I’d love to share some vacation pics, if you’d like to see! My mom and I spent last week at the Cape for a little mother daughter vacay. We specifically went to Provincetown, which is waaayyy at the tip of Cape Cod. We visited many beaches when I was growing up but we frequented Provincetown the most, so I knew that was where we had to go for our beach getaway.
The best part about Cape Cod is that the entire seashore is considered a national park, so there are no big hotels, busy boardwalks, or houses. It’s just untouched sparkling beaches with big dunes that make you feel completely tucked away from the rest of the world.
We fell into a wonderful vacation schedule of leisurely breakfasts of hot coffee and poached eggs over buttery toast or steel cut oats with blueberries.
We’d head to the beach around 10 a.m. and pack a lunch of sliced canteloupe, salami and Manchego cheese sandwiches, and salt and vinegar chips (yum!).
We took naps, read, and took long walks on the beach where we spotted seals and whales offshore.
Most nights we’d pick up local seafood to make dinner and then crawl into bed around 10 pm… heaven.
But some nights we strolled around town and indulged in lobster rolls, fried clams, and of course ice cream. My favorite flavor was salted caramel chocolate pretzel. To die for.
One night we had dinner at The Red Inn. Doesn’t my mom look so glam in her sunnies??
We had rain one morning but it was kind of nice, as I needed a little break from the sun. We took a walk along the bay and came across this darling boat.
The trip was so relaxing and so what I needed. I’ll share a few more pics on Friday as well as a few aha moments I had during the trip… in the mean time I’ll be brainstorming ways to teleport myself back to the beach.
Did you go to the beach this summer? Are you itching to live by the ocean? I seriously think I need to make it happen!
