Cape Cod

Cape Cod is my happy place.



It's the place that I go to in my mind when I don't think that I can last another day of England's grey and rainy winter, it's the place I go to when I want to escape, it's the place that I daydream about when I should be studying.




It had been five (long) years since I last made the journey across the Atlantic to Cape Cod and I am so relieved that it only seems to get better...the smell of the air, the outdoor showers and of course, the New England chowdah.



There are so many places that I love to go: Martha's Vineyard, Woods Hole, Provincetown but we spend most of our time in Falmouth. Main Street, Falmouth is cute - with cutesy shops and bars to go to. Betsy's Diner is an absolute MUST. I went to Betsy's for breakfast on my first day in America...the diner is American enough but I just so happened to be sitting next to a table of Air Force servicemen! 

One of my favourite things to do is walk down to the beach and sit, looking across the water to Martha's Vineyard...especially at night when you can see the lights from Oaks Bluff.


One morning I got up really early and went for a walk down to the beach and through the quiet streets, where everybody was just waking up. I find it very hard to find peace, but that truly was a peaceful moment for me, watching people walk their dogs along the shore, seeing the boats head out for a day of fishing. Moments like this make the Cape very special to me.




I love sitting on the porch. In the morning with a cup of tea or in the evening with family and friends. There is something so nice about being able to sit outside, enjoying the last of the day's heat... especially if the porch is cute and nautical like this.



I'm already planning my next trip. Hopefully I'll be seeing you in Summer 2018, darling Cape Cod.
