Cape out

June 15, 2012

Our amazing friends called us late last night to offer their beautiful home on Cape Cod for the weekend.  It is in the darling town of North Falmouth and walking distance to the beach…an offer too good to pass up.  So I am running around like a manic this morning trying to make it all work, amid nap schedules and tying up projects.  I mean, we don’t even have a travel crib for the little munchkin.  Here are some of my favorite photographs from our previous Cape getways.

Happy Summer!

Cape – out

Cape Cod in the Fall

October 3, 2011

To celebrate our wedding anniversary we popped down to the town of Chatham on Cape Cod.  The weather was still beautiful but the summer crowds had departed and the sun hung lower in the sky indicating the changing of the seasons.  I love the beach and the ocean any time of year, but particularly now in the quite fall.  Chatham is an old fishing community on Cape Cod, that now also boasts some of the most beautiful homes on the Cape.  It has all the charm of an old New England town that just exudes pumpkins, leaves, and sweaters all with the smell of the ocean wafting in the breeze.

We stayed at the ridiculously awesome Chatham Bars Inn with our room over looking the ocean.  I could have sat there all day watching the fishing boats come and go, listening to the fog horns in the early morning.

I just love the old wicker beach cabanas.  They just scream Jackie Kennedy on the Cape.

We found this on the beach.  Local art of mass exodus of horseshoe crabs in size order.  I love it.

We savored every moment, bite, sunset, and ocean view.  It was a wonderful getaway.

“Come on Irene”

August 29, 2011

Okay, so I know the song is actually Eileen, but I had it in my head all weekend.  We decided to head to the Cape to stay with some friends (in a very secure off the water home) to visit and watch the pending hurricane.  Thankfully all went well and Irene was fairly kind to the Boston and Cape Cod area.  I did have to pop down to the ocean a few times to see nature in action.  It was quite impressive.

I hope everyone else on the east coast weathered it safely.

Summer Vacation

July 22, 2011

With the temperatures slated to creep into the triple digits today I am longing once again for the beach and ocean breeze.  Although I can’t complain much.  Last week the hubs and I took the whole week off and rented a house on Cape Cod.  It felt so gown-up to rent our own home and get away for an entire week!  The weather could not have been better as we spent our days on the beach adn exploring every inch of the Cape from the trip of the arm in Provincetown to Buzzards Bay and Woodshole.  I just love summer.

The week flew by as all great vacations seem to do.  I hope everyone has a great weekend and stays cool.

blog excuse…

July 13, 2011

We are renting a house on Cape Cod this whole week, and the fact that there is no wireless internet (how spoiled we all become…eathernet plug in…what is that?) and the ocean is right our my front door, is making it very difficult for me to blog.  I have some great additional photos of the Matchbook Magazine photo shoot I am dying to share with you all, and promise to do so soon.  But for now the ocean, my bikini and sunscreen are calling.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

Summer Dreaming

February 28, 2011

In the time honored New England tradition, I am already dreaming and planning for summer.  This Saturday we popped down to the Cape to take a look at a few houses to rent this summer.  Even with snow on the dunes, I could feel the heat and smell the summer ocean.  I can’t wait.

Escape to the Cape

August 15, 2010

From the looks of some previous blog posts it may seem as if I spend half my time at some sort of beach.  I am quite a water baby so I usually jump at any chance to visit the ocean,  Despite their frequency over the past six months my trips to Sea Island, Maine and Cape Cod have been little more than day or weekend trips, so I was quite excited for my husband and I to take off a few days from work and get in some real relaxing beach time.

Sun, sand, and outdoor showers after a day at the beach.  Can it get better than that?

Quintessential Cape

Some friends of ours lent us their ridiculously adorable quintessential cape house, practically on the beach.  It was heaven.

Tiny backyard cabin/shed/playhouse

This little backyard shed felt right out of a magazine spread.  Can you imagine this as a playhouse or little office?

Veggie Tales

They even have a vegetable garden!

All this space, greenery, fresh air and gardening makes me want to pack it all up and indulge in gorgeous country living…and sunsets like this have me plotting a way for another day or weekend visit soon.

I am sure in a few weeks I will be loving the smell and excitement of Autumn in the city, but for now I am holding on to summer for as long as I can.
