A different lobster roll

My dear wife Karen and I saved our visit to the Ocean House’s Beach Bar for the tail end of this year’s Cape Cod Getaway. The new rental left the popular outdoor pub/restaurant a short walk from our house. And that gave us days to long for our meals. So I ordered the king-sized hot…

Rubbing it in?

My dear wife Karen and I always stop at the restaurant/pub The Red Nun, nestled cozily on Main Street in the Village of Dennis Port. We visit in the afternoon so we can again chat with bartender Jack. This year he served us tap pints of Cape Cod Blonde Ale in glasses adorned with Boston…

This cake takes it

In our trip to regular supermarket Stars, which most reminds us of Syracuse area food marts, my dear wife Karen and I stumbled upon this holiday cake. No, it did not make it into our cart with the goods to make sure that not every meal had to be eaten out during this year’s Cape…

Throwing in for the Cleat & Anchor

One of the reasons we adored the location of the house we rented the previous handful of years was the ability to walk to several restaurants we grew fonder of as time went by. On we settled into our new rental 1.25 miles toward the beach and away from the village on night one of…

Dog, meet beach

Our first walk with cherished rescue mutt Ellie B was to the public beach, after dinner. We knew we did not want to take her way down yonder. She still enjoyed her moment in the golden hour. Next morning, the three of us rook the opposite turn to the private beach. We knew it was…

Walk, walk, beach

Our Cape Cod vacation location was a quarter-mile stride from not one, but two beach locations. If we took a left out of the driveway and went down the first available lane, we hit stairs that led to the big public beach. Lots of folks frolicked at the bottom of that climb. We enjoyed the…

This year’s Cape Cod adventure starts with a new place

When my dear wife Karen began researching this year’s Cape Cod adventure at the start of 2022, she discovered that the house we’d secured online for the past handful of vacations was no longer being offered. We figured that the kind owner finally decided to use all the warm weeks for herself. My dear wife…

Found: one more Cape Cod dad and dog photo

My dear wife Karen sent me a text and a photo. She’d found a great picture she’d taken of our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle and I when the three of us were walking the beach of Cape Cod a few weeks back. Yes, it is quite a beautiful moment.

Great to see you on the Cape, Ann

Sometimes great things are saved for last. Before we left for Cape Cod Getaway 2021, my blogging friend Ann Koplow and I emailed back and forth to find a common day for her to take the drive from her home near Boston to Dennis Port. Our last full day on the Cape it was. We…

Why we go back to this house

Thank you, pretty little Dennis Port cottage, for keeping us happy for our 10-day getaway to Cape Cod. The particular place has kept us safe and comfortable for three stays now. We’ll look it come 2022 and hope its owner is still renting, yes.
