It also means other things to me..

Long stretches of beach, morning walks, hanging out with the fam., board games, shooting stars, coffee and scones, Lobster and fish, biking the bike trail.

Where do you go to Chill in the Summer?

We are here for a few more days before heading back to CT and then our journey west, to the mountains and mushrooms!

  10. Beautiful photos Dawn! Chatham is one of my favorite spots on the Cape. We sat in the parking lot across the street from the lighthouse during an intense nor'easter. It got to the point that I thought the car was going to take off in the high winds. It's was awesome!

    Sharon and I were married not far from there in South Yarmouth. Ceremony was held on the beach under a large gazebo.

    Have a great time!

  13. I love those hydrangeas, Dawn. And I really love those hollyhocks. I grew a few of them when I lived in Albuquerque (in the late '90s). Unfortunately, I don't have either of them here in California. sigh.
