I always say that my parents’ house (my childhood home) on Cape Cod is my happy place. There’s nothing better than being home with my family… especially in the summer.
This particular trip was longer than usual (a whole week!) and a little bit gluttonous… I’m still paying for it. Lobster rolls, ice cream… we certainly indulged. But it was so much fun. Here’s a little photo diary of sorts. If you’re planning a Cape Cod trip anytime soon, be sure to check out my other Cape Cod posts. What to pack (here + here), and of course… my travel guide.
My sister Becca + her husband Steve.
We went to sushi one night at our favorite Japanese restaurant, Inaho. Their sushi is incredible… my parents think it’s the best sushi in the Northeast, and they know their stuff. The dish above is their scallop sashimi, which is out of this world. It comes stuffed inside a lime.
We spent several days at the Dennis Yacht Club, which is a misleading name as there aren’t any yachts… but it’s a fun place to go hang out and the lobster rolls are amazing.
And many early evenings on the patio… entirely too much rosé + food from my parents’ restaurant!
The oysters bienville at my parents’ restaurant is completely ridiculously good. Giant oysters, baked with pancetta, cream, tomatos, peppers, + other goodness. We had these nearly every night.
My sister Becca painted this mural inside the garden room at my parents’ restaurant. She’s so talented!
Lobster rolls at Sesuit Harbor Cafe… a tradition!
My mom’s new dog Muddy… she’s the cutest (and a little bit of a terror!)
I can’t wait to go back in a few days (I have another wedding there this weekend…)
PS – My sister posted her photos from the trip here.
