On Saturday Mary and I spent our last full day on Cape Cod wandering around in the Village Of Woods Hole which lies at the extreme southwest tip of Cape Cod. It’s also the place we caught the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard back on June 9th for our one week stay there. The day was mostly cloudy with temperature’s in the high 70’s, humid but with a decent breeze.
The first stop was at the Woods Hole Historical Museum. For a smaller museum, it was very well done and its attendant David was most knowledgeable about its contents and the history of Woods Hole.
Here are three photos from the museum…
Unfortunately, Woods Hole no longer looks like this.
Fortunately, old boat-building skills still can be found.
The equivalent of Photography Today circa 1894.

Then on to the Wood Hole Oceanographic Institute famous for its deep-sea explorations of the world’s oceans. They had a very informative display about the sinking and ultimate discovery and photography in 1985 of the ill-fated ocean liner which sunk on its maiden voyage in 1912. If you are not familiar with the Titanic story, here’s a Wikipedia informational link…
The Alvin was a deep-submergence vehicle no longer in service.

We then wandered though the village and ended up at an aquarium. To see the other 35 photos I took, click this link…

This day concluded our 16 day stay of Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod. It was a most delightful and enjoyable stay. Yesterday (Sunday) we drove the motorhome back to my son’s home in Ivoryton, Connecticut. When we arrived here it was VERY hot and humid. The weather wimp…that’s me..said “DOUBLE YUK!”.
Mary will fly out of Hartford, Connecticut tomorrow for a July 4th family reunion while I stay here and enjoy my son’s wife and three children…my grand-kids. Mary will return on July 13th to resume our travels in New England.
