For the fourth year in a row we joined our friends the Latta-Giulianas at their family cottage in Dennisport, Cape Cod, for the weekend after Labor Day.
We've established a bunch of traditions as part of this weekend:
- Eat hot dogs at The Dog House
- Eat ice cream at the Sundae School
- Visit a cool outdoor place (this year it was Long Pasture Audubon Sanctuary)
- Lots of independent kid play in the quiet cottage community
This year Audrey and I added a 30-mile bike ride. Last year she and I rode the 10-mile route at Hub on Wheels. Audrey said she'd like to ride the longer route. So we've been going on training rides to work up to the 40-mile ride around Boston next weekend. We rode on the beautiful Cape Cod Rail Trail.
It was warm and a little humid this year. But we slept with the van side door and hatch wide open (we have screens), and the girls enjoyed the screened windows on three sides in the tent upstairs. It was delightful sleeping in warm temps and a breeze.
And now it's time for fall. After the 85 degree day we're going to have on Wednesday, that is.
