Day 5 & 6: Last day in the Cape & Fenway. Great beach day Friday. Ultimate baseball experience on Saturday. Great way to wrap up our 5th anniversary trip!

Day 4 photos from Cape Cod. This place is great. It is 65-75 degrees all the time and sunny. The people are friendly. And fresh seafood galore. In fact, I think it is dinner time. Lobster roll, here I come.

Day 3 in Boston was a travel day. We drove down and around Cape Cod to our rental in North Truro, near the very end of the cape. On our way, we made a stop in Plymouth to go whale watching and ended up actually seeing a few! We saw Humpback whales, a pod of 150 dolphins and a weird looking sunfish (one lady called it “a manhole cover with fins”). 

Here are photos from our second day in Boston. It was definitely my day as Kelli and I did one of my favorite vacation activities: wander around a city with no plan and a subway pass. We walked the Freedom Trail, rode the T, went a sunset boat cruise of the Charles River, and ended the day with dinner & dessert with an old friend of mine & his new bride in North Boston. It was a great day of exploring an old city with my lovely wife. 

Today, we are off to Cape Cod to visit the beach and whale watching!

Photos from our first day in Boston. These were all taken at a mill we found off Boston Post Road.

It has been a learning experience for me to go into to conversations trying to match my behavior with what I intend to communicate. Too often my actions were not communicating what I truly wanted for my friends, co-workers, or wife. The Harvard Business blog post was helpful to me.
