Cape Cod Chaos

Happy Hump Day everyone!!
I wanted to check in from the Cape and actually talk about the Cape! In case you missed it, I'm spending the week on Cape Cod with Dablet, Kyle, and my mom with a few days in Boston at the end to catch a Red Sox game and see just about as many friends as it's possible to fit in the time allowed!
Cape Cod is my childhood vacation spot and I am SO thrilled to be back! We've already knocked off the following items from the list:

  • Toes in the sand on the beach
  • Swim in Long Pond (where our rental is)
  • See a frog
  • See a seal (minus the Great White Shark)
  • Eat fresh lobster (pics below)
  • Try something new - raw oysters and oyster shooters (pics below)
  • Eat fresh fish - swordfish! Others to come
  • Eat at PJs (pics below) including clam strip roll, lobster roll, clam chowder, and coffee/black raspberry twist soft serve
  • Go to P-Town

Things left to do:

  • Go deep sea fishing (Tomorrow!!!)
  • Go antiquing/thrifting
  • Eat bluefish
  • Get Kyle to try an oyster
  • Play mini-golf
  • ...many more

We have a busy day today of antiquing! (this is probably the BIGGEST reason I'm glad we drove up here from NC....) I'll be sure to tweet my favorite finds even if I can't bring them home with me! Here are the pictures so far:
The perfect day at the pond! Dablet LOVED swimming in her tube and playing with the minnows!

The beach diva! 

Sometimes even mamas need a girl's night out! This one was full of new experiences including raw oysters and oyster shooters (raw oyster, vodka, horseradish tomato juice...stir and toss it back!) Plus I saw a seal on the beach...without the Great White!

Thanks for the shirt Grandy! We think she's a "keepah" too!

My Cape Cod food medley...
Broiled swordfish, oysters, and the way to take on a "Lobstah"! OK, I know that's not how you're supposed to do it, but it was a fun picture!

  1. Your pictures make me miss the Cape so much! When I was younger my family would rent a bunch of Cape Cod vacation rentals for a week and have a family reunion. Now that I'm older (and out of my parent's house) we no longer go to the Cape. It was a great tradition when I was younger. Once I get married and have kids of my own, maybe the tradition can start up again. Until then, I'll have to make a trip up by myself.

    On a side note, does anyone know how bad the Cape got hit by hurricane Sandy? I saw some video on the news last night and my heart sank. I hope the damage isn't as bad as what we got in Atlantic City.
