In mid-September we joined the Latta-Giulianas at their family cottage in Dennis Port on Cape Cod. It's becoming an annual event. It's great to be there after the crowds of summer have departed.
This year the weather and the ocean were still warm enough for swimming and we spent a fair bit of time at the beach a block from the cottage.
The cottage is in a "cottage park" that has a pond and wooded areas. This year, for the first time for our kids at least, the kids disappeared for long periods of time and explored the woods. After they had them mapped out, they took the adults on a tour.
One of the highlights was a dead heron.
We also had our traditional meal at the Dog House.
