Marie's Trip to Cape Cod!


Good evening, everyone... and
Happy November!
Soon, we'll all be basking in the aroma
of bubbling autumn spices emanating from
our kitchens... it's Thanksgiving-time again!

I'll try to show you guys in my next post some
of my Halloween adventures (including a short
video of my outdoor decorations on Halloween 
night!) but tonight, I'd like to share with you more
of Marie's wonderful trip... this part, in Cape Cod!

Day Six
"Our time on Nantucket sadly came to an end (for this time), and we caught the morning ferry back to Hyannis. After arriving on the Cape, we took a cab to the airport and picked up our rental car. We then drove to Sandwich, to The 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center, inspired by I Heart New England! There we met my pen friend of 38 years (!) that I hadn’t seen for the last 16 years! She and her husband had driven all the way from Minnesota to spend three days with us on Cape Cod! What joy!
We had managed to get afternoon tickets to Eden Hand Arts and we just about got there in time to buy our Screwball bracelets and get them fitted. We haven’t taken them off yet!...


Back in Sandwich, we went on the Sandwich Boardwalk for a beautiful evening walk on the beach overlooking Cape Cod Bay."


 Day Seven
Beach in Chatham

"The next day we drove up to Provincetown on Route 6. We visited and climbed the stairs to the top of the Pilgrim Monument from where we had a beautiful view of the land.
We then drove to Chatham where we took a walk around town and to the beautiful beach and the Chatham Light."

Day Eight

"On our last day together with our friends, we went to Plimoth Plantation to find out more about the Pilgrims. It was really interesting, both the Wampanoag Homesite, and the 17th-Century English Village."

  1. So cool, Erin. I remember going to Plimoth Plantation and loving it. Especially remember the funeral procession of Annie Brewster---it was so real.

    Love your new header, by the way! Take care and thanks for sharing. Susan

  2. I love the Cape. We had a summer cottage for years on Bayview Beach in Dennis. Great memories.

  3. I grew up in Plymouth, Marie, so it was great to see your photo from the Plantation. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip!
