We went down to the Cape and Nantucket for our end of summer Troop 25 trip. Most of us got an early start on Friday and left at 11ish. We beat the traffic and found our way to our second stay at beautiful Camp Greenough in Yarmouthport. Camp Greenough was amazingly tranquil, as only another party of campers was there. We mountain biked around the camp and saw lean-tos, athletic fields, an enormous osprey nest, a huge pond, and looked in an interesting wood shop (more on that in the next post).
After the excitement of catching the ferry out of Hyannis, we landed in beautiful Nantucket. The weather was perfect, and everyone was happy. There were many high-end stores in Nantucket’s historic district. Our fellow shoppers and their Land Rovers seemed more than well-heeled. Our bikes made it safely across and we rode all around Nantucket, from the hills to the coasts and saw their lighthouses and wildlife.
After that, we went back to Cape Cod. We took another bike trip, going all the way to the very tip of the Cape and back to Greenough, along the National Seashore. One member of the troop didn’t hesitate to swim in said potentially shark-infested seashore. Thankfully, he made it out without a bite. The seals bobbed their heads out of the water, and the seashore was visible along every stretch of that ride. We went to Provincetown, and then went home!
