of traffic on the road getting there. Bonnie was not feeling up to par and so we made a stop at a walk in clinic and pharmacy.
|Interesting he is an Attorney and a M.D|
|Lots of research is done in Woods Hole|
|Lots of fishing vessels|
|NOAA Research Vessel|
|Time for a little fun|
We decided to get something to eat and stopped at Pie in the Sky. It was good but all the food here seems pretty expensive both eating out and in the super market.
It looked like we had time so we headed off the Cape and up to Plymouth.

Well the election results are on and we are going to watch the returns.
The election is over, now its time to support the ones elected and pray that they will all work together for the good of the country.
Its windy here on Cape Cod and the wind is to increase during the day into tonight.
Yes the wind continued to build and it started to rain around noon. We headed up to Sandwich and first visited Pairpoint Glass factory
|Watching the Glassblowers|
|Bonnie got to shop, she did not find any clearance items.|
|The belly of the beast|

Sorry for the lack of color but it is really overcast, a real dreary day.
We are back at the Condo safe and sound for the evening.
Thanks for Checking In.
