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.



This guy has been waiting all year for October.


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 enjoyed the sunset with this deliceous and creative way to present chocolate covered strawberries, courtesyof the Chatham Bars Inn.


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

    Gorgeous. The horseshoe crab photo is my favorite. I’ve been meaning to go to the Cape or Nantucket in the fall (such a different experience from the summer, right?).

    Happy anniversary!

  3. Holy horseshoe crabs! I didn’t know that they did that…craziness!

    Thanks for sharing:)
