CCC On Tour: Cocktails on Cape Cod Part 3 The Final Ride

My last full day on the Cape, my sisters, Lee and Annie, and Andrea, my nephew’s fiancé partook in one of the most popular tourist attractions on the Lower Cape – The Shining Sea Bikeway. It’s a 21.4-mile round trip ride from North Falmouth to Wood Hole.  Named in honor of local girl, Katherine Lee Bates and her famous song (does “from sea to shining sea” ring any bells?), the perfectly paved, perfectly flat bike path hugs the shore along the Vineyard Sound. The ride provides glorious views past marshes, beaches, and cranberry bogs. It doesn’t get more Capey than that!

Is it cocktail time yet?  YES! The best part of the ride is ending at The Landfall Restaurant.  Great foods, great drinks, a perfect place to rest before the 10-mile ride home.

OMG! The lobster flag and a SAAB?  WASPs welcome.

The Landfall is such an easy cocktail place. My sister, Annie, nephew, Marlow and his fiancé,  Andrea enjoy Bloody Mary’s and pomegranate martinis (responsibly of course)!

It’s always so sad to say good-bye to Cape Cod. But never fear, dear readers, I will return with more adventures to share. Thank you for being such a fabulous partner in my journeys! XOXO!
