Dear Tour Guest:
On behalf of American Landscape Tours, Jim Zoppo and I would like to thank you for being part of our “Hydrangeas and Old Cape Cod” tour. While we were able to dodge most of the rain, we were not able to escape the heat & humidity. It certainly was a hot one. Thanks to Simpson Spring there was plenty of ice-cold Spring Water available.
It was very nice of Heritage Gardens and their Director of Horticulture Les Lutz to "pull back the ropes" for us to enjoy a sneak preview of their newest “Garden of the Senses”. The waterfalls and boardwalk were beautiful. They are to be commended for continuing to create new exhibits while maintaining many original features for 50 years.
Cobb Astro Park/Barnstable High School is such a uniquely special place. Mike and Mary Gyra are great ambassadors. While we ran over our time at Cobb Astro Park, there was no way I was going to rush anyone.
A special thanks to Rick Haddad for all his help and for sharing his excellent photos of this tour (below links):
