Today Shana I and took a little drive to Sandwich Massachusetts, the oldest town on Cape Cod and one of the oldest in the United States. Some of Shana's local acquaintances had suggested that it was one of the better towns to live in on Cape Cod. We took a quick peek at it and had to agree. It's as cute as the proverbial bug's ear, has a lot of outdoor activities near to hand, and is very happily situated. It's equally close to Shana's mom (in Falmouth), Yarmouth, and Plymouth (two towns where Shana is likely to work). It's convenient to most other places we would need or want to visit on the cape. So far it's our front runner. It fills all of Shana's criteria - she really wants to live in the Cape in a small town on the water and it's about 20,000 people on the water. I like the looks of the place and the available outdoor attractions, but it has no public transportation at all. Nearest T stop is 18 miles (apparently there is some political problem making T service to the cape impossible). No local bus service, and nearest bus service to Boston seems to be in Bourne, about five miles away.
In other news: Shana's mother is still recovering well and is hoping to back in her own home on Saturday. I'll be baking a few items for her freezer tomorrow, then back to Oklahoma city in time to hit the ground running Monday.
