Our favorite restaurant comes through again

Over a handful of trips, we’ve discovered a healthy like for The Oyster Company. In fact, the plates of delicious seafood served up in Dennis Port are a highlight of Cape Cod week for my dear wife Karen and I every time. Hover over a gallery photo for a description. Click on an image for…

We can’t just eat at all the same places

The little restaurant at a crucial Cape Cod corner always caught our eye. My dear wife Karen decided that this would be the year we’d finally stop in to try the food at The Wee Packet. Breakfast was the meal of choice. Irish music played non-stop. Before choosing my meal, I discovered we were in…

Surely, the shop owners have set up racks of Rocky Mountain-loving wear daring you to plunk down your 20 bucks and call it your own. What tourist town doesn’t? Truth be known, on the grand scale of Where I’ve Been, this destination for…
