Hyannis Harbor

Being on the Cape again was a dream came true for me! We arrived in Hyannis in the late afternoon before sunset and the last ferry to Nantucket didn't arrive for at least another hour or so. Perfect opportunity to get a hot steaming cup of Dunkin' Donut coffee and walk around the harbor soaking in the fresh air and peaceful scenery.

Not wanting to get on the island too late, we opted to take the fast Hy-Line ferry rather than the much slower (albeit also much cheaper) Steamship Authority ferry. We also decided to dock our car in the parking lot in Hyannis instead of taking it over with us to the island to save some money and also because Nantucket is small enough to discover on bikes. Martha's Vineyard however will be another story!

So ... the coffee was delicious and kept my hands warm. The sunset and harbor were a welcome retreat from a busy weekend in Boston.

Will upload more pics from Nantucket soon!
