Hey there! As I hinted, I decided to blog a bit during vacation. The reason? WiFi at our rental house for the first time ever! Woot! So, here are a lot of photos and a few words about the way we’ve been spending our time.
A solo martini and snack plate for me since Dale had to go work with the band. I managed just fine, though. I had a Louise Penny book to read and a beautiful setting. I also had the cat and the Olympics.
Sausage and eggs for breakfast. Yes, on paper plates because no dishwasher.
A beautiful afternoon at the beach.
Snacks on the deck, this time with Dale. It’s much nicer with my true companion there.
A ride to the resident’s beach to watch the sunset.
It was cloudy but stunning nevertheless.
Moon rise behind our bikes.
A drive to Wood’s Hole for lunch at The Landfall.
The view is spectacular and the beer is cold and delicious.
It’s a classic Cape Cod restaurant and I’m glad we finally went.
Not pictured on this day: an afternoon nap, drinks and snacks on the deck with Kim and her family.
Lunch at Anejo, the closest we get to feeling like we’re in Mexico.
Dale had tacos. Yummmm.
And I had a gigantic chimichanga. So good and the leftovers came home with me.
Not pictured that day: drinks, snacks and games at Kim’s house. Lots and lots of laughing.
Art journaling and coffee on the deck.
A bike ride around our neighborhood with this colorful dude.
Finding a Little Library and borrowing a mystery set on Martha’s Vineyard.
Knitting. Yes, my friends, I actually knitted!
Dinner at The Raw Bar for the best lobster roll in the world. And Cape Cod Beer, too.
Listening to a musician sing lots and lots of Jimmy Buffett. He was really very good and it soothed our pain on missing Buffett this year.
And Kim in her new hat.
So, as you can see, it’s been a fantastic vacation so far. The weather has been hot, humid and sunny. The company has been excellent. And the food and drink – well – you know me, it’s a big part of our plans every day!
The kids arrive tomorrow for a week and that will change some of our plans but not by much. And, as Dale said yesterday, it’s still about joy, just a different kind of joy.
