Nearly going home

Aren’t holidays brilliant? I love them and this has been one of the best ever, two weeks in Cape Cod. We have have had all the weather available except snow and loved it!
What else is brilliant about holidays? Going home! I love the going home part. I don’t love the trip to the airport and the waiting and waiting and taking your shoes off and holding up your jeans while they check your belt for any deadly metal. Mine has no deadly metal, it is a very kind belt, but it is needed in the ‘holding up my jeans and not flashing anyone while I take off my potentially killer shoes’ department.

The boys went fishing and caught weed and something so huge it chewed off the fishy lure thing on the end of the line.

We spotted lots of wildlife, including horseshoe crabs, gray seals, a coyote which was very cool and just behind our cottage (eek), birds birds and more birds, fiddler crabs (whoever invented those things was clearly drunk) and chipmunks by the scurrying load.

I found some fabulous loot at a flea market (check my wooden soldier in the first photo). There was a whole box of vintage toys I nearly got the lot, but I managed to restrain myself.

The beach combing is a treasure fest and I managed to find lots of shells with natural holes (thanks to the drilling moon snails) and lots of tiny pebbles I am sure I can make something with.

There are some great eating places here too, our favorites were Hanger B at the Chatham airport and The Corner Store where they make the most amazing burritos and equally amazing whoopie pies.

We have seen the smallest library I have ever come across.

And a rather large wood pile on the dunes at Chatham Beach.

All in all, I am happy to be getting ready to go home with all of my treasures, but I will miss the lovely Cape Cod.
Where are you vacationing? Have a fab time wherever you go.
