From China Maine, it is about 4.5 hours to Chatham on the Cape. And we usually do the drive straight, with only quick stops to pick up breakfast donuts and a quick bio break.

As we pass each landmark on the way, there is growing excitement. Will we get snarled in Boston traffic? We've always been lucky, but I always time it well with respect to typical rush hours - but especially when the "big dig" was occurring, you never knew what too expect! There is always a shout of excitement when we spot the first Cape Cod highway sign, usually as we leave Boston heading towards route 3. Then as we approach the bridge, counting down the mile markers.. will we hit bridge traffic or will the Cape Cod traffic gods be smiling upon us? Again I am very careful on the timing, so it is rare when we hit traffic. Finally as we go over the bridge, crossing the Cape Cod canal and entering the Cape there is a scream of "Hello cape cod" from all in the van.

Perhaps my daughter wasn't having as much on the ride as I thought!
