Good morning world! I am back from my mini vacation. I had quite the meltdown yesterday when I figured out how hard it is for me to relax. I have 4 weeks to perfect it, so I’ll keep trying!
This should have been my first clue that Cape Cod is not my type of place. Tons of fanny packs and farmer’s tans. The drive up wasn’t too bad. I got there around 3:00 and tried to find my friend’s house. I figured out how to get to the beach and used the visitor’s center bathroom. When my friend got out of work at 3:30, she showed me two of the beaches and drove me around a bit.
There have been sharks at the beaches around the cape, so my friend told me that she only goes in the water if she sees one seal. If there are more than one seal, there are probably sharks around. This was only one seal! The water at the beach was WAY too cold for me (I’m used to the bathwater of Florida), but the water on the other side of the cape (where the seal picture was taken) was nice and warm.
After the beach, we went out to dinner.
I got a black bean and portabella burger. When I ordered it, the waitress “broke the news” to me that it was a veggie burger. Clearly, I knew that and was fine with it. I’m pretty sure they cooked it in bacon. It had a distinct scent.
The next morning, I decided to hit the beach!
I ate a banana at the beach, then a peach when I got back and played with the dog.
For lunch, I cracked open some of my favorite pre-made vegan food..
The rest of my day was spent reading and *cough*cough* doing homework.
For dinner we went to this place called Sam Diego’s. I wasn’t impressed.
In case you think I’m vegan… this was a buffalo chicken quesadilla. I was highly disappointed in it. It wasn’t spicy at all! This disappointment didn’t stop me from eating the whole thing. At least I didn’t eat the blue cheese or the chips and salsa. Small victories.
Then I started on my way home. I tried to beat the gps. It told me I would be getting home at 8:49. I made it home by 8:33!
We have to be out of the apartment this weekend, so we’re going to Vermont. Today, I have to finish my school work for the week and clean the apartment. I was going to hit the gym, but I did something to my foot and it gave me the excuse to skip. I’ll do some at home exercise and cleaning, but I need to make sure I’m good to go on Friday!
I’ll be bringing my actual camera this weekend unlike this trip where I just used my phone. I don’t plan on bringing my computer.. but we’ll see
