Two weekends ago I spent a few days in Cape Cod with my girl, Brooke (aka BLB). We had the absolute best time – this was my very first trip to the Cape and it was even better than I imagined. Amazing food, stunning views, perfect weather, and the best company! Brooke and I had two full days to explore, and we took full advantage!
Cape Cod Mini-Vacation
Day #1 was a travel day. We made great time leaving at 8am, arriving around 1:30pm. We grabbed sandwiches at The Salty Market (anyone planning on going to North Truro, you must visit this cute store). The rest of the day consisted of settling in and preparing for the next few days. We had the most amazing view from our room (we stayed at Horizons Beach Resort) and had direct access to the beach. It was unreal.
Beach day, beach day! Brooke and I spent the majority of the day at the Cape Cod National Seashore! This beach was stunning – beautiful water, the smoothest sand, SEALS(!!), and the best people watching. Plus, admission was free – apparently the weekend we visited was the celebration of the 100th anniversary of national parks. What did this mean for us? We had $30 extra to spend on wine slushies tomorrow! I think that was the highlight of the day, honestly.
The rest of the evening consisted of drinking wine to prepare for our evening in Provincetown. We caught a bus (we survived!) and spent the evening exploring the bustling town. We shopped around for a bit and then headed to the Lobster Pot for dinner – seriously, if you’re ever in Provincetown, please go to this restaurant, you will not be dissapointed! It is SO worth the wait (and yes, we waited 1 1/2 hours). Make sure to say “Hello” to Sean for us!
Day 3 was another beach and wine day! We spent the morning on the beach and then popped over to the Truro Vineyards – less than a five minute drive down the road from our hotel. Once there we indulged in wine slushies, hotdogs smothered in bacon jam, and a little photoshoot action. There was even an ice cream truck that stopped by for an hour or so (we had to restrain ourselves, it was really difficult).
We then headed back to the beach to enjoy the rest of the afternoon (and a bottle of wine!). Can’t get much better than that.
Dinner was spent at The Beachcomber, where I tried my first raw oyster (still unsure of my feelings) and the freshest cod sandwiches. Best. Day. Ever.
Our last morning in the Cape! We drove into Provincetown for breakfast (and had the best breakfast sandwich of our lives at Pop+Dutch). We then hit the road and headed back to reality, determining we should probably do a cleanse after all the carbs, alcohol, and fried goodness we consumed in the last few days.
What an amazing trip! Thank you to Brooke for inviting me and thank you mother nature for giving us the most perfect weekend of blue skies, sand, and sunshine.
