Trip Report Falmouth in the Fall

Jump to last reply

Falmouth in the Fall-a week on the Cape

Day One-Thanks to a gift from good friend we enjoyed a timeshare week in Falmouth, Mass. We aren't timeshare people but appreciated being at Briarwood Resort just north of Falmouth off Gifford St. www.briarwoodresort.net Nothing fancy but suitable and roomy . Distance was 85 miles from home (Watertown) crossing over the big Bourne Bridge...15 miles south of the bridge. And arriving about the same time was our family from Medford for an overnight: DS and partner with DGD plus just adopted newborn DGS! DS picked a lively place on a Saturday night: Quohog Republic Bar (www.quohogrepublic.com) Our family had samplers of many delicious seafood selections. Noisy but fun.

Day Two-Off to the seashore for the day. We went to Menaunhant Beach, not the closest but one chosen for easy access from parking. www.oncape.com/beaches/menauhant-beach) No question that the Cape has many beaches where you can walk the shoreline or relax with a book. Nice breeze and a little cool. Later swimming at the resort pool which DGD loves. Dinner at Oysters Two not far on Rt. 28 featured a special seafood cassarole. Recommended: www.oysterstoo.com After family departed in the evening we watched TV. Anyone else enjoying "Last Tango in Halifax?"

Day Three-Rainy day. Trip over to Hyannis to see the John F. Kennedy museum. This was a favorite vacation place for President Kennedy and family. Brief virtual tour at http://jfkhyannismuseum.org. The President loved to sail and also just walk along the beach. Our lunch was very nice taste of oysters dressed at the Naked Oyster on Main St. across from the park. Supplied by their own oyster farm. Recommended:
www.nakedoyster.com In the park was a man carving a large merry-go-round horse with a chainsaw...is there a name for this kind of art? DW insisted on going to the mall www.capecodmall.com where I waited patiently. That night a DVD "Wendy and Julie"...too moody, didn't much like. We brought several movies but the resort has a wide selection.

Day Four-Mostly relaxing and reading today. Didn't want to do much walking as DW had a lame leg. But we did browse in shops in Falmouth and picked up some items. Lunch was at Country Fare Restaurant by a local (sandwiches) plus yogurt at TisBerry. Dinner was left overs...including more of the pineapple upside down cake left by family.
