DAY 1: Thibaut and I explored the galleries/shops of Falmouth, where we had lunch at the Quarterdeck (broiled scallops/haddock) before heading to our bed & breakfast – Wood’s Hole Passage – in the quaint town of Wood’s Hole. Martha & Julie welcomed us – and we attempted a bike ride, but found that Thibaut’s back tire kept going flat. We ended the night with some shrimp, mussels and clams at a local favorite: Chepoquoit Grill

DAY 2: We awoke to find a strange woman in the back of the B&B. She looked like she was holding a bow and arrow, but later discovered she was assembling weather balloons. Thibaut got some recommendations from Martha as she served us homemade breakfast. I finally found Waldo. We thanked Martha and Jamie for making us feel at home, and headed off to an amazing art show at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, as well as a scenic view at Waquoit Bay Estuary & Park. For an overcast, chilly day – there was still much to do.
