A weekend in the Berkshires

One of the kindnesses I referenced here was a trip out of town with my friend Julie.


It was my first time visiting the Berkshires and the trip could not have been better: great company, wonderful food, terrific music, perfect weather, a good amount of wine – and even a celebrity sighting!

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 Two: Hyannis

After lunch in tiny Sandwich, Jen and I drove south and west toward Hyannis. Our goals were simple: see the bay and walk on the sand. Success.


We spotted a big house and walked toward it. From afar, it looked like a beautiful mansion. Up close, it reminded me more of Grey Gardens.

We walked onto the dock in front of the house.

Uh oh

Our next stop was Rite-Aid.

Rite Aid

Yeah. I saw the missing board. I acknowledged it. I stepped in the gap anyway.


Ouch. Who wants to see my three bruises?

Part Three was less eventful, more delicious. Promise.

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?

Next: Hyannis
