A Day at the Beach

My favorite Patti Page song keeps running through my mind. (Be sure to check out her biography page then click the DEMO button at the bottom. You'll be glad you did.)

So lets take a trip to Old Cape Cod.

Now that we have the mood music, we'll need a map.

We've got to cross the Cape Cod Canal at either the Sagamore Bridge or ...

Where will we stay?

Mmmm... Very nice, but not in my budget. Perhaps here?

Maybe if we skipped some meals we could afford it. Naw, I want Lobster!

I'll take it! It's still on the beach after all.
Now, let's have some fun!

Some window shopping...

See the sights...

So many lighthouses, I love it!

Time to head to the beach. Here's what I'm wearing.

Perfect for strolling the water's edge in search of seashells.
I'm starving, let's eat!

More shopping,

this time to buy souveniers.

I need postcards to send home and I just had to buy this hanky.
(Wish I had this one)

Did you enjoy your trip to Cape Cod?

We live only a 2-3 hours drive from this enchanting place. I've spent vacations on Cape Cod a couple of times in my life and it's lovely. Unfortunately, so many people love it that the in-season traffic is unbearable. That, combined with my hubby's total lack of enthusiasm for spending time at the beach means I haven't been here in years.  Perhaps a day trip could be pleaded for sometime soon.

This has got to be one of the most fun posts ever! I love the use of postcards to tell a story. I have never been to Cape Cod...we tend to stay west of the Rockies...but I feel like I just spent the day! =D

Holy Smokes! What fun post cards! Why haven't I ever been to your blog before!? I'm the new funny faced follower... and I got laid off so if you want some one to follow you on a road trip to Cape Cod, I'll bring the Patty Page music!

Now that was the greatest post! I loved it. How fun, I sure enjoyed this virtual stroll through time and Cape Cod. I never have been there, but feel like I want to go now. I hope you get to go soon.

I sure wish I lived closer and I would definitely hit the beach with you. I ain't afraid of no traffic! LOL!!!

Loved your post card story.

Linda, you came to visit me on exactly the perfect day! I can't tell you enough how enamored I am of Cape Cod! And Patti Page!!! Oh my gosh my mother played her music endlessly when I was a very young child. I'm so happy to find you again. I won't lose you this time! E
