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.
Everyone has a favorite, and this recent work by Sydney Hutter is mine:
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!
