Weekend at Cape Cod


MB and I went to Truro on Cape Cod, Massachusetts over the weekend to attend her Sullivan family party that was held at her brother's place.

We drove to Portland, Maine and then took a bus to Boston.  We then walked about half an hour to the ferry terminal and took the boat to Provincetown which was about a 90 minute ride. The boat was amazingly fast and the scenery quite wonderful.

P-town as it is called was loaded with tourists as there was a festival there over the weekend.  MB's brother lives right across the street from the bay so it was a relaxing time to sit on the deck and enjoy the water and the beautiful sunsets.

The family party, as always, was big and loud with loads of food and the famous Sullivan family desserts.

Then on Sunday we took the ferry back to Boston, walked to South Station for the bus which took us back to Maine.

It was a great weekend and we are so glad we didn't try to drive all the way to Cape Cod.  No stress, just a fun weekend and always great to hang out with her two brothers.

This was our first taste of any kind of summer vacation - short but still sweet.  But there is more to come next weekend.  More on that later.
