A glimpse of New England . . . Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Today you get to see one of our favorite places on our trip . . . Sandwich, Massachusetts on Cape Cod.

Welcome to Sandwich
First stop, find a place for lunch . . . the Bee Hive Tavern (recommended by Erin @ I heart New England) . . . It was perfect . . . we had great clam chowder. 

Check out the bird wallpaper . . . it was fabulous!

Next . . . the board walk . . . (thank you, Erin)

We walked right out to the beach . . . Beautiful!
and dipped our feet in the Atlantic Ocean.

The sand was rocky; and we both found a heart shaped rock.

Hoxie House, a saltbox built in 1637, probably the oldest house on Cape Cod,
in original condition and location, with no plumbing or electricity

Dexter's Grist Mill built in 1654 to grind corn and still makes cornmeal today

 More New England architecture . . .

First Church of Christ in Sandwich


Wouldn't you love to go to church here?
Sign dated 1848
Still preaching, with two services every Sunday morning

Next stop . . . Yarmouthport, Massachusetts, another favorite on Cape Cod.
Hope you're enjoying a visit to New England.
