Adding to our good time in Cape Cod

When the four of us were perusing the good in a store in Chatham during our Cape Cod Getaway 2021, my eyes struck a truly fantastic item hanging in their buy-something-for-your-wall section. I stared and pictured it making the trip from Massachusetts to Central New York. I must have been in that one spot a…

New discoveries around Chatham

The four adventurers drove along the shore roads of Chatham and pulled up between the lighthouse and a cool-looking beach. First walk for Elisabeth, George Three, my dear wife Karen and I was the alluring beach, big shark warning be damned. The sand felt good on our feet. The wind felt good in our hair.…

The seals of Chatham finally came out to say hello

We told the kids that it would be fun to sea the seals of Chatham, but we’d have to get there early enough for the feeding off the fish pier. We made our schedule, witnessing the early fog. Alas, we forgot that the fishermen would take Memorial Day off. That meant there was not an…

We walk our coveted Chatham strip

The Town of Dennis Public Library filled its square with a more contemporary feel. Karen told me I’d fit in at both. Tomorrow: Wrapping…

One last look at Cape Cod, because I can

That’s what these ruminating recaps are built to encompass. And so I give you one…

The Chatham shoppers’ T-shirt reveal

The Life Is Good store in Chatham has made my dear wife Karen and I’s Traditions List on this annual pre-tourist-boom June week in Cape Cod. And we love to buy each other one T-shirt, of course. We choose our own. Look hard through the racks. Fancy what we love in life. I went with…

The street of Chatham

My dear wife Karen and I have been to Cape Cod in the Happy Cottage four years in a row now. Long enough to know what we must do to make the near-summer vacation complete. Drive that 15 or so miles down the road to visit Chatham makes the list. This year, though, we crossed…
