Weekend at the Cape...
We decided last minute to take a weekend away at the cape. Going there as a kid from Connecticut, it would take us 3-4 hours, now we live only 30 mins from the bridge. I can only hope one day we will be able to have a second home there. As peaceful as it is beautiful it's close.
This past weekend we went to Barnstable and Brewster. It is more of the peaceful side as I would like to call it. We were able to spend some time at the beach and do some local shopping.
Our first night we walked over to a local restaurant, where we had some great seafood on the pier.
After dinner we drove a bit down 6A and came across the Brewster Scoop! Great place for an ice cream, the line was out the door and the flavors were to die for. If you ever check it out try the purple cow, with blackrasberry ice cream with chocolate chunks, YUMMY!!
One of my favorite places to walk around was Mashpee Commons, which has everything from locally owned gift shops, for pups to household items and even The Gap!!
On the way home we stopped at this little gift shop on Rte6a Painted Daisies, located in East Sandwich. I knew it would be a great place to stop just by the amount of cars in the parking lot.We picked up a sweet cape cod candle for our dog sitter, a starfish charm for my pandora bracelet, and best of all I finally picked the diaper bag I have been trying to find in a print I can live with. I am a big Vera Bradley fan but its hard for me to stick with one purse for months and since the diaper bag is $100 I don't think I'm going to be switching the diaper bag out every couple months. I will post a pic of it later today!! Now off to enjoy this beautiful 80 degree weather in New England!
