Summer with Talbots

Summer Styles from Tuckernuck

Monday, September 15, 2014


Last weekend, after spending a delightful day in Newport with #1 and Adorable Jonathon, we ventured out to Provincetown the next day.  We wanted to pack as much New England charm into the weekend as we could for our Texas visitors.

We took a ferry from Plymouth to P-Town, as the locals call it.  We were blessed with another beautiful day. 

Photobomb Mom!

The boat ride was about an hour and a half.

We were docked next to a reproduction of the Mayflower.

Arriving into the dock in P-town.

Happy couple plus boring guy checking his email. 

To classify P-town as colorful is an understatement.

This guy was ogling me from afar.  I am a sucker for a guy who wears a crab hat.

He was a little on the quiet side.

Pepe's Wharf  was recommended to us for lunch and it did not disappoint.  Everything from the host who was a dead ringer for Andy Warhol to the beachfront patio were spectacular. 

I've eaten more lobster and ridden in more boats this summer than I have in my whole entire life.

P-town has plenty of art galleries.

Love all the well-manicured beach cottages.

These people must be TCU fans.

This store had beautiful home accessories.

I just wanted to sit on a bench and people watch.

What a pretty inn with the gorgeous red geraniums.

Before we got on the boat to come back to Plymouth, the crew warned us that rough seas were ahead.  The people that were getting off the boat had just gone whale watching and quite a few got seasick.  

We didn't get sick - just soaked from the waves.  Not quite as bad as the lady over my left shoulder,though.  

The next day we took Adorable Jonathon and #1 to the airport.  I don't want to tell tales out of school, but a certain someone got his first speeding ticket of  his whole life.  Welcome to the club, Mister!

Hope your Monday feels like a Friday!
