the Cape

Nathan and I are now in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. We are visiting a part of the world where I spent almost a year of my life. It has been an extremely nostalgic part of the trip so far and it has been great to share it with Nathan.
We have been staying with my former land lady, a wonderful woman who is now 80. It has been fantastic catching up with her and staying in the old house again.
Yesterday, we took the ferry to Martha's Vineyard which is a popular tourist haunt for the rich and famous and also the location where Jaws was filmed. I did my research beforehand and dragged Nathan to the nearest seafood take away where we proceeded to order (and devour) way too much.
In the evening we took my former land lady out to dinner at a fancy French restaurant in a nearby town.   I was too full from lunch so I ordered the 'starter'. I was told by the waiter it was small. American serving sizes are huge.
Today we head back to Boston for a couple of days.

I drove a rusted out Buick Century all around upstate New York and the New England states, it was fun.

It sure is a beautiful part of the world and a driving holiday would have been a terrific way to see it.

I don't know whether we will venture far from NYC when we are there in September but your post makes me hope so.

You should try Victor...Cape Cod is very beautiful (though after the bus ride we just had...stuck in traffic), I'm more inclined to catch the train next time between Boston and NYC.
