Sat, July 5, 9:00 meet time -Walk beautiful YarmouthPort (dog friendly)


6A in YarmouthPort is lined with lovely historic homes. We'll walk from the Bank of America down Gingerbread Lane to Thacher Shore Drive that runs west along the water (Barnstable Harbor). We'll turn into Water Street to where the port used to be..for expansive water views. We'll cross the bridge next to Hallets Mill Pond and go as far as you or your dogs decide to go, ending up no farther than Keveney Lane at 6A. The loop could be completed by walking east on 6A back to our cars, but the sidewalk is very narrow and extremely close to the fast moving traffic on 6A.  I will not walk my dog there, so I will head back the way we came, making the round trip of 2.7 miles.  If anyone wants to walk back via 6A, that is an option and is a  shorter total distance.

Bank of America shares a parking lot with another bank, Cape Cod Cooperative Bank and is at the intersection of 6A and Gingerbread Lane, just 0.2 mile east of Willow Street on 6A.  Willow Street is exit 7 off the Mid Cape, Rt 6.

Go to the LEFT of Bank of America, to the parking lot at the back of the bank. Guests are always welcome on walks (never on paddles).

This is on July 4th weekend.

    Great walk with Joyce and Kathy and two well-behaved German shepherds!

    Great to meet Ruth and Kathleen, two totally delightful women who are hard core walkers; the dogs and I had to hustle to keep up with them. Both very flexible and willing to go to the meeting location, even though it was still raining ! But, the skies brightened and the winds decreased and it was an excellent walk.

    I know you both seemed flexible about the start time for the walk this morning, but I did not hear from either of you after I sent an email asking you to verify that a 9:00 meet time was OK with both of you.

    Please post that you will definitely be there at 9:00. You can understand that I don't want to drive over there and find that I am alone at 9:00. Because I do not know either of you, I need to verify that you will be there.

    The weather report is still the same...winds of about 22 mph at 9:00 and 10:00. I'm OK walking in that weather, but know that some people are not.
    Thanks, Joyce

    Will see you two tomorrow and go with the general consensus on the timing. Earlier is fine with me.

    Looks like the weather will be fine for tomorrow's walk. Will email you both later to see if you would like to start the walk earlier...and to confirm that you still plan to go.
