We take a break at the Black Cat Tavern, which offers valet parking and a view of the harbor along with a tasty lunch!
Everything’s better with a view of the water.
After lunch we visit a few of the “art shanties” set up in the park along the waterfront in Hyannis. I get waylaid in the red shanty when photographer Beth Higgins (warning: a website with beautiful photos, but annoyingly loud music) starts asking questions about my camera. We talk equipment for a while as I admire her work and that of her shanty partner, “Sea Hag” Sue Patev. I really want to bring one of the Sea Hag’s shell wreaths home with me, but the thought of getting it safely back to Minnesota is a serious deterrent.
There is a functioning harbor here, although these days it mostly serves recreational fisherman and youngsters playing pirate.
Not a bad place to be on a hot summer day.
