~*Cape Cod*~

Today we spent in South Yarmouth at Cape Cod. It is a very quiet time of year here. Many of the shops are shut down for the season and the beaches are very quiet. Just a few folks out taking a stroll.

It was an overcast and cool day but it felt so good to be outside just walking.

We did walk along a fishing dock where we saw a couple of men fishing and of course a few birds looking for some supper. It was a very quiet day visiting a few antique shops. We saw lots of neat things but didn't find any treasures to bring home.

We went to a local restaurant that served seafood and had to try these onion rings. There was way too much for the both of us but they sure were good.

Tomorrow we head for Boston for a few days to see some history and then on Saturday we head for home. I'm just about ready for the quiet farmhouse I call home!

Happy Trails....Ginger

oh my goodness those onion rings are humongus lol. The pictures of the water clearly look like summer is over. But they are gorgeous and so peaceful. Will keep you in my prayers for a safe trip home....

Ginger....thanks so much for taking us along on your trip!! You are going to all my old stomping grounds!! I grew up in Concord, Mass...summers at Cape Cod and Ogunquit, Maine! The beaches are off season, but the beauty of the trees makes up for it and the food is always great!! Looks like you are having a wonderful time and probably getting lots of great ideas for more folk art!!

Stop at the cemetary in the city of Boston where Paul Revere is buried, if you can find it, look for a headstone with the name of "Mary Goose" dated sometime in the 1600's.
Have a great time!

My folks lived on Cape Cod for years. The crowds in the summer and during the Holidays make up for the quiet you got to experience. Enjoy Boston!!

What gorgeous photos! I've never been to Vermont, but went to Martha's Vineyard 17 years ago on our honeymoon. It's always fun to discover other crafters along the trip.
