Daniel and I have been racking up the mileage on our car lately. Thank goodness for Daniel's company car!!!!! A friend of mine got married in Cape Cod on August 28th. We have both never been up in that area, so once we got the save the date, we put it on our calendar right away. Originally, we wanted to go somewhere special for our 1st Anniversary, however; because of the house we bought...no vacation was in sight. We decided to make our wedding trip a vacation and stay a few extra days to celebrate our anniversary....although a little late. We are so glad we did this! It was such an enjoyable, relaxing and fun vacation. We stayed in Chatham, Cape Cod. Chatham is such a quaint, cute little town full of charm. The weather was perfect...in the low 80's and a nice breeze from the ocean. Cape Cod was really what Daniel and I had both imagined. We had a few of the area's famous lobster rolls, clam chowder, fresh and boy do I mean fresh fish...and various other delicious foods.
Since we had our car with us, we went for a couple day trips. One day we went to Providence Town, or otherwise known as "P-Town." This is a very artsy, again picture-perfect, quaint town. It is very similar to Key West...if ya get what I mean. It's the Key West of the north. Very awesome though and we had a great time. We both had the bug the whole time to buy a piece of original artwork...however, everything was WAY above our budget. Oh well, next time!
Another day, we took a boat over from Hyannis to Nantucket. Another wonderful day we had! We rented bikes and peddled all over the island. We biked all over the town...went to the ocean...had an amazing lunch by the water and then biked to a brewery/winery. It was a full day and we were tired on the boat ride back to Cape Cod. So worth it though. We hoped to see some whales while on the boat, but no such luck. If we had one more day we would have gone on a whale watching trip, but time did not allow.
If you've never been in this neck of the woods, I highly recommend it. It's very family friendly, peaceful and an overall fabulous low-key vacation spot. We had a great time celebrating our 1 year anniversary! :) Cheers to year 2!
