Cape Cod has become a family tradition. For a few years now, we’ve traveled there once or twice a year with my parents to enjoy the beach and surroundings. Dennis had become our usual spot, but after some flooding we were forced to relocate our trip somewhere else. We found a beautiful home in Eastham, where we enjoyed a week of relaxation, sand, and sun.
Back in June we had many adventures, including a pirate boat ride and museum visits. This trip, however, was much more relaxed. Aside from going out to dinner at Karoo and visiting Earth House in Orleans, we stayed put between the beach house rental and the beach. That was perfectly alright with us!
A beautiful thing happened this time around. We didn’t bring an arsenal of beach toys. There were a few buckets and shovels to use, but Brayden decided that he wasn’t interested in them this time around. Instead, he took joy in playing in the sand and drawing pictures, as well as collecting and playing with seaweed. I couldn’t help but smile at his ideas and desire to play in nature.
One of our days there, I took Brayden’s annual “NOT back to school” portraits. They were inspired by the many first day of school pictures on my Facebook feed. I wanted to capture our back to school week, which we spend at the empty beaches.
It was a beautiful week, and we look forward to returning to the Cape next year!
