Awesome Weekend, Part 2

As promised, this is the Cape Cod edition of my Awesome Weekend.  After our delicious luncheon  and an afternoon chatting with our BFF Renae, my girls, my sister, my mother and I made the trip to Mom’s place on Cape Cod.  We arrived late evening Saturday, so my photos that I have to share with you are from Sunday which turned out to be a sunny but windy day.  The seagulls were drifting…
Bass River

… and the windsurfers were surfing!


As I said, it was a sunny day, but it wasn’t that warm!  Check out my “crew” at the beach at Bass River:

After our windy beach visit, the sun was still lovely and warm, so I requested a little walk around Mom’s neighborhood to see what might be in bloom on the Cape.  I found some pretty sights.  These were growing in the backyard, and I found out over at Barbara’s blog that they are called chionodoxa.


Daffodils are in bloom just about every where you look down at the Cape (still not in my front yard though, hmmpph!)


These grew in a large carpet at the front of someone’s property.  We wondered if it could be heather.  Any ideas?

A sweet little pair of ducks was swimming in a little swampy pond in the neighborhood and I couldn’t  help taking some snaps of the cuties in the late afternoon sun:

Our weekend, in addition to the beach visit and sight-seeing, of course included shopping and good eats, with a very healthy dose of laughter.  Pretty awesome weekend, wouldn’t you say?


  1. Yes, that is heather. I’d know it anywhere. 😉

  3. Sounds and looks like a great weekend! Sorry about your daffodils, mine are in full bloom. I wonder why yours are being so lazy?

    • My daffodils are always lazy – with the exception of last year when virtually everything was early, my daffodils never bloom until the end of April. They are planted on the north side of my house, a few feet from the foundation, so they don’t get a ton of sunshine.

  4. Yes, that does sound like an awesome week-end! I could use one of those myself right about now.
    I like those little white & blue flowers, and you got some great light in the second duck photo.

  8. Glad you had a great weekend… You certainly can’t beat a break to recharge the batteries eh (although after mine I feel exhausted.. lol).. You sure did bag a great selection of shots though… 🙂

    • Thank you! A trip away is good for the soul I believe, and probably less exhausting now that my girls are older and don’t require constant care and amusement.

  9. A weekend on Cape Cod is always fantastic no matter the weather! I’m filled with longing… Beautiful pictures, Karen… The chionodoxa look so different way up close like that! Thanks for a new perspective!
