Had a dreamy time on our short little summer vacation which included stops in Newport, RI; Cape Cod; and Boston. We didn’t have a plan, just drifted from one place to the next. Even left home on a whim, throwing a few things together before taking off the following morning.
We struck the small-town lottery on Cape Cod, spinning the roulette wheel to end up in the idyllic town of Chatham. Amazing beaches + fresh seafood + quaint little shops + abundant hydrangeas = perfect lazy beach town. We all want to move there.
After strolling around Newport and cruising along the seashore, we serendipitously stumbled upon a kite festival at Brenton Point. This place was amazingly beautiful, with the rocky coast and sailboats peppering the ocean.
Strolling around the Cape Cod Inflatable Park, a crazy place we happened upon. We actually found it the night before, but about 15 minutes before they closed. Finnian cried when we drove away, shouting, “play!” over and over again. :(
Saying “hi” to and petting the ocean creatures at the New England Aquarium in Boston Harbor:
More photos of our excursion can be found in my Flickr stream here. Still relishing in our family outing, which we can easily repeat in a weekend since everything is relatively close by :)
