It seems like two months is about the limit for staying in one place any more.
Today we are eastbound on the NY thruway and the Mass Pike, bound for Colm and Judy's house on Cape Cod.
Since arriving home from Florida we have launched ourselves into getting the garden spruced up. We also installed the three part carloads of Florida acquisitions, Lamps, carpets tables etc. Thanks to our Florida guests for car space and haulage. In her idle moments, ...
... the distance to Cape Cod to be too great for a single drive, and keen to visit both Newport and Boston, we broke the journey with a three day stop in rural Massachusetts, which allowed us to get to the two cities. We enjoyed both, and they provide a significant contrast. The Cliff Walk in Newport is an enjoyable few miles' ramble along the shore, with views of many of the famous Newport mansions.
... similar to Waiheke Island in many respects, aside from its lack of wineries. The Cape is populated only by a relative few hardcore locals in the off season, with most establishments either closed or operating reduced hours. In addition, it has a lot of unique houses (largely appearing to be second homes to rich Bostonians), from beachfront and clifftop mansions with expansive views all the way through to ramshackle cabins in the woods.
Tons of FUN with Abby on my visit back to the Cod!
We also took advantage of some outdoor concerts which were nice - one I can only describe as "Quirky"...and I am being kind. You will see the pictures and make your own judgement.
Other than Nauset Beach, we also went to Nauset Light and Marconi Beach. Marconi is the gentleman who sent the first transatlantic message back in the early 1900's from the dunes of the beach named for him.
Enjoy this first installment of Cape Cod.
