Best thing to do on a Saturday?
Besides reading an email that one of your oldest/ dearest friends Finally had that baby!
is to semi-spontaneously go to the Cape for the day. Which is what we did yesterday.
1. Wake up at 5:30, drive 3.5 hours to meet friends at Campground Beach in Eastham. Frolic, read, munch. Enjoy low and high tides. Send someone out to get homemade doughnuts and iced coffee at Hole -in -one bakery just down the road. Ignore scary voices in head and eat doughnut while wearing a bathing suit.
2. Go to Mac's Seafood in Wellfleet. Eat amazing lobster rolls, lobster bisque, fish n chips, onion rings etc. Hit playground next door. Force kids to use potty. Wipe a bit of sand off of them and head home at 7:30 pm to avoid bridge traffic.
3. 11 pm- Carry filthy kids from car and deposit in bed.
A bit crazy? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely.
