The Elite and Exclusive - Chatham, Cape Cod

Photo Friday!


Our first stop in Cape Cod was in Chatham, the rich and stiff community of Southern Cape Cod. It wasn’t our favorite place on the Cape – I mean we’re not exactly part of the millionaire elite who frequent the rambling beach front estates. But it was quite charming, exuded colonial style, and definitely had some incredible beaches.


We took some time to admire the town…but one look at a store front price tag sent us running for the water.


Lighthouse Beach was divine – named rightly so after the lighthouse overlooking the sandy shores.





We also wandered over to the Fish Pier. Now, let me get something straight. Dan and I are strict vegetarians – and that includes seafood. But for once in my year plus of being vegetarian I actually considered eating seafood. Cape Cod was the most difficult place to be vegetarian! Every restaurant served up plates full of fish, crustaceans, and all kinds of scary looking sea creatures. But – that being said- our arrival at the Fish Pier definitely snapped me out of my predicament. One look at all those bloody fish and well…I took back every awful thought I had about reverting on my vegetarianism just to eat some fish. Other than the unloading of the dead sea creatures – the Fish Pier was quite the delightful place. All the sea lions and birds swarmed the area hoping for a cast off fish and the setting was picturesque with the boats bobbing on the water. I try to always find the good in the bad.



The weather was beginning to clear and Dan and I had high hopes of navigating the Cape northward in order to stick our feet in the sun warmed sand of Cape Cod National Seashore. As we left Chatham I couldn’t help but hope that on my next visit I will be one of those select few lounging by my sea side pool, munching on some delish vegetarian fare, while my bronzed pool boy fetches me a drink… Hey, a girl can dream!
