If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air
Quaint little villages here and there
You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod
We rented a mini van and with our parents and aunt, my sister and I drove to Cape Cod last week. The drive was about 4 hours not counting the stops for coffee, lunch and outlet malling. The weather had been beautiful, nice and perfect during the daytime and chilly in the evenings. This is afterall the first weekend of autumn.
The route along Interstate 95 was brightening up with the beginnings of autumn colors. The further north we went the denser the colors.

Our long weekend had stops at Provincetown, which is the tip of the Cape Cod peninsula, a visit and mini tour at the Truro Vineyards, feasted on lobsters at Eastham, an overnight at Hyannisport where we visited the JFK Museum and then a tour of the Breakers mansion at Newport in Rhode Island. My dad, the ever tennis aficionado, also made a stop at the International Tennis Museum in Rhode Island.
