Cape Cod 2007

I must forewarn you that this will be another photo rich posting! We had a fabulous time in Cape Cod. I absolutely love the Cape and someday in the very far off future, plan to retire there. It is so peaceful and beautiful and friendly. The Cape also has some of the best and freshest seafood! Oysters on the half shell are one of my very favorites. Loved them since I was a kid. These may not be Connecticut photos but Cape Cod is part of New England and only a three hour drive from my home so I'm going to consider these part of my photos of my home!
This is a dock side view in West Dennis. This scene was along the streets I walked each morning.
Margot is quite the beach bum! She loves the sand but isn't too sure about the ocean.

A lovely sailboat.

This is a lovely home that was for sale. Hmm, maybe I can convince Jeff to buy it for me!

This is one of the cottage's near the one we stayed at. Many people name their cottages. This one was called 'Tis Ours. Some others we saw included Summerwind, Dad's Dream, Piece of Heaven, Simple Pleasures, Our Home by the Sea, and Ospreyland.

This is my favorite photo! It is a little shed that we happened upon while driving. How beautiful is this (minus that pesky electrical box)? I am going to frame this one.

Chatham Lighthouse

View from the Chatham Lighthouse.

More views from the lighthouse. For lack of a better term, there are these pay for a view binoculars at the lighthouse. When I was a kid, instead of zooming in on the view - I zoomed in on the couple making out on the beach! My mother was hysterical. I guess I loved romance from then on!

This lovely home was under construction last year, came out pretty snazzy don't ya think?

Beautiful Victorian home. There is a lovely vintage china shop attached.

Gosh, why can't I be rich? LOL.

Some traditional Cape Cod architecture.

And the crowning glory - me and Louise! I hope Louise is one of the first (the other being Jennifer) of many blogging friends I get to meet! What are some of your favorite hometown/vacation photos?

Look at the blue sky, cotton candy clouds and that Blue blue water!!!!!!
I have serious envy right about now!

And oh man, if you can't convince Jeff to buy it for you, convince him to buy it for me! ha!

The little shed is to die for. I would live in it, happily ever after. If Jeff won't buy me the house, that is. lol

I may never get to visit the north east, so how lucky am I that you visited *for me* and then shared all your lovely pics!!!

I think my favorite home is the victorian, and then also the capecod that you liked. Both were so dreamy.

I am glad you had a nice visit with your friend Louise, and thank you for visiting my blog and complimenting my twinkies.

The little shed, how absolutely to die for is that? What a great memory of your trip that will make when it is framed.

Everything is so gorgeous there. I wonder if we could ALL move there? Wouldn't that be fun! So great that you and Louise met, that's the best part!
