Since we were in the area we thought we’d check it out.
The Hall however, had other ideas and was locked up tight.
But there were twigs.
Lots and lots….
Cleverly wound twigs.
Twigs you could walk through.
Really big twigs.
Respect the twigs.
There was also a sunken garden….
That was mostly dead since it was the middle of November.
But it had whimsical birds on a polka dot tree in the middle, so that more than made up for it.

Yes, it was a banner visit.
Good thing there were twigs so it wasn’t a complete waste of time.
Blah, blah, blah… I know, you’re getting bored and are silently screaming for food.
Our last meal in Cape Cod ended up being at the Stomping Grounds Grille in Buzzards Bay.
And while buzzards aren’t usually the best dinner companions…
This place looked promising.
It was basically a lovely old home…
Retro fitted to a restaurant/bar.
And while I was walking around…
I discovered a theme.
A rock and roll theme….
And when I saw Jerry Garcia on the shelf?
I felt right at home.
See? My kind of place…
The cocktail list made me smile and order a few.
As we chatted with the very personable bartender who told me there was a turntable in the back room with an album collection…. and we could play anything we liked.
We were having such a good time I almost forgot to take pictures of the food, but here’s their stellar broccoli cheese soup. Soooo good.
Secret ingredient? Nutmeg.
I’m afraid I don’t even remember what the husband had…. but here’s my crab cake burger with side spinach salad and cole slaw.
