We have been travelling for nearly 10 months from Chile all the way up to USA. Marcos sent an e-mail to our friend Don to see how his summer holiday had gone, and due to the fact that we were in Cape Cod where we know he has spent many a vacation.
Well...Don was arriving to Cape Cod on that exact same day to stay for a long weekend! Now that is a coincidence if there ever was.
So given "destiny" had brought us to the same area of the World and that Don's friends had kindly offered to put us up for a couple of days at their house in Wellfleet, we did a small change of plans (we had already spent 2 days on the Cape and were planing to move on tomorrow) and arranged to meet with Don and the Taute family
Prior to our meeting, and given we didnt have a single piece of clean clothing to wear we spent a couple of hours in the laundry shop (see picture). After the cleaning break we visited "Marconi Beach" which is where Mr. Marconi sent his first telegraph message to Europe way back in time.
Around 5pm we drove to Wellfleet and similar to the meetings of World Leaders the coincidence was closed at the town pier....
Don presented us to his lifelong friends and "caretakers" the Taute's (Rick Junior, and Carol and Rick). What a friendly family! After a few refreshments we tried one of the local restaurants for dinner (The Bookstore) and some of its yummy seafood.
There is no need to say this...but this night (as well as the rest of the nights we stayed), we were spoilt by large amounts of wine and beer which kept us talking well into the night. SO no need to repeat this part for the rest of the days!
