Map of my heart

Cape Cod


Destination: Provincetown.


It's that time of year again for some sun and fun on Cape Cod. It's been a strange and hectic year so far and we haven't had any time off since that awesome trip to Africa in March. ...so ...we are due some much needed R & R . A wedding reception and an extra day of work prevents us from leaving the day early that is typical for this yearly trip so we leave at the crack of dawn on Sunday morning. A smooth 3 hr. 15 minute drive and we are over the bridges and on the Cape...smoothest ride we've ever had to these parts. Coming out on Sunday feels a bit different...much quieter, not all stores are open, no yard sales, not many people milling about. This has also been a dry season, weatherwise, so those gorgeous hydraengas that I enjoy seeing on the ride to PTown...already spent. Barely any blooms to enjoy. Oh well, it makes me appreciate them even more. You know what they say..."absence makes the heart grow fonder". We make our usual stops and arrive at the house @ 2 o'clock. Dougie is home, the rest of the group went to Wellfleet for the day. After some catching up and some belly laughs (already)..in walks the Jane and Denny, Jo and Bevie. The party has started. The Cosmos and wine are served and on the porch we gather once again to catch up on our lives, reminisce and laugh. Rick and Dougie have fun with some music trivia...John Williams, John Wayne, sign language as a result of a hearing deficit, etc. Nothing has changed here...


Jo opts for a night in-house, the rest of us...all in for a walk to PTown. Beautiful photo ops on the way in, the old familiar sites in town (some old, some new), Rick and Dougie - amongst the missing, a bus ride back to the house ( with a senior citizen discount for all of us...you have to be 58 years old to get this big break) and back on the porch (Rick and Dougie found) for more laughs. This group, this place...marks a definite spot on my heart.
