We had the day off

My plan was to check out a new playground on Rt 149 in West Barnstable after reading an article about it in the Cape Cod Times. Unfortunately I did not catch the part about it not being completed-BUMMER! It is a beautiful playground and for a terrific cause so we will try to keep in touch with it's progress. Check it out here: Luke's Love.
I decided to head over to Yummy Goods after a friend hooked me to it on Facebook. It is a cute little place with some fantastic items. I think I may be returning for some out of the ordinary Christmas Ideas. Check them out on the web and Facebook.
We next took a ride up Rt 6A, which I haven't done in forever, and found the Barnstable-West Barnstable Elementary School which if I remember right had a cool Castle like playground out back.

After running around out back to look I was happy to tell the kids there were 2 super cool playgrounds. The newer metal style and the Castle one I remember. Wendy-Think back to hide and seek in the dark when we were like 19ish..... Oh the memories.
This slide was pretty funny buried in the hill. It was an excellent time and we played and ran and got some injuries. What fun is it if I am chasing you and I bash my shoulder into the tunnel I am really too big for or smash my head on a wooden beam-LOL! Oh they found it hysterical!

After we ate our picnic lunch and headed back down Rt 6A I spotted this flash of red in someones yard and had to pull over and get a picture. Fall in it's glory!

I bribed the girls at the Penny candy store in Centerville to let me take their picture below which is on the corner of Rt 28 in Centerville by the cemetery. While walking to this display I learned a lot about cemeteries. Like did you know those people live there? Yes, when you die you go to live in the cemetery and people plant flowers for when they come to visit.
