Leaving Cape Cod

All the good things come to an end. So was our stay on Cape Cod. I don’t know exactly what makes me feel differently when I’m visiting Cape Cod. I love vacations (who doesn’t!), but I typically want to avoid going to the same places over and over again. However, not when it comes to Cape Cod.

There is a genuine tranquility in that Cape Cod lifestyle. Little shops which are made out of the old houses. Little bakeries, which make cookies to die for. Little motels and inns, none of them more then two stories high. Lighthouses and water towers being the tallest structures around. The low tide on the beach, which allows you to walk and walk for hours. The beach which is never crowded. The waves in the sand which water leaves behind when it descends. The abundant flowers and greens of all kind. The special smell which is constantly in the air. There is something magical in the Cape Cod air, which lures you back…

We are back home now, so here are a few (okay, a lot) of the pictures I want to share with you. There will be more posts coming – we visited local Cape Cod winery, called Truro Vineyards, so I will talk about this experience, but for now, I just want to leave you with these little impressions of Cape Cod. Enjoy and cheers!

    Gorgeous photos! And I’m looking at them right after unpacking my suitcase, so I was already in a vacation state of mind. These made me want to go back. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      Thank you, I’m glad you like it! They were serving all the beverages in the jars in that restaurant – only mine was also properly chilled before they brought out the beer.

      ahh, thank you! To me, the lobster roll was perfect. Some of my dining companions said that it was kind of on a dry side, but it was definitely perfect for me.

        Don’t like a lobster roll that’s too wet, it looked perfect to me!

    All very nice photos, Anatoli, but I’ll second Suzanne: that lobster roll definitely made me hungry! It looks delicious!!! 🙂
    Glad you had a wonderful vacation.
    Take care

    Beautiful pics. My folks have a place in Chatham that I always find so relaxing to visit. I agree with you, Cape Cod is a great place just to ‘be.’

      Thanks, Linda! I don’t know where is the magic of Cape Cod is coming from, but there is something there, which is special…
