One day trip we did while in Cape Cod, was lunch in the adorable town of Sandwich (spot A on the map) and then a long bike ride up and down the Cape Cod Canal (spot B on the map).
We got a sandwich to go at a local shop and brought it to some benches along Shawme Lake.
What a great snacking spot, am I right? A turtle swam near us while we ate. Truly a delight.
After our food break we decided to walk around the town of Sandwich. We walked along their Main Street looking at cute shops. They have a surprising number of renovated churches.. that still look like churches.. but aren’t churches. It’s a little odd. As I sang to my parents, it looks like “we’ve got trouble, right here in River City!” You probably don’t get that reference, because you’re normal and I’m weird.
After our walk around town it was time to get to the Cape Cod Canal to get our bike-on! We parked on a side lot along the Scenic Highway, Route 6, closer to the Sagamore Bridge side.
We ended up biking almost the entire length of the canal and back. We thought the rail-bridge was where the path ended, but according to the maps, we could’ve headed just a tad more south ending at the Maritime Academy. Oh well. We still got a great workout that day.
While we were doing a photoshoot next to the Sagamore Bridge, a tanker(?) came through, so I had to share.
The Bourne Bridge looked pretty similar to the Sagamore bridge.. and I was getting tired, so I didn’t take as many photos. I did snap this shot of the rail-bridge (below), dressed in it’s holiday best.
Great exercise, beautiful weather, and free activities make for an awesome day.
