The galley kitchen was a little snug, but it worked for our needs. Since Sweet P goes to bed around 7:00, we stayed in for dinner most nights. The Sailor really outdid himself in the kitchen and cooked nightly seafood smorgasbords that I am convinced was far better than any restaurant could offer.
We hit Mac's Fish Market and the Friendly Fisherman for clams, oysters, lob-stah and tuna (twice). (Mac's was definitely the better of the two places.) We also went to Mac's Shack , the "cloth napkin" place in Wellfleet, twice during the week. We tried several apps and entrees-- clam chowder, tuna poke, clams casino, clams vongole and the pan seared halibut with lobster mashed potatoes-- and everything far exceeded our expectations. Next time, I'm going for the lobster beignets! I doubt their online shopping and shipping option for those who live tragically far from the best oysterbeds and lobster traps would work well with beignets...
Thanks to the Sailor, we spent my birthday on Nantucket! It was a bit challenging logistically, but he made sure that we were all packed, ready-to-go and on the ferry in time to celebrate the day on the "Far Away Island".
And he kindly let me browse in the boutiques while he managed stroller duty and occupying the babe.
In true tourist fashion, I came home with a new t-shirt and hat...And I justified a frivolous expenditure at The Lovely because well, it was my birthday after all. Totally frivolous and wildly impractical because a 100% silk maxi dress just isn't a great choice for a number of reasons when you have an infant!
We also spent a day in Provincetown strolling the streets and driving along the National Seashore. The drive along the shore with its rolling dunes and beachgrass is some of the prettiest landscape I've seen on the East Coast.
Not so thrilled to be sitting in the sand!
She did love "swimming" in the ocean though!
My cover up is old Nanette Lepore. This pattern is no longer available, but check out other designs here. It's rayon and stays cool even on the hottest of days, plus it has huge pockets for stowing a phone, sunscreen and all the other junk moms carry!
What's in store for your summer vacation?
