We didn’t schedule much on this vacation, by design. I tend to overplan, then I catch myself worrying about getting to next activity instead of living in the moment. So this trip we sort of took life as it came…which meant that once our pie date was over, we had no plans at all and most of a day to enjoy.
So we did a little shopping.
I didn’t get any pictures of this—I was afraid of what the owner might do if I pulled out a camera—but we went to Cape Cat shop (http://capecat.com/) because I was a little homesick for my boys and we had the time. It is NOT a store of items for your cat (this is very clear from multiple hand-lettered signs) and many of the things in the store are not for sale (more signs) and the artist/proprietor refuses to “kiss customers’ #$@” (direct quote), so it was quite the visit. He did unbend enough to take us to the back room and show off his sculptures made with rocks from the beach. They’re absolutely amazing and not for sale. I bought a cap; the design is the map of Cape Cod that is also a cat…you’ll have to check out the site to see it.
Why is it that Cape Cod restaurants feel the need to have cheesy “original” songs on their Web sites? I think the site for every place we visited sang at us. I don’t find that helpful, myself, but maybe that’s because I’m a music snob. But I digress…
We added a sampler appetizer platter, too. But no dessert, she notes virtuously, since we were planning a ‘last night on the Cape dinner’ for later.
Stuffed mushrooms, mussels monterey, oysters rockefeller and clams casino.
Vikki was ready for a nap then (have I mentioned she’s a champion napper?) so Rosemary & I dropped her off and set off on more adventures. But they’ll have to wait for the next post.
