Since we have been in Cape Cod. . .we have been going, going, going. . .
so I haven’t stopped long enough to blog. . .
Today’s blog is a compilation of several days. . .
I will just show you my favorite highlights,
and then for those of you interested enough,
click on the links to the albums for the entire story. . .
and hover over each pic to see the captions. . .thanks!

Hyannis, Hyannisport Harbor Cruise and the Kennedy Compound
we determined a Harbor Cruise out of Hyannis Mass
was the best way to see the Kennedy Compound. . .
from the time I knew we were going to Cape Cod,
seeing it was my main objective. . .
SUCCESS. . .it’s not near as formidable as imagined in my mind. . .
but I can certainly see why the family enjoyed being here so much. . .
the JFK Memorial Park is also available for your viewing pleasure. . .
a short drive, or walk from the Harbor. . .
Monday, Sept 9
State Capitol Building in Providence RI plus a side trip to Newport RI
We normally try to stay in on weekends to avoid all the crowds. . .
so we waited ‘til Monday to go check out . . .
the Rhode Island State House. . .
we even went inside. . .
on to the next event. . .
Newport Rhode Island is only 45 minutes away from Providence. . .
may as well go check it out. . .
we were here in 2005 off a New England Fall Foliage Cruise,
and toured the Newport Mansions then. . .
so not quite sure why we felt the need to return. . .
but a trolley tour to see the rest of the town might be nice. . .
so that’s what we did. . .the tour driver was very knowledgeable. . .
although from a personal standpoint. . .his jokes about wives were a little lame. . .
got a little old after about the first three. . .however. . .
he did know his stuff about who owned which house. . .
what it was worth. . .when it was built. . .really great!
my favorite pic of the day. . .one of the “mansion” owners out on Ocean Drive
has a farm. . .these are Galloways. . .the “Oreo Cookie” cow. . .
we drove over to the Cliff Walk and enjoyed walking down it for a few minutes. . .
it was damaged during Hurricane Sandy. . .so repairs are still ongoing. . .
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a couple days worth of our Escapades. . .
I mostly write this blog as my travel journal,
but I absolutely love hearing from you. . .
so leave us a comment!
‘til next time,
Janice and Dave
