Cape Cod… you are beautiful!

Being a West Coaster my whole life I have heard of Cape Cod and seen pictures or videos but I couldn’t understand how beautiful it was until I was actually there.

I enjoyed the clam chowder and a lobster taco. I didn’t get any pictures because I immediately dug in!  Not too hungry… sure…IMG_3792 IMG_3793 Lots of cool old buildings in Woods Hole. Also a free aquarium and other free/donation only scientifical places.IMG_3794 IMG_3795 For perspective, little Kate – big lighthouse.IMG_3796 IMG_3799 Future job: Lighthouse keeper. Whatta view!IMG_3800 IMG_3801 IMG_3802 At the Cape Cod Brew Fest Katie got an alcohol infused ice cream! She loved it.  This is the only photo I took at Beer Fest? Guess I was too busy toastin and enjoying fine brews!IMG_3805

Loved Cape Cod! I can not wait to go back and stay a little longer.

Way to Live

“Happy, Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running – that’s the way to live. All alone and free in the soft sands of the beach by the sigh of the sea out there.”

– Jack Kerouac The Dharma Bums

This little gem of a quote has a home on my desk.  It makes me happy. It makes me smile.  Can’t you just imagine that salty air filling your nostrils and whipping your hair around. Mmmm mmm I love it and I can almost close my eyes and picture myself standing on the shoreline with my toes wiggling in the sand…that’s my happy place (one of them anyway). I want to live a wild life, relatively.  Just free to explore, chart my own course and be out there, outside, experiencing nature and the beauty of the outdoors.
