Hyannis, Mass (round 2)

We enjoyed the remaining full day out on the Cape.  We started our day with breakfast at this perfect perkinsesque restaurant.  We took a horrible duck tour around Hyannis and the tiny little harbor... the lady that narrated was not super good at her job, but it was something to do.  I got a great new t-shirt and a sweatshirt - both red sox obviously, although now I think I should have gotten at least one piece of Bruins apparel since they are in the Stanley Cup Finals and J is a huge fan.

After the duck tour, we walked through the JFK museum that had lots of good photos of him and the Kennedy family.  There were some beautiful pictures of him & his kids.  After the museum, we ate lunch at a place called the Black Cat Tavern.  It was all pretty good.

We took a harbor tour after that.  The ship we toured in was called the Prudence and it is 100 years old this year.  This tour took us out to see the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport.  It is a beautiful cluster of houses in the middle of a neighborhood and it's beautiful.  We strolled over to the JFK memorial fountain that overlooks the Nantucket Sound.

To end our day, we ate at a place called Tommy Doyle's on Main Street and had a super friendly bartender and the BEST food.  I had homemade mac & cheese with the breadcrumbs over the top and Justin ordered a grilled cheese & tomato/basil soup.  We arrived back at the hotel and Justin & his dad went to the bar and watched the bruins take game six.  I went to bed early.

The drive back to Boston was quick and painless.  We returned the car and I felt at home again.
