Tour 2004 - Day 4
We gathered at Union Baptist church and traveled to Hyannis, MA with grand beach plans. Within the hour it became apparent that we could not outrun the Nor’easter which was parked directly on the Cape. We lunched and shopped in Hyannis, many bought sweatshirts, raincoats and souvenirs. Our alternate beach plans included a tour of the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory (we all got 2 free bags of chips), and a trip to “Cuffy’s”, a bargain t-shirt/sweatshirt store (which got a good bit of our business, especially those sweatshirts, since it was cold with gale force winds! We went to our seafood feast at Sesuit Harbor Café (our own private party). The menu included unlimited lobster, clams, shrimp, steak skewers, corn on the cob, potato salad (to die for), cole slaw, with brownies and ice cream for dessert. We didn’t let the weather dampen our spirits, and enjoyed a cozy party atmosphere as we celebrated Stephanie Goldberg’s 18th birthday. The group once again spontaneously broke into song as we fellowshipped with love and laughter. The day may have begun with bad weather, but it turned out to be the “Perfect Storm”.
