Pictures of the house and grounds are from yesterday afternoon, when I got to their house. Nancy is the gardener, and Diane is a great cook.

This morning, I borrowed Nancy's kayak and we traversed the Long Pond which is 57 acres. There are a few families of Mallard ducks but also some Canada geese around. There are a couple of public beaches for those who don't live right on the "lake". Everything is pond on the Cape! Nancy and Diane owned another house on the lake but it had two stories and they didn't want that for future years.

We had lunch in Hyannis at Tugboats and I had a lobster quesadilla - liked it, too! It was on the harbor so we watched the boats come in and out. I learned what a salt marsh is some of the history of the area from a very knowledgeable Nancy! I was taken by the windmill we stopped at - there are at least 3 others intact on the Cape, as salt production was big business in the early days!
