Early Friday morning we were up early to coffee and then made headed out, taking Steve's two boats out on the water and into the inlet where we were going to get some beach time.
We also did some clamming and Daryl and I learned how to rake the mud for clams and steamers. It was really cool! The kids all had a blast.
Anyway, the majority of the day was spent sun-bathing, reading and relaxing for me while everyone else either boogey-boarded, built sand castles, chatted and enjoyed the beautiful weather. And I even took a quick (unexpected) dip in the ocean when Big D so kindly knocked me over. I made sure to immediately jump on his back and pull HIM down into the ocean, thereby accidentally ripping the crotch of his swim trucks. NICE.
Hours later, we all headed back towards the house (in our multiple vehicles) and Christina, myself and three of the kids (the girls aged 11-13) stopped at the grocery store to get some staples that we were lacking at the house, most importantly stuff to make ice cream sundaes with! Then once home, I took my very first OUTDOOR shower. I know no one could see me in the shower but becuz it was open on top to the sky, I just felt so exposed and....uh...NAKED. I hated it. LOL. We grilled steaks and burgers for dinner, and cooked some corn on the cob. The other adults (minus me and Christina who don't like seafood) made clams casinos and also cooked up the steamers. Everyone was completely stuffed afterwards went to bed somewhat early. Saturday morning Daryl made breakfast for all eleven of us. Scrambled eggs, bacon and toast. Then after showers, the girls and boys went our separate ways. The boys went out clamming again while the girls hit up a local flea market, Christmas Tree Shop and a tee-shirt shop. A couple of hours later, all eleven of us were back on the road. On the way to our destination we stopped at this really cool lighthouse to take some pictures.
Finally, we all headed out to P-Town for some sight-seeing, sweet treats and fun. We saw a replica of a pirate ship, endless storefronts of adorable souvenirs, and a crazy-ass yacht called Hooters IV filled with nothing but incredibly HOT, tanned, muscled gay men dressed in nothing but speedos, colorful (and short) sarongs and smiles. Not a hooter in sight. Ironic, no? Finally we headed home where most people had a late grilled dinner (I chose to go straight to my ice cream sundae) and then to bed.
Sunday morning we woke up early to donuts and coffee that Big D brought back from Dunkin Donuts. We headed out to our ten a.m. Whale Watch and proceeded to take a billion and one pictures. It was completely amazing to see this large and lithe beautiful creatures jump and dive in the water. The day was gorgeous as well with sunshine and a lovely ocean breeze. I did get sunburn on top the sunburn I already had on my nose but it was nothing super painful. I'll leave you with the last picture we took of our trip, a sun-burned but completely relaxed and happy Daryl and I. Cape Cod was heavenly.
