Cape Cod Day 6… antiques, cocktails and dinner on the water.

 

Because you know no road trip with my husband is complete without a visit to an antique store…

I’d managed to make it almost 6 full days without one, but my luck ran out.

He scoured the stalls…

 

IMG_9356

 

Thoroughly perused the cases…

Chuckled at the creepy mid century Santas.

 

 

And then….

 

IMG_9357

 

Bought a folding freight sled.

And if that wasn’t bad enough? The damned thing was from Maine!

Jesus wept.

 

IMG_9359

 

And I drank.

It was the only appropriate response.

 

 

So we ended the afternoon at a wonderful waterfront restaurant…

 

IMG_9362

 

Called Fisherman’s View.

Where I worked my way down the cocktail list.

Have you ever had Casoni 1814 in a mixed drink? Ooh la la!

I hadn’t… but will be looking for it soon.

 

 

Food?

Yes, they had that too. But since it was late afternoon and I wouldn’t be cooking when we got back, we opted to stay and wait for the dinner menu…

 

 

And watched the non stop crabbing…

As well as some tugs escorting a barge through the Cape Cod Canal.

Crab cake appetizer for me….

 

IMG_9370

 

Butternut squash and apple bisque for the other half.

And as evening rolled around…

Neither one of us managed to get past that night’s specials.

 

IMG_9371

 

Scallops Spaghettini for me…

 

IMG_9378

 

Beef tenderloin for the hubs.

 

IMG_9377

 

Both were superb…. and I cursed the the fact that we hadn’t found this place earlier in our trip.

Replete…

We took a short walk around the harbor.

 

IMG_9387

 

Enjoyed the sunset.

 

IMG_9391

 

And the view of that wonderful restaurant lit up in the distance.

Back at the resort condo, the husband was knee deep in the impeachment coverage on MSNBC.

A guaranteed way to kill my buzz…

 

IMG_9410

 

So I escaped upstairs to my nook overlooking the living room to read….

And (not quite) drunkenly play with my phone.

Cape Cod Day 6… Sandwich Glass Museum oddities.

 

Day 6 found us in getting a late start in Sandwich.

At a museum filled with glass.

 

IMG_9351

 

For 62 years beginning in 1825, Deming Jarvis’s glass factory put this little Massachusetts town on the map.

 

IMG_9306

 

The history of glass was on display…

 

IMG_9307

 

And some of it was fascinating.

 

IMG_9308

 

Parts of the museum are interactive…

 

IMG_9313

 

And we timed it just right to witness a glass blowing demonstration…

 

IMG_9315

 

Which I thought I’d videoed, but apparently didn’t.

 

IMG_9350

 

Either way, the chandelier hanging overhead was impressive. Though I’d hate to have to dust it.

 

IMG_9333

 

Glass..

 

IMG_9334

 

Glass.

 

IMG_9332

 

And more glass.

Well, what did you expect…

 

 

Yes!

 

IMG_9323

 

Chickens!

 

IMG_9324

 

Lots…

 

IMG_9325

 

And lots of glass chickens.

 

IMG_9327

 

Clearly they knew I was coming.

 

IMG_9343

 

They were salts…

 

IMG_9344

 

And paperweights…

 

IMG_9347

 

Art glass…

 

IMG_9348

 

And breast pipes.

 

 

Yes.

 

IMG_9349

 

There was even a bosom shell….

Which I’m sure was very comfortable.

There was also a lily foot shoe..

 

IMG_9340

 

And the chance to have dinner with a dead man.

Who could pass that up?
