It was a beautiful day and we took advantage of it. We put our bikes to good use today by first taking a short ride to the Brewster Country Store. It is an icon of this area and we love it. The next stop was the Brewster Ladies Library to get info about downloading books to my Nook and iPad. From there we rode to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and pedaled into Orleans. Along the way we passed Cobies (for ice cream) and Nickerson State Park, where we spent many a vacation. Rock Harbor is another favorite, so we rode done there and admired the boats. The morning's charters were just coming in and, judging by the sea gulls following, there was plenty of fish. After wandering around Orleans we came upon the Nauset Grill. It is a new burger and sandwich shop that only opened in May. Our lunch was delicious, especially the onion rings! Our total ride today was 17.4 miles, which brings our total here at the Cape to about 41 miles so far.
The rest of the afternoon found us at the campground. I did laundry and got that out of the way before dinner at home.
Gorgeous weather, sunny, 70°.
