Cape Cod Log

Annual trip to Cape Cod was fun and eventful...will post pictures later. The weather was perfect and I already miss it...

Sunday: Met with our friends Mark and Marcy and their children, had Chinese (Moo Shoo Pork will not be forgotten, although Moo Goo Gai Pan will be).

Monday: Beach time...and WONDERFUL lobster/clam fritters at Nauset Beach...then, onto Eastham! Time in Salt Pond looking for critters...mostly hermit crabs this time. Dirt slugs very interesting. And of course, Eastham Lobster Pool, one of our favorite places to be. Husband and I had steak and 1/2 lobster. Mudslide for Mom, Coke for Dad, Cranberry juice for Michael!

Tuesday: PERSEY's (Husband LOVES you) with Mark & Marcy and kids...and then onto Pirates Cove and some Putt Putt time with the boys...ARRGH!

Wednesday: Time in the Pool! (both indoor and outdoor); Michael really went all out with his snorkel! Then Indian food for Margo's Birthday and a LATE night at the Wellfleet Drive-In.

Thursday: Ferry to Martha's Vineyard..beautiful day, and wonderful time.

Friday: Laid back time...and the Edward Gorey House (really cool!) More pool time for the Michael...

Saturday: Last day blues start setting in...saying good-bye to Grandpa and Margo; then off to Gourmet Brunch and a wonderful omelet and hot chocolate with whip topping in the glass with chocolate syrup (you pour the hot chocolate in yourself). Then one last time to a beach (remember that cash for the fee!). One last time in the outdoor pool...Michael staying in to the point of shivers... McNeery's Fish Place...wonderful fried fish (and mosquites in the night air).

Sunday: Free Breakfast at Egg & I, then off we go...home again! Whew!

Great time; wonderful company; memories for all.
