Meander: To move aimlessly and idly without fixed direction. (Maybe, but we always have a certain direction in mind.) or: To follow a winding and turning course. I think that definition is more like it.
On an expedition to explore new places, typically we set a place as a goal to start, and wind our way back turning down whatever random street we choose. I fear I have created a monster in my recent “let’s go here” suggestions. It wasn’t even 8:30 AM on Sunday when my husband asked, “Where are we going today?”, and once we returned home, he wanted to know what next week’s destination would be. I have some places in mind, and so far have stayed along the shore, but I do know there is much more out there, inland and shoreside. (Suggestions welcomed.)
So, meander we did around the Hyannis and Hyannisport sections of Barnstable, driving down side roads along the coast. In a certain Hyannisport neighborhood, there are signs everywhere to “suggest” you do not drive here, and buses definitely cannot go here. We avoided streets that were marked private, but did venture down this one that suggested we don’t, and its location will not be identified. We did turn around when we arrived at the sign that told us to do so, respecting the privacy of the property owners.
There is so much natural beauty to capture and share.
My shot of the street is through the car window (tints, boo), as are the other house shots here; sometimes it’s the only way to get the shot while moving.
I particularly liked this fence, and would have preferred to back up and get the full impact, but it is such a nice Cape Cod scene, that I’m happy with this. Notice the fence reflected in the hood of the car.
Unique. What else could you say? The tower rears up as you come along the bend in either direction. The house itself is quite fun, but is overshadowed by whatever this thing is. (It’s for sale if anyone wants a new house.)
The floats are all lined up and ready to go at the yacht club.
I wonder if the summer residents ever see the club in its winter state.
This was quite a delightful find at the end of one street. The sign says it all: “Hidden Gem. Sea Street Snack Bar.”
