away we went

This summer was a doozie. There were more tragedies, major life events, and serious surgeries and news from doctors happening to friends and family than I have fingers for on one hand. Wham, one after the next. Didn't know who to knit or cook for first. I hate it when I have to triage my friend's needs! Thank goodness my arms were never running out of hugs. 

Then the guy upstairs must have known that we needed a break, and 10 days before we knew we were able to get away, I found a small cottage on Cape Cod and it was for rent for that week and we went. Thank you, God.

The weather was good on most days, we alternated  a couple of beach days with sightseeing and our little family pod had fun. It was nice to just be together, pack a cooler every day and go out there, explore, or be lazy, sun ourselves and read books.

6 days of vacation, the first in 6 years. Not sure when we can do it again, but just being able to look at these pictures and say "I am so glad we did that" goes a very long way....


  1. Hmmm...wouldn't that last photo with the blue sky and beach umbrella make a good sock yarn dye? Just sayin......Great photos! Wish I was there too.

  2. I'm so glad that you got the time away. it sounds like it was much needed.

  3. So glad you had a great time! Some of those photos look like Mayflower beach to me! Mmmm. Can smell the sea air now!

  4. Oh Karin, i am so glad you got away and had a good time. I am getting away for 2 days in October and we are taking the whole family to Lake Placid to relax. It's been 5 years for us since we had a vacation, and these last 2 1/2 years have been difficult at best for us. One of my favorite places is Cape Cod. I hope someday to return.


Thank you for leaving a comment! It means the world to me.
