Cape Cod summer

On the east of Boston, from Plymouth on the foot to Province Town on the point, a tail shaped cape is the Cape Cod.
The Cape Cod is a popular vacation place for New Yorker or Bostonian. And the cape has some relationship to US presidents. For example, at the middle of the cape, Hyannis is famous for the summer compound of Kennedy family, while Ex-president Clinton's summer house is in Martha's Vineyard Island.

"The shortage of accommodation is a problem of Hyannis town" The woman who picked me up on the street said. Well, it's true. But I think it's not only for Hyannis. Lodging situation of small town is usually like that, especially in the holiday season.

I found a vacancy at the end of the town. It's a typical American motel which had a swimming pool in back yard. I've seen this kind of motel in suspense movies. Murder would be happen later.

Fortunately, no murder took place. After quick swim, I walked down to the town center. Charming shops are aligned on the main street. And residential area is around the town center. At the end of winding path between ponds of reed and wild ducks, I saw a quiet beach of New England.
