We made a little getaway during the beginning of Feb break. It was cold, but when bundled up .. the beaches in East Chatham and Welfleet area is the best place to be in the middle of winter! And even though many of the seasonal restaurants were closed, P Town always has great art everywhere. We ate at our favorite place The Canteen again (open year round!), and as always – the crispy spicy Brussels sprouts did not disappoint. Even Louie loves Cape Cod now!

(thank you Auntie Betty for hosting!)

In an effort to relive my 10th birthday (yeah – denying my new age), my family and I went to Cape Cod for a weekend.  I have fond memories of eating lobster and riding go-karts in this neighborhood – and while much of the terrain has changed since I was younger, we did manage to find fun NEW things to do.  Like this amazing boardwalk beach in East Sandwich: not only was the stroll on the boardwalk over wetlands amazing, but the little inlet near the ocean proved to be a fun stomping ground for kids chasing feisty hermit crabs.

You’re never too old to find new traditions I guess:

There’s nothing like finding new beaches to explore while the summer is still soldiering on. While making our way to the tip of The Cape we explored Cahoon Hollow Beach – and its glorious sand dunes. We then made our way to Provincetown to explore the galleries and eat at the AMAZING Canteen Restaurant. I can’t stop craving their glazed brussels sprouts and fish tacos .. and of course I am always missing New England dishes like scallops, lobster, and stuffed quahogs like my dad use to make. We then finished the day off with a night swim in the pool back at Auntie Betty’s place. Perfect!

After spending some time in Maine we travelled back down to Martha’s Vineyard. The kids loved the ferry ride and seeing their cousins again (see our previous outing with them here). We often woke to wild turkeys walking in the backyard, and the kids learned a bit about fishing – a hobby and tradition that Papa is happy we are keeping alive!
