Cape Cod Day 6

Today we were up early to drive to Barnstable for a Whale Watching Tour. It looked like it was shaping up to be a pretty nice day when we shoved off.

Despite my face in this picture, we were having a great time as we headed up the coast towards Boston.IMG_0850And then a gale hit. Well it seemed like a gale to me. There was wind, rain, waves, darkness, and a lot of sea-spray. But I manage well in all weathers.

By the time the captain broadcasted “Sea conditions are rapidly deteriorating” we were all ready to say goodbye to Nile and take shelter inside the boat. A cup of hot  tea and a few card games later, we were back on dry land and heading to home to pack .

We leave tomorrow morning. It was a great trip. GREAT. Cape Cod exceed my expectations. What a perfect summer escape for a couple of Canadians, seeking sand, sun, and seafood.
