Trip to the Cape, Pt. 2

Hello, everyone!
Let's continue our walk through Sandwich ♥ . . .

My Dream Home in the distance ♥

Another lovely house on Grove Street

Yet another one!

Beautiful view of the pond


Taking a little break before we
head towards the center of town

The Sandwich Glass Museum
(you'll see more on that later!)

The First Church of Christ

Gorgeous house and garden in town

Closeup on the stunning rose bush

Yes... I was quite enamored with this house!


On Route 6A (I believe), 
heading back towards the inn


More patriotism for Flag Day
(love that flag-curtained-over-the-doorway idea!)

Pretty house diagonal from our inn

Relaxing on the property's 
adorable Adirondack chairs

Stepping back in to get ready for dinner!

The key rack next to the door
(isn't it so cute?)

Our room key :)

Onto dinner! We had our first delicious 
meal at the Aqua Grille, adjacent to 
the beautiful Cape Cod canal . . .

Enjoying a "Summer Vacation"
(the name suits the occasion!)

Penne & Eggplant Caponata with eggplant, 
onions, olives, tomatoes and Parmesan cheese
... Yum!

 Savoring the beautiful sunset

After dinner, we headed on over to
Hemisphere to have an drink and take in
the wonderful views of Cape Cod Bay . . .

 So peaceful...

 Chatting on the deck

 Such colors!

 Mom and I in the bar

 A Malibu Bay Breeze for me, and Chardonnay for Mom!

 Back at the inn, winding down in the living room

 Adorable coasters

 Good read!

  1. Oh Erin what magnificent photo's, the cottages are so gorgeous and I loved the pale pink exterior on one of them. I am looking forward to seeing more and so glad you and your Mom had a wonderful time! Best wishes from Ann ~ Australia.

  2. What a wonderful thing, a Mother-Daughter trip. My daughter and I were also talking about doing just such a thing. We think that D.C. might be our destination. The homes pictured are fantastic. So much history has been lovingly preserved.

  3. Erin, these photos are so truly Sandwich.....beautiful job capturing the essence of what was my hometown for so many years.
    PS...That pink house has always been a favorite of mine. I knew the original owner and am so happy that the current residents are maintaining the pink! How nice you visited when the roses were blooming.

  4. It's just so lovely, and it feels so peaceful..., and come to think of it..., I could be there in less than two hours!!! And I adore your super cute shell bracelet!!
