Last week my family escaped to Cape Cod! It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth, and there’s so many fun things to do. We trekked from one end of the Cape to the other and a little bit beyond up to Plymouth. Michael spends time down there every year for work but we tend to head north on vacation so it was new to the kids and I hadn’t been in a long time. We saw gardens… some really amazing gardens! This is a bed at the Heritage Museums and Gardens. I didn’t know that this 100 acres of surprises existed until a few weeks ago. I’m hoping to do a post or two about this wonderful place!
We loved the beaches…lots of wild and beautiful beaches!
We encountered some very large insects…
And lived in a very untypical dwelling for seven nights.
There were gardens in unexpected places…
and unexpected seal sightings in harbors.
We saw pristine views of Cape Cod Bay at Plimoth Plantation.
And I learned all about the gardens that the pilgrims grew!
I’m planning to write a lot more about our great day there later this week.
We visited a Cape Cod windmill…
It’s the best coffee in the world!
We swam (actually the kids swam), ate lots of cupcakes and had ice cream for dinner one night.
It was a trip of beautiful views, new experiences, family time and some great garden visits! Truly an escape like no other.
This week we’re back in Salem preparing for the start of school next week and harvesting things in the garden.
What are you up to? Are your kids back to school? How’s your garden growing?? questions, questions..
Enjoy everything (and answer one of my questions in the comments)!
