A Getaway to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard....

There is nothing like a "girlfriend getaway" and I recently spent some time on Cape Cod with old friends.

Well, we do not think we are "old" at all and could certainly keep up with any young'in we know!!

I spent a week in Sandwich and a few days out on the Vineyard!

I enjoyed walking the beaches in Sandwich and Falmouth...

...took many, many photos...
There was a little "drinking" going on....

....and a few days on Martha's Vineyard....

...lots of good food...

....lots of color and scents....

....and inspiration...

...morning walks out to the foggy beach by the Edgartown Lighthouse ...

...strolling around the gingerbread cottages in Oak Bluffs...

...a little spying on artist and author Susan Branch in Tisbury, but she wasn't home!...

...enjoying the lovely view from the Harborside Inn...

...and a little shopping at some of my favorite shops:

...it was tough to leave!

There is nothing like spending time by the ocean, and even more enjoyable spending it with great friends!
