We didn’t have a lot of time; just over 30 hours. But it was valuable, and relaxing, and we crammed so many great moments into that short amount of time. Bike rides, and quiet meals, combined with a stunning sunset, finished with fireworks over the water. Leisurely breakfasts, and book reading, and whale watching on the open seas. Just us two. Cape Cod. There is the place that I feel the least encumbered. There is the place where Paul is in his element, where our separate memories have molded into our own family’s personal haven. There is where we want to be. And will be. Soon.
Can you tell what this is a picture of? -
These last two photos are some of my favorites from our trip. Both taken by Paul:
“The sea-shore is a sort of neutral ground,
a most advantageous point from which to contemplate this world.
It is even a trivial place. The waves forever rolling to the land
are too far-travelled and untamable to be familiar.”
-From ‘Cape Cod’ by Henry David Thoreau, 1865
