"Jack and Bobby - Brothers first" was a new exhibition at the JF Kennedy Hyannis Museum . Together they changed the nation. From their boyhood summers in Hyannis Port to the glory days of JFK's Presidency, Jack and Bobby were always brothers first. It was a poignant reminder of the importance of friendship and family unity.
Cape Cod is a wonderful summer playground for the rich and famous, as well as the not so rich. In the 1930's toward the end of prohibition ten men were arrested in a rum smuggling ring near the coast of Cape Cod. After posting bail they reclaimed the boat and raced out of the harbour. Twenty Harbour Police and Coast Guard boats kept watch near the tip of Cade Cod. Eventually the motor boat was spotted and the chase was on. The boat sped into Provincetown Harbour where it was abandoned and the rum runners fled on foot never to be found. Twenty BOAT Hand-crafted Cape Cod Rum is now handcrafted in Truro Vineyards, near Wellfleet.
We stayed at Eagle Wing Motel at Eastham. It was a central location for exploring charming historic fishing villages and harbours. We drove to Race Point at the tip of the sand-spit but it was absolutely bleak, and the wind unforgiving. We returned to Provincetown to warm up in one of the quirky bistros.
