Another Cape Cod getaway...continued

Saturday morning Cheryl and I took a ride down 6-A to Sandwich. We headed to the East End of the Canal where we stopped and had lunch of lobster rolls and French fries. We heard on the radio that there were several dolphins stranded in Wellfleet Harbor. So we changed directions and headed to Wellfleet. By the time we arrived at the harbor the dolphins had just been rescued and were gone..Bummer!!!

Here are a few pictures that I took while at the Harbor.

After leaving the harbor and just down the road we stopped at a gift shop that had lots of mermaid items.

We were also too late to see the humpback whale that had been tangled in line in Chatham Harbor get rescued and released. The news reports stated that the same whale had been rescued last month.

Later in the afternoon we drove to Dennis to Tony's Go Carts to see my granddaughters. My oldest son, his girlfriend Kelley and her sons friend were staying in Dennis for the weekend at Kelley's parent's 2nd home.

Sunday ...we just hung out at my cousins until late afternoon and then we went back to Kelley's parents house in Dennis. We ordered seafood from Captain Frosty's. I enjoyed my shrimp plate. We then headed to Corporation Beach in Dennis to watch the sunset.

The weirdest thing happened before sunset as the sky was starting to darken...a small open area of the sky had a partial rainbow, but the rainbow didn't show up in the photo, but you could see it with the naked eye.

Sorry you missed the dolphins and the whale. The harbor looks really nice, though. I like the horseshoe crab pictures - I haven't seen one of those in years (that's what I get for moving to the midwest). Fun shots of your family.
