Cape Cod Vacation 2016, Another Update

I think it’s high time for me to share some more photos and memories of our vacation, don’t you? When last we met we were beaching, eating, and drinking. And well, frankly, not much has changed and I couldn’t be happier about that.

Here’s a play-by-play or our day-to-day activities.

  1. That fried dough picture?! That might require additional explanation at some point. Otherwise, my envy continues unabated. Enjoy!

  2. I’m not sure how you have room for lobster and steak after so many delicious appetizers! I’m not familiar with fried dough, but after I looked it up and realized that it’s called elephant ears in this area, I completely understand the appeal. Enjoy it all!

  3. All of this fun, food, and frolic has me turning totally green (as opposed to being beautifully tan). The bridal couple looked like movie stars–just sayin!

  4. My inlaws love to play Quiddler-such a fun game. I soo love that “arial” photo of your snacks. Looks like a lovely vacation.

  5. So much fun and good eats and fabulous weather! Looks like your vacation has been awesome Carole! Good luck to you and Dale on re-entry – lol.

  6. wow! what a wonderful time y’all had… thank you for sharing so many details about the food and drink, beach, sun and FUN so I could enjoy it all vicariously!
