August 17, 2020 – Cape Cod – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  Cape Cod is a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean off the southeastern corner of Massachusetts. It is a popular summer destination known for the laid-back lifestyle. Cape Cod draws tourists for its beaches, lighthouses, ponds, villages, and the seafood shacks and restaurants.

We had a relaxing Adventure to Cape Cod today.  We were able to visit:  the Green Briar Nature Center, Highfield Hall and Gardens, Nobska Lighthouse, and Nobska Beach.  We have visited all of these locations previously, although it was Wilma’s first for several.  These locations included:  gardens, a fabulous lighthouse, and a lovely beach.  Unfortunately the Lighthouse was under some construction, but we still enjoyed our visit.  I decided to do a photo collage of all of these four stops combined all in one!  If you have any questions about the photographs, or locations feel free to contact me on the contact form, or in the comments.  A beautiful day with wonderful company (Rating:  4).


Throwback Adventure – Green Briar Nature Center

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In April 2014 Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Green Briar Nature Center in Sandwich, Massachusetts.  The Green Briar Nature Center is located adjacent to the well known Briar Patch of Thornton Burgess’s stories.  As you may know Burgess was a native of Sandwich, and is famous for his books, including Peter the Rabbit.  The Center is located along Smiling Pond, and includes interpretive trails and a wildflower garden.  The Center also offer nature programs, and contains a “jam kitchen”.

We had an enjoyable Adventure to the Green Briar Nature Center.  We were visiting in off-season, so had the entire Center to ourselves.  It was brown time of year in New England, but we spotted several tulips, and purple flowers on our walk.  I especially recall relaxing on the dock, and the boys enjoying a dip in the water, almost sending me right off the dock.  We relaxed and wandered around the premises, and found ourselves a bit disappointed that the jam kitchen was closed for the season.  I can imagine that this Center must be quite stunning when the wildflower gardens are in bloom, so we might just have to visit again.  Glad we were able to explore the Green Briar Nature Center (Throwback Adventures  will not always be rated).
