Cape Cod – the mainland

I have a secret. I hate editing photos in Photoshop. I can’t help it. It’s just soooooo tedious, and to be honest, I’m not as good at it as I’d like to be, which is frustrating. That dirty secret is why I haven’t told you anything about our trip to Cape Cod (now a distant memory), except this bit about S.’s camp. I think I’ve gotten my act together now, though, and will now regale you with stories (mostly pictoral in nature) of our travels.

(via Everything Cape Cod)

First, here’s a map. I find these helpful when in unfamiliar territory. Maybe you do too. We stayed a few days on the mainland in Brewster before heading to Martha’s Vineyard.

I was surprised at just how cute everything was—the cedar shingle siding on every house, lush wildflower landscaping, and old timey general stores.

The Woodshed is a bar we never made to for the “exotic cocktails” that it promised, but isn’t it darling?

We ate at the Box Lunch three times and it never disappointed. The Lobster My Way sandwich (shown below) kept me from deviating from my “lobster at every meal” policy.

We took at short tour of Hyannis, where I photographed the library, because even it was cute.

This is the port in Hyannis, where S. and I ate our Box Lunch sandwiches. It may or may not be the famed Hyannis Port. We’re not sure. Common sense would say yes, but you never know.

And, finally, who can’t appreciate an establishment that wants to advertise both fried seafood and ice cream on its sign? There’s a million places like this in Cape Cod. People just pull up, get their lobster dinner, and eat it on a picnic table. When they’re finished they go back and order an ice cream cone.  I love that! No fuss. Just delicious.

We’ll do Martha’s Vineyard tomorrow. I’m just squeezing this post in on time. There’s nothing like waiting ’til the last minute. Good night!
