#wanderlust tales – Cape Cod 17


Gourmet Heaven and Zen beachcombing!

Hello fellow wanderlusters,

Today I wanted to tell you about our mini-vacation in Cape Cod. #Goodtimes!

 

Cape Cod, a hook-shaped peninsula of the U.S. state of Massachusetts, is a popular summertime destination. It’s the site of quaint villages, seafood shacks, lighthouses, ponds and bay and ocean beaches. In the large town of Hyannis, the John F. Kennedy Museum is the first stop on the Kennedy Legacy Trail through downtown, where ferries depart to the resort islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

Area: 339 mi²
Elevation: 305′
Location: Massachusetts, United States
Population: 215,888 (2010)

 

 

 

 

We stayed two nights at Cape Codder Resort & Spa. The Spawns had a blast, of course, but I give it only 3.5 stars. The common areas were cutely decorated coastal style, well maintained and clean. But, I wasn’t too impressed with the room though, which seemed a little rundown.

The water park is a lot smaller than other water parks we had visited in the area, like Great Wolf Lodge New England so I was glad we were only a handful of families there because we went the weekend before Memorial Day weekend, though this was why many of the accesses between areas were closed and we had to go around and walk for minutes to get to areas that were right next to us.

Most of the staff was very pleasant so, in general was an overpriced but fun experience. My favorite would have to be the heated outdoor pool with the hot tub and the spa!

It was a weekend of “firsts”. Butterfly did her first communion, visited a a spa for the first time, and got her first manicure.

It was also the first time the Spawns went to a Brazilian Grill! [where you can eat ALL the meat you want!]. We had lunch there on day two and it was…

HEAVENLY!

The best gastronomic experience we have had in a very long time! I can’t recommend it enough!

Day one dinner was at Palio Pizzeria, which was a little overpriced but really good!

Day two breakfast was at The Gourmet Brunch. Amy, our waitress, was super nice and the food delicious!

I went for the “Brunch Supreme”…

A tender Artichoke Heart hidden in a light golden pastry Puff topped with lean Ham, covered by a fresh Poached Egg and ‘Gourmet Special Cheese Sauce’ Sprinkled with luscious Crabmeat. Garnish of pineapple and orange

YUM!

We also took a stroll for Main St. to buy some souvenirs…

And right before driving back home we went beachcombing to Keyes Memorial Beach. We were the only ones there so it was a very zen experience. 🙂

 

Hope you visit New England and Cape Cod soon!

Thank you for visiting!
