I went to Long Beach

Long Beach is just 25 miles from where I live in Brooklyn.

I went to Cape Cod – Part Three: Falmouth

This is the last installment of the trip I took to Massachusetts to visit one of my favorite people. Here are parts one and two.

I’m light on pictures from Falmouth because our chief objective upon arrival was FOOD. But Falmouth did welcome us with a rainbow.


Osteria La Civetta filled the bill. We sat at the bar and enjoyed Northeastern Italian food in bustling restaurant. It was clearly a local favorite.

Then it was time to go home. What a great day!


I went to Cape Cod – Part One: Sandwich

As you may have seen from my tweets, I went to Massachusetts to visit one of my favorite people.

The weather cooperated Saturday so we took a day trip to Cape Cod. I had never been!

We made the most of the beautiful day, checking out three towns.

First: Sandwich

We browsed at the Sandwich Artisans show at the public library.


I bought myself a pair of earrings from Mei Mei of Lexington.

Later we had lunch at the Brown Jug, also in Sandwich, on their charming patio.



Have you been to Sandwich? If so, what did you think?
