On Tuesday, Gynn was in Wareham working at her boss’ home office. I took the Kiddo shopping at Borders (Monster Manual III!) and Wal-Mart, and then we went to Buzzard’s Bay to walk along the Cape Cod Canal.
We parked at the Cape Cod Central Railroad station.
There’s construction going on at that end of the canal path, so we entered through a temporary walkway that took us by the National Marine Life Center.
We stopped in at their education center and gift shop to have a look. The facility’s primary purpose is to serve as an animal hospital for marine mammals and turtles. They are also under construction, so they only have one patient at the moment, an injured diamondback terrapin.
They also had a sand table filled with shells that the Kiddo enjoyed digging in.
Outside, we got a nice view of the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge, and then walked along the canal.
Here’s another shot of the bridge showing the canal:
Kiddo was in a great mood the whole time, and really enjoyed his walk. He was especially fascinated by bicycles and dogs that passed us by.
We delivered a sandwich to Gynn and then had lunch at Red Robin (Balloon! Kiddo’s favorite thing in the whole world!) while Gynn finished up her work. We went to see a Cape Cod Baseball League game in Hyannis that night.
Today, Gynn took the Kiddo to Playgroup at the Mashpee Public Library in the morning, and he had appointments in the afternoon, so I didn’t end up taking him out during the day. In the evening, we went out for Chinese food, and then went to another local landmark, Four Seas Ice Cream in Centerville.
Tomorrow I’m taking him out early in the morning. Not sure where yet. We’ll see how the weather is.
