After yesterday’s day in camp, we were ready to get out and about today. Mid-morning we began making our way east on US-44 toward Plymouth. First stop was at a Dunkin’ Donuts for coffee and Boston Kreme donuts.


Then we went in search of geocaches. Along the way we discovered a special place, The Parting Ways Cemetery, the final resting place for four African-American Revolutionary War veterans. our visit was enhanced by the appearance of Mike, the caretaker of the area. He was a treasure trove of information about the site and the area.

Eventually we made our way into Plymouth and found a parking place. Hoping for a good seafood meal, we chose the Cabby Shack and we delighted with some incredibly rich New England Clam Chowder bot to mention the delicious Crab Cakes and the wonderfully fried Clam Strips!


After a walk along the Plymouth waterfront we headed back stopping for groceries. Then this evening we hosted our friends Ben and Lynda for dinner here at the campground. We had the steaks to grill over a charcoal fire. They brought the wine then we discovered we had no corkscrew and had to prevail on the good graces of a camping neighbor! But all in all it was a most salubrious evening and we took no pictures!
