  • A Vacation Diary: Day Thirteen

    (originally published on August 3, 2013)


    Day Thirteen:

    • waking up to rain and thinking, "This is nice."
    • appreciating the slower pace in the town in the morning and being able to drive as slow as I want without anyone beeping
    • marveling again how nice it is to be in a place where you can hear the boats' horns as they back out
    • devouring the fried leftover cornmeal mush my mom made special for me for breakfast -- with maple syrup
    • finishing my Jamaica One Love Bus Tour video (watch it here)
    • eating cheddar dogs for lunch
    • stopping to buy strawberry pineapple jam and red pepper jelly at Briar Lanes Jam Stand in Wellfleet
    • picking up some super crusty french fig and fennel bread at PB Boulangerie in Wellfleet
    • winning this year's distance category for flying lobster pieces while eating at Moby Dicks, also in Welfleet (see lobster in photo above)
    • seeing the ospreys still in their nest in Wellfleet Harbor
    • enjoying the mix of maple bacon and peanut butter swirl ice cream
    • seeing a chipmunk at the ice cream place and watching it jump from table to tree to ground and back again
    • stopping at the Head of the Meadow beach to see how big the tidal pool has gotten (answer: HUGE)
    • a whole lotta fun instagramming

    And this:
    "One universal teaching from wayfinders is that we suffer more from our thoughts about events than from the events themselves."
