cape cod weekend.

We spent this past weekend on a little getaway to the Cape.
Even though it's only a short drive from Rhode Island,
this was my first time there and I pretty much fell in love. 
Every little town epitomizes all that New England has to offer.

We stayed at a little B&B in Chatham, on the southeast corner of Cape Cod.
The whole town was beyond gorgeous. 
It's surrounded on three sides by water.
Shingled houses, hydrangea everywhere, and quaint little downtown
complete with ice cream shops, penny candy counters, and one of a kind boutiques.

We lucked out with picture perfect weather all weekend.
And I took this opportunity to break out my Cannon again. Felt good.
We started out the weekend driving to Provincetown, at the very tip of the cape.

main street P-town. cute little shops.
isn't he handsome?








pilgrim on a bike, yep.
gorgeous.
pretty roses. the beach behind main street.
 We spent the day exploring the shops and interesting folk that make up P-town.
Then made our way back toward Chatham to check into our abode for the next few days.
the captain's inn.
breakfast on the patio each morning.
downtown Chatham.
beautiful beach.
we took a hike that lead to that little light house.
15 weeks on Nantucket sound!
before dinner.
the full moon rising over the bay.
a pretty ending to the night.
Sorry for the photo overload, but I did try to narrow it down.
I guess it's safe to say our first trip to the Cape was a success,
and we can't wait to return.

The husband and I love taking little mini trips like this.
I know they won't be quite as easy once we have a little one in tow,
So we're really soaking it all up!
We have another little getaway planned for the fall,
a babymoon of sorts :)

Hope you all had a great weekend!
