Ah, summer in Cape Cod! We meet again =) A much-anticipated vacation, especially for Dad, has finally arrived! On Sunday evening, we arrived to a spectacular sunset. After tossing our stuff into our cozy rented cottage, we headed out to a nearby pier to see the ocean…
Also we’ve seen a bunch of amazing sand creations around town! Below is a tribute to the Olympics in London and a pretty impressive whale :)
A most obvious chunk of our time has consisted of lounging in the soft sands of a beach in Dennis. I’m not a huge water person in general, but who can resist a beautifully sunny day with warm low tides?! A cooler weighted with drinks, turkey sandwiches, grapes, Goldfish, etc. ; an umbrella perfect for reading in the shade; and a good book have made the last two days pretty enviable.
Mini golf is always a hugely entertaining part of our getaways! Pirate’s Cove is an excellent course that we’re always extremely competitive for.
There’s always some learning experience when we’re away and this year’s first one has been about chocolate milk syrup. After pouring out in a lumpy consistency, the syrup refused to blend and dissolve into the milk. What looks like a blurry Oreo shake is actually supposed to be smooth chocolate-y dairy drink. = Fail to the Stop&Shop brand of Hershey’s.
We’ve been livin’ the ultimate summer vacation life out here the last few days. Beaching, grilling, playing mini-golf, watching a Cape Cod Baseball game, and devouring ice cream– nothing better =) Friday will come much too soon… Happy 4th, everybody!
