Hello dear friends. I hope that you enjoyed your week. I had a great one - I got a lot done and had a lovely lunch at the beach with my new bff, Anne, and Susie, a great lady who reads my blog and also happens to be in the needlepoint group. We all adore blogs and I received many suggestions to add to my arsenal of
A couple of weekends ago, the Mister and I spent the day in the picturesque town of Chatham.
Now for the geography lesson.
Chatham is located in the "elbow" of Cape Cod.
That's all I got. Geography has never been my strong suit.
The last time I was in Chatham was when I was 7 years old. My parents took me to the Chatham Bars Inn for a week. Can't remember too much. I do, however, remember relishing in the idea of being an only child again.
We had to leave Sista at home with a wicked witch of a babysitter. She was going through the terrible twos stage. Lucky for us, it only lasted 15 years.
Chatham is the quintessential New England town packed with charm and beauty. Main Street is the place to go if you want to go to a house of worship or shop 'til you drop. Guess which one I chose.
The Public Library.
Our first stop was this darling shop.
I took home this little sexy number. I hate when a headless dummy looks better in a dress than I do.
The Mister joked with the owner that he wanted to order a case of this stuff. I threw him an eye roll and proceeded to ignore him.
Now we're getting into the Mister's area...
Awe-inspiring window boxes added the finishing touches to the quaint shops.
Isn't this fence adorable?
Jack better get with the program and put some flowers in those sad looking pots.
This entire shop is swimming in rubber ducky paraphernalia.
I like to shop and the Mister likes to memorize menus.
We enjoyed a great lunch at this restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. The ambiance is a little dated, but then again, I think they call that "charm."
Of all the towns that I have visited in the Cape, I have to say that Chatham is my favorite so far. It offers great shops, a graceful Main Street, and hospitable shop people.
After some serious shopping, menu memorizing, and a great lunch, we packed up our rubber duckies and hit the road.
Until next time...
