My dear wife Karen and I wondered how this state of COVID-19 Cautions would affect the places we’ve come to rely on for the two big Rs in our annual Cape Cop getaway.
We’d be happy if they were open and operating in a manner that made us feel safe.
The Beach Bar’s bar is closed, we were informed upon arrival, but the table seating is spread out and accepting masked customers. The wait will be about a half hour, we were told. Put us on the list.
It took more like 10. We were satisfied that we were far enough from any other customers, especially in the open oceanside air.
Our table was right on the rail. After receiving our menus from the fast and courteous server, we felt it was time to …
… take off the masks and let the glorious sun soak in.
Our first order was easy. We’d been waiting for these since June 2019.
Hello, Cape Cod Pina Coladas.
In every bar on the Cape, food must be ordered with alcoholic beverages.
Karen chose a chicken sandwich done up on focaccia bread.
I opted for vegetable egg rolls.
Karen took half her sandwich home.
I practically licked my plate. OK, I made sure I got every morsel in a socially proper and safe manner.
‘Heck of a lunch.
