Cape Cod: Day 4 - last day!

Our flight didn't leave until 6:30 that evening so we still wanted to make sure we made the most of our last day out on the Cape and in Boston.  We started off spending some time in Yarmouth which was the town our bread and breakfast was in.  Here is a picture of our lovely B&B (and yes...every time I say "B&B" I think of the potters...)


Yarmouth has a lovely 800 foot boardwalk that we wanted to make sure we saw before we left.  It was a tad windy, but we powered through and really enjoyed starting the morning off there...

Next we headed back up the Cape to check out another beach and lighthouse...maybe this was in Eastham? I really can't remember...but it was beautiful!

we finally said goodbye to the Cape and the pretty beaches and headed back to make 2 more stops in Boston before our flight.  First up...Bunker hill...

there was sign that said you could climb to the top of the tower, and the friendly lady inside made it seem fun, "You can climb if you want to." she said with a big smile on her face.  and it seemed like everyone else was doing it.  So I'm sure me, who ran a 1/2 marathon a few weeks before would be able to handle whatever it took to climb to the top

....WOAH! climbing 294 stairs is way different then pacing yourself for 13.1 miles.  climbing 294 stairs in 2 year old target flats that is the equivalent to walking on paper essentially when people are lined up behind you wondering why you are walking so slow...people who have on hiking boots and backpack on their backs and are from Europe and make you feel like a fat American...it wasn't the "most fun part of the trip" to say the least...but we did it!

Our last stop of the trip was to see the USS Constitution.  I think we regretting saving this for the last day and the very last minutes of our trip b/c we would have loved to spend more time in the museum and on the boat.  but, we loved getting to see what we did and it was a great end to our trip!


thanks for putting up with all my trip posts and all my pictures!  It was a great trip!

Your stair climbing adventure makes me think of climbing up Diamond Head. All the Japanese tourists made me feel like a giant! And the person holding up our progress? A teenager working a crossword puzzle while she walked. Crazy girl.
