Cape Cod Adventure

After New York, A decided to take a couple of days off work so we can have a long weekend together (aaahh). We looked at a number of options before he had the inspired idea of going whale watching off Cape Cod.

We picked up a car and headed north. We made Woodbury Common our first stop. I picked up a new handbag from summer handbag because it is white. And couldn't resist a 7 jeans, in petite fit...made just for me! Woodbury Common is fantastic but not as good as Sawgrass Mills near Miami.

We stayed at this Victorian B&B in Sandwich. Very cute, with rickety floorboards and wonky walls.

Our whale watch was with Dolphin Fleet who operates out of Provincetown...right at the end of that tip of Cape Cod. Didn't realise this but it is still 60 or so miles from Sandwich so we set off early.

I handed the camera to A because his height enabled him to shoot over everyone up front. And we were so fortunate to see over ten whales. This whale was waving her fins about

and a tail...

from which I made this layout.

I have used Truprint collage again, copied the whale and flags from Dolphin Fleet's leaflet, drew the lighthouse based on one on a crisp packet that I saved and used a lot of broad nib markers to colour in.

This layout is inspired by Shimelle's Stickery Challenge.

We did that very Whale Watch! But some years ago, before the children were born. We loved Cape Cod and would love to go back

As always, a beautiful page full of lively detail and so much to enjoy
