Perhaps the best known museum in Sandwich is their Glass Museum. With displays of over 6,000 pieces and glass blowing demonstrations, it is a must see.

After our visit to the museum, we walk historic downtown Sandwich.

The first photo is the entrance to a restaurant, and this brick building is the library. It is wonderful and the people there were great.

The next photo is a typical Cape Cod house: natural shingles all around except for the front, which is painted sideboard. Of course many of the larger homes were painted, but 90% of what we see have painted fronts only - smart people in Cape Cod!

We finish today with a walk out to the beach and the famous boardwalk. It is indeed lovely as I think you'll agree.

The pictures are stunning; the glass vases doubly so!
