I knew my attractions list on Inner Cape Cod was short when I set out for the Peters Pond RV Resort in Sandwich MA on Tuesday, June 12, 2012. I couldn’t have planned a short week any better. The laundry was demanding attention, and the truck needed an oil change. By the time the week drew near, I learned the weatherman was not going to be a tourist’s best friend either. Perfect!
