Today was spent exploring the area of Hyannis on Cape Cod. Yesterday, we saw a yummy looking breakfast place called "Keltic Kitchen", so we decided to try it. We weren't the only ones there! Apparently this place is a huge hit with the locals because the place was packed and we had to wait half an hour to be seated. Luckily, they had a gift shop where you could look around while you waited. The gift shop had all sorts of Celtic gifts and foods. Finally, we were able to eat. It was very good and we want to go back before we leave, except next time we want to go earlier in the morning to try to avoid the 9am rush.
For the next hour or so we were at the local laundromat. Yay, this was our last laundromat visit! I can't wait to be back home with our own washer and dryer. The laundromat was not in a very good part of town, but it did make for some good people watching fun.
For the last part of the day, we went to visit Wendy's friend from high school. They lived in a *very* nice part of the cape with a huge house and beautiful views (if you find trees beautiful like I do). They cooked us dinner and we chatted for a long period of time. It was great to meet them all. The wife is runner and I've been invited to go on a run through the woods tomorrow morning. We'll see if I can get up that early!
What a fantastic visit with Rob, Julie, their four kids and two dogs! Rob and I were friends in high school and walked together at graduation. I hadn't seen him in probably 20 years and had never met his wife. They were incredibly gracious and made a fantastic dinner for us. The kids were so confident and outgoing! I loved that. The dogs were gorgeous and though you can't tell from the photo I posted, Duke is more the size of a great Dane than a doberman. He's all legs, and still growing! These are my kind of people and I'm so glad I reached out and asked to visit. :-)
