Nova Scotia Road Trip! - 2002

34 hilt! Tomorrow starts the Scallop Festival and 50,000 people are expected to descend on the Cape for the weekend — we are so glad that we have had our relatively uncrowded visit to this wonderful place. P LYMOUT H Day 9 - We enjoyed a Harrigan ’ s breakfast again before leaving South Wellfleet on our way to Boston and environs. We had saved the Audubon Sanctuary across the street from our motel to visit before we left but it turned out to be uninviting because of a large free per person. We figured we had really seen the same kinds of habitats and ecosystems anyway so we left without visiting. Route 6A was our route off the Cape so that we could see all the little towns that are strung on that necklace of highway like quaint beads. The villages are all quite small and just like New England towns should be. Lots of little antique shops, boutiques, eateries and ice cream parlors in addition to the post offices and churches. Some of these were on the water and others were more inland — but all were lovely and we loved seeing them. We did not stop in any of them except to get gas and visit the bathrooms. Sagamore Bridge carried us over the canal and onto the mainland on our way to Plymouth. We did stop here to visit Plymouth Rock and to view the replica of the Mayflower as well as the National Monument to the Forefathers and the Monument to the Pilgrim Mothers.
