The Party's over

Homeward bound


It's 5:00 a.m. and I'm up for the sunrise here on the Cape before we head for home. I just sent Jane a text letting her know this is the last morning on the porch . "Be right down"....is all she wrote!

It's a Cape Cod day! We are all packed up, the house is as it was when we arrived and ready for the next group that will enjoy their week as we have. We all leave by 8:30. Dougie and Bevie heading for New Hampshire, Dennis and Jane are driving directly home to beat the traffic and then there is the two of us stretching out the vacation as far as the bridges before we start our rocket-ride home. There are lots of yard sales which we browse through but find no treasures. I was eyeing a lawn sculpture of a frog at The Lemon Tree Shop on the way in...(at the beginning of the week) and wanted to see it again on the way out. He now sits in the back of the car and is enjoying my singing as we drive back to New York. I also picked up a nice shirt at La Bodega. That... was a nice treat! With several miles under our belts .. brunch comes to mind. We stop in Barnstable at The Blue Plate Diner....a Monte Cristo with Molasses/maple syrup dipping sauce for me and the usual for Rick (eggs over easy with hash browns and rye toast). We drive on..a few more yard sales...still no treasures. We arrive in Sandwich, once again. Craft Fair on the Library lawn...we stop and have a look. There are not as many vendors and nothing that piques my interest.

Well, it's 1:30 pm and we are crossing the Bourne Bridge! Goodbye Cape Cod...til next year!

A few pit stops on the Mass Pike, a stop at the market for some staples for the next few days, unpack the car, water the garden and finally....we are
relaxing on the couch.

It has been a great vacation but....the party is over!

P.S. I'm already dreaming about next year!
