Hyannis "Open Streets" Day

Today we decided to drive a few miles west of Dennis Port, where we're currently staying, to Hyannis "Village" (really a town) for a look-around. When we arrived we discovered they were having an "Open Streets" Day. As the link shows, the Open Streets project aims to encourage towns to seal off a street to traffic for the day and invite folks to set up stalls, play, do yoga, etc in a community-spirit sort of way. This seemed to be going well at Hyannis.

The local Fire Brigade had come with an enormous fire truck with a massive extending ladder which I photographed - but I decided on this photo for my blip showing the highly polished back of the engine's door mirror. If you look closely at the photo (especially viewed large) you can see a line-up of kids having their photo taken.

We spent an interesting hour in the JFK Museum (Hyannis being the long-time home of the Kennedy clan). Outside the museum (see extra) was a novel take on a "mobile home" - actually a Garden Shed (wow - how posh is that?!) being raffled in aid of the museum funds. We declined to buy a $15 ticket - it might have been a bit tricky to take home to the UK if we won... ;-)
