Knitting was the only thing I did on vacation that even remotely resembled work. And we all know that knitting is not work so I think you can safely surmise that I relaxed a lot while at the Cape. Here are some photos of the things we all did to relax.
Ahhh. The beach again. You’re probably sick of beach photos by now but I can’t help myself. The beach that was closest to the house we stayed at was private and relatively deserted most days. I love a beach without people and so does Dale so this was the beach we chose most days.
We walked around our neighborhood a few times with the dog. We let her swim once or twice and one night witnessed a really pretty sunset.
We collected shells to bring home to remind us of our week at the beach. This was my idea and, while Dale and Hannah resisted at first, they finally got on board and started picking up shells with me.
We relaxed on the deck with martinis. It’s pretty rare for Dale to drink a martini so I had to take this photo. I, on the other hand, had a martini every day. Ahem.
Of course we went out to eat. This lobster roll is absolutely HUGE and it’s from a legendary place called The Raw Bar. This restaurant was 10 minutes from the house. TEN minutes. It’s a true testimony to my incredible will power (and frugality) that we only went there twice and not every day.
So, for those of you concerned that I relaxed enough on my vacation, I hope your fears at put to rest now. My family and I relaxed very very well.
