Cape Cod Days

For days 38, 39, and 40 of summer, my girls and I visited my mom on Cape Cod. We were hoping the weather forecast would improve, but it remained overcast with occasional showers until the day we needed to come home. But we made our own fun.

We started on Sunday with a lunch that definitely doesn’t fit into my fitness plans, lol:

That’s a split dog with bacon and cheese from the The Dog House in Dennisport.

I spotted some beautiful lilies across the street while we ate our lunch.

Visits to the Christmas Tree Shops are always a part of our trips to the Cape. Sarah has a tradition of finding the silliest hats she can while we are there and trying them on.

Of course we never miss a visit to the candy store either!

The Yarmouth Sand Sculptures were back again this year, although they did not seem as expansive as I’ve seen in the past.

We found a unique window box at the Hot Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans, where we stopped for afternoon treats.

An afternoon walk along a small boardwalk at Grey’s Beach in Yarmouth turned up a personalized board that I had to take a photo of –

I hope Daphne does not take offense!

A little visitor stopped by at my mother’s house when we had returned from our day’s adventures.

In an attempt to enjoy a little warm, sunny beach time before we had to head home, we enjoyed a treat from Dunkin Donuts Tuesday morning.

I’m very appreciative of this time I got to spend with my family. Excellent treats, excellent times!


  1. One of life’s treasures – time with loved ones – gorgeous surroundings makes it even more precious.

  2. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, looks and sounds like it was still a wonderful trip. I love those hats Sarah is trying on. πŸ™‚

    • It was – we always find a way to make it work. No matter the season, Sarah always finds the hats.
