Anniversary Tea and Sandwiches in Sandwich, MA

While our anniversary has moved since we got married, I still like to celebrate our 'original' anniversary. I don't need an excuse to day trip!

We headed to Sandwich on Cape Cod to have afternoon tea and take in the sea airs. The weather actually cooperated and the earth was in bloom.  

We cruised the colonial (early American) sites, like this grist mill from the revolutionary days that still grinds corn in season to this day. 

It was warm enough I only had to wear three layers. Success.

We had tea at Dunbar Tea Room which is housed in a carriage house of a colonial home from the mid-1700's. We took no time before diving in...

After tea we headed to the Sandwich glass museum to see a glassblowing demonstration. 

Whilst in the neighborhood we came across a turkey vulture plucking at a cute fuzzy thing. Everything's got to eat and he was quite the majestic creature.

Before leaving the cape we stopped at the shore and walked the longest boardwalk in the history of boardwalks:

...finally the Atlantic lay before us. Beautiful, windswept, and cold - as usual!
