  • A Vacation Diary: Day Eleven

    (originally published on August 1, 2013)


    Day Eleven:

    • getting SUCH a good night's sleep
    • finding a tiny cairn on the beach that someone had built recently
    • watching Tipper chase seagulls at Herring Cove
    • eating trutas from the Portuguese Bakery 
    • drinking freshly squeezed watermelon lemonade
    • taking another lengthy photo walk around town on the most gorgeous summer day
    • discovering a giant fake shark down the alleyway between two buildings 
    • finally taking the Provincetown Trolley tour and enjoying seeing the town from a different angle
    • the scent of scrub pines and salt air as we drove around the Province Lands
    • quiet time to read
    • getting my long overdue Jamaica photos posted (you can see them here.)
    • an evening with no plans
    • country ribs, mashed potatoes, and a leafy green salad with blue cheese crumbles
    • the puppy deciding to sleep in my room and snuggling up next to me

    And this:
    "Standing on the veranda I breathed the sweetness of the air. Cloves I could smell and cinnamon, roses and orange blossoms. And an intoxicating freshness as if all this had never been breathed before."
