My First Trip to Cape Cod

Visiting Cape Cod for the first time is definitely a great achievement for me. For the past three years of living in New England that's all I heard about. For those of you who are not familiar, Cape Cod is a  popular summer destination for those in New England.

Everyone I ever heard speak of Cape Cod only said great things. This weekend, I got the opportunity to explore it for myself. John had been wanting to go for a while and we finally planned a weekend to go with some friends. It was a bit far from where we were in Connecticut but the drive was worth it. The Cape is in Massachusetts - so about 3.5 hours from us. We left early to be able to enjoy the day.

It was a lot sunnier than I had thought it would be(got a pretty bad sunburn actually), so we had clear skies all day. We managed to do a lot in one day. Our first stop was the Canal that technically separates Cape Cod from the rest of the state and makes it an island.

 After finding the lighthouse we wanted to see we headed to Marconi Beach which is where we spent the majority of our day. It was unlike any beach I have ever been to. It was filled with massive sand dunes that were very impressive. The water was freezing though! I did manage to brave it and go inside. Good thing I did, since I saw a number of seals in the water. There were also many surfers.

Later in the day we went to a restaurant John wanted to take us to which was called Moby Dick's. It was a seafood place and it was delicious! I can't wait to go again. Our last stop was the Wellfleet Harbor and we had some icecream there. :)

It was a busy and long day, but it was so fun. I couldn't have asked for a better first time in Cape Cod.
