Usually takes me 16 minutes at the very least to get from here to bus stop on rt 28. It took 10 minutes today and I was walking slowly LOL go figure!
saw a key looked like the kind you get in the mail that says it will start your new car ha ha ha
figured it was safe to stand near this horse crossing sign- just hoped a horse didn't show up.
the bus! funny how those signs do not photograph. It did say Hyannis!
on the bus I had my Medicare card ready to prove I was old enough for the dollar fare. But all she asked was how old I was. Told her I was born in 1948- too early in the day for math. She told me once in Hyannis I could get a Senior Card. yippee LOL
Photos from the inside of the bus are pretty low quality but I managed a few- first we passed the house up on stilts in Harwich that is having a basement and new foundation installed.
this is the new, not completed bike bridge on rt 134.
oh forgot to mention a man got on in Yarmouth area and sat diagonally across from me and we were chatting. Turns out we are the same age- he went to Dennis-Yarmouth but knew a classmate of mine that moved away from Chatham in 1962. He also recognized me and said we were friends on facebook! LOL
Main street stroll
best I make no comments LOL
Little Miss cupcake- a vacant store and a store that looks like what used to be Charlbets.oh and Bellas ( there is one in Chatham) and Kandy Korner
Many thrift shops- this one was open. The Federated Church one was closed. glad I didn't bring any donations with me!
Love catching someone taking a photo!
Nessie ladles LOL. Daily Paper- what's the name of the breakfast place on West Main then? And my favorite Tibet store closed. And no sign of Tim's books- did I miss it or is it gone?
and Joke Shoppe for some reason I thought was at the entrance to Hyannis from Yarmouth on rt 28
Harley shop and Beech Tree Cantina- looking for a leafless beech tree. Too soon- still heavily shaded back there.
some views of these birds made from recycled parts. Last year I thought they were made from soda cans. guess not. Never seem to be there for the right lighting.
JFK museum and Cape Cod Baseball League Hall of Fame.
Hyannis HyArts Cultural district
The ride back. Wondering if they announced boarding of the bus at 11:30am. Had to ask. Told gate 7 so I just went there and boarded. A couple from England were in front of me. They sat all the way back. So did I but I sat sideways. Turns out they were from Cheshire. A very attractive male sat in the far right corner. Not sure if he spoke but when the bus lurched after a chatter box got off in Dennis the guy's bottle of water flew to the floor and I grabbed it. If I were the flirtatious type I would have struck up a conversation. The chatterbox it seems was a member of Baybridge in Hyannis. Reminded me of a music store customer John Simpson. Often wonder what happened to him. He talked a mile a minute about his bills and health issues and aimed it all at the couple from England. wow they got an earful. The bus driver jokingly asked if he was bothering the riders. LOL So I guess he is a regular. Interesting nonetheless. Learned from the driver that older homes from the 1700s if they have a white chimney with it painted black at the top- that was an indicator that the family who resided there was in favor of the King of England at the time. Not something that endeared you to your neighbors but it protected your property so to speak.
This looks like Bass River
House on stilts on ride back
It was a nice feeling to know that Massachusetts cares enough about the people of Cape Cod to offer a ride for a dollar to just about anywhere once you understand their schedules and the names of the buses. LOL
