Today's Activities Include: We Try to Go to Woods Hole

Every year, my sister's family does all kinds of educational outings while we mostly just hang out at the beach (in previous years), or the pool and/or cul-de-sac of cabins for biking and scootering this year. This year, A. and I went along for the trip to Woods Hole.

The first attempted stop was the aquarium, which is closed on Mondays. The second stop was more successful; the kids got to touch all kinds of sea life in a tank (hermit crab type of stuff). The third stop was Captain Kidd's, where we ate a lot of food, but which was not air conditioned. It was a little muggy, but iced tea helps a lot.

We stopped to buy souvenirs, because my nieces have pink hats with Cape Cod and a shark and a bite out of the brim and A. wanted one. Alas, we found pink hats and shark bit hats but not pink shark bit hats. Fortunately, one of her cousins was amenable to trading her hat for whatever she wanted to buy in a shop. She'll eventually figure out I'll buy her anything she wants without having to trade away her stuff, but in the meantime, we were all happy.
